Headaches can be classified into 12 different categories, however the most common is the tension or “stress” headache, cluster headaches, sinus headaches and the migraine. Although not all headaches are the same, they all share at least one thing in common, they cause pain. But many headaches also cause other unwanted symptoms, including nausea and vomiting.

Treatment Options

At Pain Treatment Centers of Illinois, the physicians work closely with the patient to determine the exact cause of the headache and to tailor the patients treatment plan to the type of pain the patient is experiencing. Mild headaches can many times be treated with medications and relaxation techniques. However, there are some headaches that may require an injection into the joints or the source of pain in order to provide the patient with relief. Neurostimulation can also be used for some chronic headache sufferers. Contact us for additional information regarding your treatment options.
