Chronic Headaches: Symptoms, Causes and Treatment

Chronic headache

Chronic headache treatment is one of the many physical therapy services offered to the Las Cruces, NM community by Border Therapy Services. Chronic headaches are not like the normal headaches that many of us have experienced before. There are a variety of symptoms and causes that may lead you to seek chronic headache treatment.

Chronic headache treatment starts with recognizing the symptoms

Chronic headache treatment can only be helpful if you know when to seek it out. One of the ways that you’ll know it’s time for this sort of treatment is when you start to notice certain symptoms. The specific symptoms of chronic headaches vary from person to person, but the most common symptoms of this type of head pain may include:

  • Soreness in the neck, shoulder and/or upper back
  • Random stabbing pains in the neck
  • Unexplained nausea
  • Temporary vision impairment
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Severe fatigue
  • Sleep disruption

If you have been having frequent headaches over a long period of time with any of these symptoms, then you should act on this information immediately. These symptoms are a sign that it’s time for you to seek chronic headache treatment.

Common causes of chronic headaches

Even if you are able to recognize the symptoms and get help, chronic headache treatment is much more effective when you know what has caused your chronic headaches in the first place. There are many causes of chronic headaches, such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Untreated or improperly healed sports-related injuries
  • Poor posture
  • Unhealthy diet

By determining the cause behind your chronic headaches, pinpointing the areas of your body that are the likely source of your pain will be much easier. That means a physical therapist can more easily create a complete, personalized and much more effective treatment plan for you.
