Treatment for Headaches in Austin

Headaches

Millions of Americans deal with headaches stemming from different causes each day. Headaches generally fall into two separate categories: tension headaches and migraines. Per research, up to 80 percent of Americans suffer from headaches, while approximately 13 percent of the population suffers from migraines. Migraines are the more severe of the two, often lasting for extended periods of time while resulting in nausea, sensitivity to light and other environmental factors. Tension headaches are shorter in duration and typically result from abnormalities in the neck, sinus inflammation, dehydration, and other causes. Regardless of the cause and classification of head pain, its effects can make everyday life quite difficult. The providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine take an integrative approach to treatment for headaches in Austin, helping patients find relief with multiple non-invasive modalities.
