Frequent Headaches Aren't Normal. Don't Treat Them as Such.

Having a headache now and then is okay. But if you're struggling with frequent, chronic headaches, time to see a professional who is skilled in treating headaches and migraines. For some people, untreated chronic headaches and migraines can keep them from living the life they want. Unfortunately, most conventional headache remedies merely mask the pain without preventing future episodes.
It's Not All In Your Head
Don't just hope your chronic headaches or migraines will go away on their own. If you've been living with this condition and haven't found relief yet, it's time to try a holistic and proactive approach to keep them away.

We offer cutting-edge headache and migraine therapy at Vitality Integrative Wellness in Temecula, CA. Pairing integrative and functional medicine with advanced treatment protocols, we create a personalized therapy plan designed to get you back on your feet headache-free.

Start Here: What are Chronic Headaches and Migraines
Headaches are a common medical condition characterized by pain or discomfort in the head or neck region. They can vary in intensity, duration, and location.

Common Triggers of Headaches

The causes of headaches can vary widely, but common triggers include stress, lack of sleep, dehydration, certain foods, alcohol, caffeine withdrawal, and environmental factors like strong odors and changes in weather.

Physical Causes of Headaches

On the other hand, the vast majority of chronic headaches and migraines are caused by strain or injury to the muscles, ligaments, joints, and nerves of the middle and upper cervical (neck) region.

It's important to note that some headaches may be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition, so it's crucial to seek medical attention if you experience severe or recurring headaches, especially if they are accompanied by other concerning symptoms like blurred vision or slurred speech.

A Real Solution Calls for an Integrative Approach

Vitality Integrative Wellness uses an integrative approach to tackle chronic and episodic headache conditions. We'll investigate if the root cause of your pain is coming from the musculoskeletal system or being caused by lifestyle factors. This approach is what makes integrative medicine different from traditional medicine. Instead of focusing on the symptoms or pain management, we're treating the root cause of your pain.

Here are some of our treatment options for headaches

Sinus Cavity Nerve Blocks (SPGB)

Sinus Cavity Nerve Blocks (SPGB)

We’ve helped patients successfully find relief from chronic and episodic migraines using a specific protocol called Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPGB).

SPGB is great for:

  • Migraine
  • Chronic Headache
  • Cluster headache
  • Trigeminal neuralgia (nerve pain that affects your face)
Therapeutic Massage Therapy

Therapeutic Massage Therapy

Massage therapies like trigger point therapy and manual lymphatic drainage, or therapeutic massages focused on the neck and head muscles, can help reduce the duration of headaches.

Usually, our massage therapy is only one part of a comprehensive headache treatment plan and can help reduce painful symptoms within a week.

Massage therapy is great for:

  • Tension headaches
  • Migraines
Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic works to remove pressure against inflamed nerves and relieve pain by realigning the spine's vertebrae.

Usually, chiropractic care is only one part of a comprehensive headache treatment plan. Depending on the cause of your chronic condition we may also use other functional medicine treatments and integrative medicines to effectively treat your condition.

Chiropractic care is great for:

  • Tension headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Cervicogenic headaches
Chiropractic Care

Trigger Point Injections

Tender knots can develop in the upper back, neck, or shoulder called myofascial trigger points. Often they’re a result of muscle strain or injury. This tension could be the cause of your headache. To treat it, a trigger point injection will be given in whichever area your headache is originating from.

Trigger point therapy is great for:

  • Cervicogenic headache
  • Migraine headache
  • Myofascial pain
  • Tension Headache
  • It may help with cluster headaches.

Long-term health and wellness:

Chronic headache relief is closer than you thought. By looking at the whole picture, we use functional medicine to help you achieve sustainable results that last.

Our integrative practice combines the best headache treatments in Temecula to get you back on your feet, headache-free.

The most common causes of headache conditions stem from problems associated with the muscles, ligaments, joints, and nerves of the middle and upper cervical (neck) region. During your consultation, we'll ask you several questions to take us to the root of your problem. We'll follow up with comprehensive testing.

Once we've completed our evaluation and testing, our integrated team of medical professionals will review your case and design a customized treatment plan. Your headache treatment plan may also utilize functional medicine and other integrative treatments to address any lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your headache condition.

Common types of headache conditions include:

Tension Headaches

Tension-type headaches are the most common type experienced by adults. These headaches may be the result of spasms in the muscles of the neck, jaw, and face.
Learn More About Tension Headaches:
What's the root cause of tension headaches?
Tension and stress in the neck and scalp cause these types of headaches. Injuries, excess stress, or strains to muscles, ligaments, joints, or nerves are typically the root cause of headaches. Treating musculoskeletal issues may bring relief from your tension headache.

Other causes may include a genetic- predisposition for tension headaches and environmental factors.

What does a tension headache feel like?
Generally speaking, a tension headache will feel like a rubber band tightening around your head and forehead.

How often and how long do they last?
If you experience fifteen or more headaches of this type every month, you may be suffering from chronic tension-type headaches (CTTH). They may be constant or come and go every few hours.

Migraine Headaches

Migraine headaches usually occur in conjunction with other neurological symptoms such as sensitivity to light and sound; numbness and tingling; or auditory and visual disturbances. Migraine headaches produce a throbbing pain that is often concentrated on one side of the head.
Learn More About Migraine Headaches:

What's the root cause of migraine headaches?
Stress, hormonal changes (including drops in estrogen during pre-menstruation), certain foods, and even changes in the weather are frequently the causes of migraine headaches. However, the exact root cause of migraine headaches is not fully understood. While some researchers think abnormal brain activity and changes in the nervous system could be the cause of migraines, others think genetics may be involved.

What does a migraine headache feel like?
Tale-tell signs of a classic migraine include sensitivity to light, nausea, and visual changes. Your facial pain might be more intense on one side than the other.

How often and how long do they last?
In certain cases, migraines can linger for days or even hours. One possible indicator of a chronic migraine disorder is a monthly migraine frequency of at least 15, with migraine symptoms occurring in at least 8 out of every 15. An episodic migraine disorder may be present if you experience headaches without migraine symptoms less than eight times.

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches occur periodically. They involve cycles of pain followed by remission.
Learn More About Cluster Headaches:

What's the root cause of cluster headaches?
Just like migraines, the root cause of cluster headaches is a bit murky. However, studies have shown that the posterior hypothalamus, a region of the brain, can also trigger a cluster headache attack when certain stressors activate it. (The hypothalamus is responsible for movement control, place learning, memory processing, emotions, and arousal.)

What does a cluster headache feel like?
Cluster headaches can be incredibly painful and feel as if they're concentrated in or around the eye socket. You may also experience other symptoms, like swelling around the eye and nasal congestion. Additional symptoms include increased feelings of agitation and restlessness.

Cluster headaches may be mistaken for paroxysmal hemicrania (PH) headache disorder. The symptoms are very similar, but the duration and frequency are much less than in cluster headaches. The main indication you have PH is that it will respond to the NSAID indomethacin, while cluster headaches will not.

How often and how long do they last?
A single episode may last from 15 minutes up to 3 hours. Cluster headaches can occur up to eight times per day, and then at least once every other day.

Episodic cluster-type headaches can last for 7 days to a period of one year, and you'll experience at least 3 months without pain in between bouts. Chronic cluster-type headache bouts last for more than a year, with no remission lasting more than three months.

Paroxysmal hemicrania: an update (Prakash and Patell)

Sinus Headaches

Sinus headaches are caused by inflammation of the sinuses due to allergies or as the result of an infection.
Learn More About Sinus Headaches

What's the root cause of sinus headaches?
Allergies, respiratory infections, or irritants like smoke or strong odors frequently cause sinus inflammation, congestion, and pressure that results in a condition called sinusitis. Seeking treatment for the underlying cause of sinus issues can help alleviate and prevent sinus headaches in the future.

Many different things can trigger sinusitis, including:

  • Frequently swimming or diving
  • Hay fever, asthma, or allergy history
  • Polyps or nasal swellings
  • Bone spurs
  • Face or nasal tumors
  • Septum deviation, cleft palate
  • High-altitude climbing or flying

What does a sinus headache feel like?
The inflammation and blockage in the sinuses can result in pain and discomfort, particularly around the eyes, nose, cheeks, and forehead, and lead to a headache. The pain tends to be concentrated around the brow bone or cheekbone and will get worse when you move your head or lean forward.

How often and how long do they last?
Your sinus headache should clear up once your sinus inflammation, congestion, or infection clears up. This may take anywhere from 7 to 14 days.

Pain killers can’t treat a chronic headache condition. Here’s why.

For most Americans, over-the-counter painkillers are the first line of defense against headaches. While these analgesics – including aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen – provide temporary relief, they can also cause rebound headaches and increase the frequency and severity of headaches. The same can be said about many prescription painkillers.

The human body uses pain as a warning sign that something is wrong. When pain is masked with medications, the cause of the problem is ignored. The body compensates for this by increasing pain and other symptoms, like headaches, thus perpetuating a cycle of chronic pain.

Learn More About Treating Chronic Headache Conditions

Most headaches are not caused by problems related to the head or skull. The brain itself does not have pain receptors. The vast majority of headaches are caused by problems associated with the muscles, ligaments, joints, and nerves of the middle and upper cervical (neck) regions. The other most common causes of reoccurring headaches include poor diet, stress, muscle tension, and a lack of exercise. As such, we need to dig deep to learn about what’s causing your headache before we can properly treat your pain. With a comprehensive plan that targets the underlying cause, you're more likely to experience a reduction in both the intensity and frequency of your headaches.

Treatment of Neck or Shoulder Muscle, Ligament, Joint, or Nerve Damage Related Headaches

Your bones, nerves, and musculoskeletal system are so intertwined that a disturbance in one system can result in issues with others and then chronic headaches. So by focusing on the headache, you could be completely missing the injury or tension happening somewhere else in your body that could get rid of your headaches rather than cover them up. When misalignments in the neck (cervical spine) irritate the nerves of the spine that travel to and from the brain, headaches are often the result. This misalignment may also cause some headache sufferers to become more susceptible to chemical imbalances in the brain that result in headaches.

In fact, research has shown that a dysfunctional relationship between the trigeminal nerve (which carries sensation from the face to the brain) and the cervical spine(neck) is a common trait in patients with chronic migraines. Vitality Integrative Wellness uses an integrative approach to normalize the musculoskeletal system to ease tension and stress on the soft tissues and joints of the spine. Treatment options like Sinus Cavity Nerve Blocks (SPG), massage, spinal decompression, trigger point injection and chiropractic care may all be utilized in your treatment plan.

Treatment of Lifestyle-Triggered Headache Conditions

Certain lifestyle factors can lead to chronic or episodic headache disorders, such as your diet and activity levels. For instance, eating too few calories can cause a drop in your blood sugar, which can lead to a headache. If you maintain this sort of diet for too long, then you might end up experiencing chronic headaches. If this is the case, our diagnostic testing can rule out the cause of your headaches as not related to the musculoskeletal system. We can then address the real cause and thus alleviate painful symptoms. We can also talk to you about putting you on the correct track for weight loss.

Functional Medicine and Headaches

Functional medicine and integrative medicine are incredibly effective when it comes to diagnosis and treatment. Through these methods, we utilize a deep understanding of biochemistry, lifestyle factors, and health and wellness concepts to get to the root cause of your symptoms. We use comprehensive diagnostic testing and an in-depth medical history to get to the bottom of your health issues. Once we know what we're treating, we can help guide you in correcting underlying imbalances related to hormones, food sensitivities, and nutritional deficiencies that could be leading to your chronic or episodic headaches.

Our Approach to Well-Being

At Vitality Integrative Wellness, we are committed to your well-being, and this commitment extends beyond traditional headache treatments. We'll help you find a treatment plan that leaves you feeling better and doesn't have a lot of damaging side effects.

Everything You Need to Know About Sinus Cavity Nerve Blocks (SPG)

Using a particular technique known as Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG), we have successfully assisted patients in achieving relief from both episodic and chronic migraines. During the treatment, a local anesthetic is administered to target a nerve bundle in the rear of the nasal passageways, delivering immediate and effective pain relief (SPG). But what is your sphenopalatine ganglion nerve, and what does it have to do with your chronic headache condition?
Learn More About Sinus Cavity Nerve Blocks

The primary nerve responsible for headaches, the trigeminal nerve, is connected to a collection of nerve cells located in the back of your nasal passageway called the sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG). This bundle of nerves is involved in processes like tear production and nasal congestion, as well as being responsible for delivering information about emotions and pain to the brain.

When you receive a sinus cavity nerve block, a skilled healthcare professional will inject a local anesthetic (that may or may not include steroids, depending on your headache condition). The purpose of the medication is to block pain signals from traveling through the sphenopalatine nerve to the brain. Further treatment may include RadiFrequency Ablation. This process includes delivering electrical current to the same block of nerves. The current will heat a small area of the nerve tissues and offer longer-term pain relief and decreased pain signals from that specific area.

What can SPGB be used for?

Research has found that SPGB treats four common headache conditions best, and those include:

  • Cluster headaches
  • Second-division trigeminal neuralgia, which causes face pain (the trigeminal neuralgia is a nerve that passes through the sphenopalatine ganglion)
  • Migraine headaches
  • To help reduce the need for painkillers after sinus surgery.

Other conditions that sinus cavity nerve blocks may be beneficial for include:

  • Hemicrania continua: A persistent headache restricted to one side of the face and never goes away. The condition is often mistaken for a migraine due to its similar symptoms.
  • Trigeminal neuralgia: face pain caused by the trigeminal nerve.
  • Dural puncture headache (spinal headache): The membrane (dura mater) enveloping the spinal cord can be punctured while receiving an epidural, which causes spinal fluid to seep out and cause headaches.

Why haven't you heard of SPGB before?

The first mention of the procedure dates back to as early as the 1900s, but it wasn't always a popular or comfortable procedure. It was typically used as needed and as a one-time treatment, not as part of a treatment plan as it is today.

How is a SPGB procedure done?

A soft tube specifically designed for an SPGB is gently inserted into the patient’s nose as they lie on their back. This helps deliver the medication precisely and consistently to the area of the SPG.

What are the risks, and what are the outcomes?

As with any local anesthetic you may experience temporary numbness or tingling for several hours. If you are allergic to certain types of anesthesia you may not be a good candidate. There are no needles involved or puncturing of your nasal cavity so risks and complications are extremely rare. I may take several procedures to achieve the desired result. You may experience relief from your headache condition for weeks or months at a time. In some cases the relief is felt immediately. The procedure is minimally invasive with little to no discomfort.

When you come to Vitality Integrative Wellness for headache treatment, we may also recommend other functional medicine and integrative medicine treatments to reduce other variables that can cause headaches, such as stress or injury to the cervical spine.

Are there non-medication therapies for headaches?

Headaches are complex conditions with underlying causes that often require more than just medication for treatment. As a result, there are plenty of non-medication therapies that could be used to treat your headache disorder. To treat that root cause, your healthcare professional must spend time diagnosing it and not just prescribing painkillers.

This is why functional medicine is such an excellent approach for people suffering from headache disorders. It requires us to take a holistic approach and truly identify and treat the underlying factors. We'll take a deep dive into your medical history, diet, lifestyle, stressors, and environmental factors. By addressing these root causes of your condition, functional medicine aims to not only alleviate but also prevent painful headaches.

Treating Underlying Causes with Non-Medication Therapies for Headaches

Discover Non-Medication Therapies for Headaches

Some non-medication therapies that may be recommended include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, spinal decompression, biofeedback, and cognitive behavioral therapy. These alternative therapies may be effective in managing headaches, but it depends on the type of headaches you're experiencing and the underlying cause.

Underlying Causes of Headache Conditions

Muscle tension, vascular (blood circulation) issues, or a combination of both are frequently the leading causes of headaches. Other causes may be lifestyle-related, such as dehydration, a nutrient-deficient diet, or sleep deprivation.

Vascular Issues and Headaches

Migraines and cluster headaches are vascular-type headache disorders. The exact cause of migraines isn't exactly clear, but researchers understand that when blood vessels dilate or swell, it can contribute to a headache disorder. This constriction of your blood vessels can also trigger your brain to release chemicals that could also contribute to the severity of your migraine or tension headache.

A healthy diet that is low in saturated fats can help control vascular disorders but cannot reverse them entirely. To develop a care plan, we order diagnostic testing to determine which nutrients your body lacks. Your natural headache and migraine therapy plan will include diet, supplements, and suggestions for lifestyle changes that could help your vascular headache disorder. If you smoke, quitting might be another helpful lifestyle change for people with vascular disease or other issues.

Muscle Tension and Headaches

Headaches caused by muscle tension can develop due to musculoskeletal issues like spinal misalignment resulting from poor posture or injury. They can also be linked to whiplash-related or sports-related cervical injuries. Whether or not medication is also necessary, long-term remission of each of these conditions requires a certain amount of non-medication therapy for headaches.

Non-medication treatments for muscle tension may include:

Chiropractic Care:

Pinched nerves in the neck are common causes of headaches. By adjusting the spine's vertebrae, chiropractic care alleviates pain and inflammation by removing pressure from the affected nerves.

Massage therapy:

Massage therapies like trigger point (areas associated with headache pain) therapy, manual lymphatic drainage, or therapeutic massages focused on the neck and head muscles can help reduce the duration of headaches. One possible benefit of massage therapy for headaches is that it can decrease activity at trigger points, which can increase blood flow and alleviate pain.

Spinal Decompression:

Headaches can often be symptomatic of spinal issues, particularly when misalignments or compressed nerves contribute to tension and pain. Spinal decompression therapy, a non-invasive procedure, aims to alleviate this pressure through targeted stretching and realignment of the spine.
By employing gentle traction techniques, spinal decompression therapy aims to create negative pressure within the spinal discs. This allows for the retraction of herniated or bulging discs and the promotion of nutrient-rich fluids into affected areas.

Hot and Cold Therapy:

Hot and cold therapies are effective for alleviating headache pain, depending on personal preference. For many people with chronic migraines, cold therapy is often the most effective option, although results can vary from person to person. Warmer temperatures can boost blood flow to your brain, while cold therapy can reduce blood flow to your brain. While blood flow doesn't initiate a migraine, it may contribute to the severity of the headache. Figuring out which therapy is best for you could be an easy way for you to lessen the intensity and duration of a migraine or tension headache.

Other Causes of Headaches You Can Treat Without Medication

Dehydration:

Did you know 75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated? That means most of us are dehydrated for days, weeks, or even months. Dehydration is a common trigger for migraine headaches, so if you're chronically dehydrated and suffer from migraines on a regular or episodic basis, it could be related, and you need to drink more water. Make sure you also replenish lost electrolytes if you're an active person.

Psychological Stress:

Stress is a major contributor to both tension and migraine headaches. Non-medication treatments for stress may include cognitive behavioral therapy. Working with a certified CBT therapist trained in migraine management can help you learn relaxation techniques to deal with the pain and lessen the emotional toll that headaches have on you. They'll also teach you how to deal with stressful situations in your personal life and work environments, like assertive communication and how to set boundaries with pushy people who stress you out. Studies have shown that CBT therapy is one way you can lessen headache frequency without medication.

Poor sleep quality:

Studies have shown that less sleep means longer and more intense headaches. Why? While you sleep, your brain takes that time to repair itself, which regulates neural pathways. When you don't sleep enough, this causes decreased neural plasticity in the brain, which leads to depression, anxiety, and headaches. Establishing a consistent bedtime routine, creating a comfortable sleep environment, and practicing relaxation exercises before bed can all contribute to better quality sleep.

Can headaches be treated without medication? The answer is a resounding yes! By addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of stress and headaches, you can work towards managing your symptoms more effectively and improving your overall well-being.

Will this work for migraine headaches?

Migraine headaches are complex neurological conditions with many causes, and what works for one person may not work for another. That said, regular chiropractic care, spinal decompression, and functional medicine have been shown to offer relief to migraine sufferers. We’ve also helped patients successfully find relief from chronic and episodic migraines using a specific protocol called Sphenopalatine Ganglion that targets the SPG nerve bundle for immediate and effective pain relief.

Are results permanent?

This is a highly complex question. Assuming that you are consistent with treatments, then yes, the results are long-lasting. The treatments in our office are meant to fix the underlying root problem of a patient's pain so the pain does not come back, it is not like a steroid injection which is something that will wear off after a few weeks or months. That being said, nothing within your body can be considered permanent. Remember, our cells are constantly growing, changing, and dying. Life happens, and spontaneous injuries can occur, but by sticking to the personalized treatment plan, you can live a fulfilling life free of pain.

Does insurance cover this?

We will verify your insurance during your consultation. If you do not have insurance coverage, we have several financing options. Depending on the treatment plan created for you, some of, if not all of the modalities may be covered. We will always be upfront with the cost of treatment when we review your customized care plan.
