Injury Doctors NYC specializes in providing comprehensive care for individuals suffering from headaches. Our team of experienced medical professionals is dedicated to diagnosing the underlying cause of your headaches and implementing personalized treatment plans to effectively alleviate your symptoms. Below, we outline the common causes, diagnosis, and treatment options for headaches:

Common Causes of Headaches:

Tension Headaches: Often triggered by stress, anxiety, poor posture, or muscle tension in the neck and shoulders, tension headaches cause a dull, squeezing pain on both sides of the head.

Migraines: A neurological condition characterized by recurrent episodes of severe headache pain, often accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and visual disturbances.

Cluster Headaches: Intense headaches that occur in clusters or cycles, typically causing severe pain around one eye or temple, along with symptoms such as redness, tearing, and nasal congestion on the affected side.

Sinus Headaches: Caused by inflammation or infection of the sinuses, sinus headaches result in pressure and pain in the forehead, cheeks, or around the eyes, often worsened by bending forward or lying down.

Cervicogenic Headaches:Headaches originating from the neck or cervical spine, commonly due to issues such as whiplash injuries, cervical disc herniation, or poor posture, leading to referred pain in the head and neck region.


When you visit Injury Doctors NYC for headache evaluation, our skilled physicians will conduct a thorough assessment, which may include:

Medical History Review: Gathering information about your headache symptoms, triggers, frequency, duration, and associated factors such as stress, sleep patterns, and dietary habits.

Physical Examination: Assessing neurological function, muscle tension, range of motion in the neck and shoulders, and signs of inflammation or tenderness.

Diagnostic Testing:Ordering imaging studies such as MRI or CT scans, as well as blood tests, to rule out underlying structural abnormalities, neurological conditions, or systemic disorders contributing to your headaches.

Treatment Options:

Based on the diagnosis, our team will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Treatment options may include:

Lifestyle Modifications: Implementing stress management techniques, improving sleep hygiene, maintaining hydration, and adopting a healthy diet to reduce headache triggers and promote overall well-being.

Medications: Prescribing over-the-counter or prescription medications such as analgesics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants, triptans, or preventive medications to alleviate headache pain, reduce inflammation, and prevent future episodes.

Trigger Point Injections: Administering injections of local anesthetics or corticosteroids into specific trigger points in the head, neck, or shoulders to relieve muscle tension and reduce headache frequency and severity.

Nerve Blocks: Performing nerve block procedures such as occipital nerve blocks or sphenopalatine ganglion blocks to block pain signals and provide temporary relief from chronic or severe headaches.

Physical Therapy: Engaging in targeted exercises, stretches, manual therapy techniques, and postural correction to improve neck and shoulder function, reduce muscle tension, and alleviate cervicogenic headaches.

Botox Injections: Offering botulinum toxin injections to relax overactive muscles, prevent migraines, and reduce the frequency and intensity of chronic migraine headaches.

At Injury Doctors NYC, our primary goal is to alleviate your headaches and improve your quality of life. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward effective headache relief.
