It is estimated that 70% of the population experiences tension headaches regularly. We think thats way too high!
The most common kind of headache is called tension headache and is caused by muscle contraction.
At California Regnerative Clinic, Dr. Liu often meets with patients that are suffering from headaches that are experiencing:
- Aching pain behind the eyes
- Tenderness/Tightness in the neck and shoulders.
- Feelings of pressure /tightness across the forehead, behind the eyes, and the sides/backs of eyes
Headaches and migraines can occur at any time.
Migraines are a severe headache (usually limited to one side) that can be accompanied by nausea and increased sensitivity to sound/light.
Dr. Liu commonly treats those whose headaches/migraines are brought on or even made worse by:
- eye strain
- cold temperatures
- cold/flu/sinus infection
- bad posture
How can Dr. Liu help my migraines?
Dr. Liu will do a history and physical examination.
He then may use Intranasal Spenocath Lidocaine to help ease migranes in patients.
What is Intranasal Spenocath Lidocaine?
Intranasal Spenocath Lidocaine is a minimally invasive procedure and offers immediate relief for most patients with chronic and episodic migraine, cluster headache, chronic daily headache and for other facial pain and headache syndromes. The Spenocath device is a soft, flexible catheter that delivers pain-relieving medication inside the nasal passageway with maximum patient comfort. The procedure normally takes under 5 minutes.
