WHAT IS CAUSING MY HEAD PAIN?
Head pain involves more than just headaches. Pain in the jaw, under or around the eyes or even at the top of your neck are all considered head pains. Whether it lasts for just a few hours or for a few days, we are all too busy for downtime from head pain. It may be time to come see us if you are experiencing any of the following with your head pain:
• Pain that gets steadily worse
• Pain that prevents you from normal daily activities
• Pain that increases with movement
• Head pain from an injury that has affected your balance, coordination, or movement
• Unusually severe headaches
It can be difficult to identify the type of head pain you suffer from: tension, sinus, migraines, or menstrual headaches. Most head pains are not caused by an underlying disease, but from common daily situations such as a need for eyeglass prescriptions, exposure to loud noises, stress, etc.
Possible reasons for pain in the head and surrounding area include but are not limited to:
• Head or neck trauma
• Joint pain/inflammation
• Poor posture
• Sleep deprivation
Head pain can be aggravating, especially when it keeps you from your normal activities. At Integrity Physical Therapy, we want you to feel your best.
