Edward Magaziner, MD, CEO, New Jersey Interventional Pain Society, Assistant Professor, New York Medical College, Clinical Professor, Robert Wood Johnson University Dept. of Anesthesia and PM&R, Medical Director, Center for Spine, Sports, Pain Management, and Orthopedic Regenerative Medicine, North Brunswick, NJ, discusses different types of headaches and the methods used to treat them.
A variety of sources cause headaches. The key is to find what causes them and eliminate that trigger. Migraines are vascular headaches that are caused by chemical imbalances in the brain and are usually treated by neurologists and headache specialists with medications and lifestyle modifications.
Headaches can be caused by neck problems and muscle tension. Degenerative changes in the neck, such as looseness from age or injury, also contribute to the development of headaches. Headaches can originate from issues with the jaw as well.
Dr. Magaziner says the key to treating headaches is to make a proper diagnosis.
