Migraines or Headaches
If you are suffering from frequent migraines or headaches, the cause may be simpler than you think. At Bakersfield Sinus Center, we offer treatment for migraines and headaches to help patients in and around Bakersfield and Porterville, CA, achieve lasting relief.
What Are Migraines and Headaches?
Migraines and headaches are conditions that cause pain, aching, and related symptoms in the head. Migraines and headaches can have a range of symptoms depending on the cause and the specific area of the head that is affected.
Although headaches can be brief, acute conditions with any number of causes, recurring or frequent headaches are often linked to one primary cause. At Bakersfield Sinus Center, our goal is to diagnose the cause of your migraines or headaches so that we can provide you with an effective treatment that will bring quick relief.
How Are Headaches and Migraines Diagnosed?
Since headaches and migraines can have a myriad of causes, the process of diagnosing their cause can be lengthy. However, the symptoms of headaches and migraines are unmistakable. If you are experiencing frequent or severe headaches and migraines, you may need to seek treatment.
While there are many possible causes of headaches and migraines, our team at Bakersfield Sinus Center specializes in treating those that are caused by the sinuses. Since the sinuses cover a large area of the face and head, the buildup of fluids and other conditions in the sinuses can often be responsible for producing recurring or long-lasting headaches and migraines. When you visit our office, we assess your symptoms and perform an examination to determine the source of your migraines and headaches. Once we determine the primary cause, we can recommend a treatment that will work for you.
How Are Migraines and Headaches Treated?
The treatment of your migraines and headaches will depend on your diagnosis. For mild cases that are not recurring or severe, we may simply recommend medications or at-home remedies.
If you are experiencing migraines or headaches due to problems originating in the sinuses, we may recommend a more unique treatment. For example, if your sinuses are inflamed or you are experiencing a build up or blockage of fluids in the sinuses, we may recommend one of the following procedures:
Can Migraines and Headaches Be Completely Cured?
At Bakersfield Sinus Center, our goal is to help you achieve an improved quality of life by providing long-term relief from migraines and headaches. However, the cause of your migraines and headaches will determine the extent and duration of the results you are able to achieve.
If your migraines and headaches are caused by issues related to the sinuses, one of our sinus treatments should be able to produce quick and permanent relief. However, it is important to note that these treatments cannot prevent the responsible conditions for developing in the sinuses in the future. Fortunately, if your treatment is successful the first time, you can expect it to be successful in the future should you ever develop migraines and headaches again.
