Types of headaches

There are over 150 different types of headaches and they are often very difficult to differentiate. Different types of headaches have different symptoms, they happen for different reasons and they need different treatments.

When we successfully determine exactly what type of headache we are dealing with, then we can successfully treat them. 

Some of the most common types of headaches are: 

  • Tension headaches - we'll talk more about them in the next section
  • Migraines - they are often described as a throbbing pain on one side of the head. They can last from 4 hours to 3 days and usually occur 1 to 4 times a month. In addition to pain, there are other symptoms such as sensitivity to light, sounds, and smells, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, and stomach pain.
  • Cluster headache - these are the most intense types of headaches in which intense burning or stabbing pain occurs around one eye. The pain can be so severe that most people with cluster headaches cannot sit still while the headaches persist. It also often awakens the patient at night. They usually occur in groups 1 to 3 times a day for a period of 2 weeks to 3 months. 
  • Sinus headache - with sinus headaches, you will feel a deep and constant pain in the cheekbones, in the forehead area, and on the tip of the nose. They occur in parallel with sinus inflammation. The pain usually comes with symptoms such as a runny nose, fullness in the ears, fever, and swollen face. 
  • Post-traumatic headaches - they usually start 2 to 3 days after a head injury, and their symptoms are dull pain that gets worse from time to time, dizziness, confusion, problems with concentration, memory problems, extreme fatigue, and irritability. These types of headaches can last up to several months.

Tension headache

Tension headache

Tension headache is one of the most common types of headaches that we often encounter in our clinic and which we successfully treat for our patients.

Tension headaches are manifested as dull pain, tightness, and pressure in the forehead, temple, and at the back of the head and neck. These types of headaches are often caused by a sedentary lifestyle and stress at work. 

2 types of tension headaches: 

  1. Episodic tension headaches - occur less than 15 days per month 
  2. Chronic tension headaches - occur more than 15 days per month 


The primary cause of tension headaches are extremely tense muscles of the cervical spine and suboccipital muscles. 

80% of people in the world will have a tension headache at some point in their lives. 


Diagnosis of tension headaches

The diagnosis of tension headaches is made primarily on the basis of a clinical examination by a doctor, physiotherapist, or another medical professional. 

A medical professional will ask you questions such as:

  • Where exactly does your head hurt? 
  • How does the pain feel?
  • When do you have headaches?
  • How long do they last?
  • Do you have headaches in your daily life?
  • Do you have trouble sleeping from headaches?
  • Are you under a lot of stress?
  • Have you had a head injury?
  • Have you noticed any changes in your personality or behavior?
Other tests may also be performed to rule out the existence of other medical problems, which are: 
  • blood tests 
  • CT 
  • X-ray
  • magnetic resonance imaging 
Diagnosis of headache.

Tension headache therapy

The goals of physical therapy in tension headaches are:

  • reduce / eliminate pain in the head, suboccipital area, and cervical spine
  • increase mobility of the cervical spine 
  • release the muscles of the suboccipital area and neck muscles 
  • increase the strength of the neck muscles 
  • establish optimal circulation flow in the neck and head area
Types of therapies we use and their effects: 
  • dry needling - quickly and effectively releases the muscles of the suboccipital area and cervical spine muscles, and consequently reduces pain and tension in the neck and head
  • chiropractic (manipulation) - we establish the optimal range of motion of the cervical spine and consequently release the neck and suboccipital muscles that cause headache 
  • mobility exercises - increase flexibility and mobility in the cervical spine and help us retain and enhance the effects of other therapies
  • strength exercises - establish the optimal strength of the cervical spine muscles so that the problem does not come back again 

Frequently asked questions about headaches:

The best way to find out what type of headache you have is to visit a medical professional who specializes in the aforementioned problem. 

In our clinic, we have solved a large number of tension-type headaches for our patients and you can contact us for examination and therapy.

Short answer: Yes!

Long answer: If you are disciplined with the therapies and exercises that the medical professional instructs you to do, tension headaches therapy is very effective and long-term solved. 

As a rule, no type of therapy we do for headaches in our clinic is painful. 

Dry needling can be moderately unpleasant but not painful. All other treatments are painless. 


Why our therapy?

Progress after the first treatment.

We work on quick and long-term solutions for the problem and after the first treatment you will feel improvement and relief of the symptoms.

Nakon 15 godina bolova u donjem dijelu ledja, ramena i lopatice, bolovi su nestali nakon nekoliko tretmana iglicama. Nevjerojatno je s kolikom boli se čovjek nauči živjeti 🙂 Sada je na meni da vježbama spriječim da se ukočenja ne vrate. Hvala, Toni!

Toni je izuzetan fizioterapeut čije stručno znanje i posvećenost zaslužuju priznanje. U svega nekoliko dolazaka uspješno je riješio probleme s ramenom, išijasom koji su me zezali duže vrijeme. Njegov pristup je nevjerojatno efikasan – brzo i precizno je dijagnosticirao probleme i pružio ciljano liječenje koje je rezultiralo iznimnim poboljšanjima. Toplo preporučujem njegove usluge svima koji traže stručnu pomoć i dugotrajna rješenja za svoje zdravstvene izazove.

Sve pohvale i zahvale Ad Sacrumu za fantastično odrađen posao. Ruka mi je bila otrnula sve do šake, što je ozbiljniji problem, i u samo jednom tretmanu smo riješili 90% bolesti, a već nakon drugog tretmana sam resetiran na novo zdravo stanje. Preporučam svima koji su u sličnim problemima da ne troše vrijeme i novac nego da riješe svoj problem momentalno kod maestra svog zanata Toni Marica.

I say responsibly that Tony is the best expert in this part of Europe. He solved a problem that I've been dragging for about 10 years, gave me advice not to get the problem back, and finally I don't have sciatica.Thanks, Tony!

All praise to physiotherapist Tony and manager Dino! Very well organized and professional. And most importantly, Tony quickly determined the cause of my daughter's pain and successfully eliminated it with the dry needling technique. Toni is a very professional physiotherapist who explains in a very simple way where the problem arose and how it will be solved. All recommendations!

I came to Tony on recommendation after an unbearable pain in the groin, knee and back. In three visits, he solved a torment that has been going on for months! Direct and professional approach, excellent diagnostics and most importantly, fast results! I am absolutely thrilled with the speed of recovery after the treatment, patched me up in no time!

Beyond all expectations! Dry needling is a miracle! There are no words to describe how grateful I am to Tony for ridding me of the unbearable and long-lasting headaches, which did not stop even with the help of pills. I came on the recommendation of a friend,honestly with little hope that it would really help me... Already after the first treatment I was without headaches,today I did the third and I am even sorry that now I do not have to come 😂 I feel perfect and happy. The big plus is that Toni,with her expertise, is extremely communicative and super person, so it wasn't even boring. I barely felt the needles, he is really a maher in his work,it can be seen that he knows the knowledge and does it with love!Highly recommended to everyone, you won't regret it!

There are few words to describe my experience with Tony and Ad sacrum.After a few months of severe pain caused by" false thinking " pain in the gluteus, pain in the groin, pain in the spine that went forward where I had trouble standing, walking and sleeping. The man was already on the first term without much philosophy to go to work. After a few visits, the pain disappeared.

There are few words to describe my experience with Tony and Ad Sacrum.After several months of severe pain caused by sciatica through the right leg, where I had problems getting up, sleeping and sitting to minimal pain, increased mobility and education itself what to do or not to do as I did not put myself in a similar situation. Great experiences "straight to the point" Education and application of Toni Marić's therapy.Recommendations to anyone who has orthopedic problems!

I thank Tony for his great music, professionalism and treatment 👍 😎 I am a squash player,coach and coach!It is a one-sided sport where the back,neck, etc... I had problems with the left side of my neck,back to the lumbar region... massage and chiropractic for 10 years helped,but in the short term and never until the end!!! For the first time in 10 years I feel that my back is great,that I am light,without pain and limited movement during rotations in the game and that nothing hurts after a tournament,and I was only on 4 therapies 💪 💪 💪

After years of pain in the lower back, I run into Tony and decide to go for treatment. After 2 sessions I feel like new, the tension and pain are completely gone. What impressed me the most was that he was a completely relaxed character, without much philosophy he explained everything “Lay” and did the most important thing.I would recommend to everyone

I came to Tony's for severe pain in the lower leg and it turned out that I had chronic soleus inflammation. My muscle was very cramped from running too much and it was giving me severe pain throughout my leg. Tony gave me 4 dry needling treatments and solved my leg. It feels great and I can finally gradually return to training. The man knows what he's doing.

My first encounter with needle therapy was extremely enjoyable. In a calm and relaxing environment, a professional and experienced therapist explained to me the principle of action and uses these techniques.The therapist carefully examined my health condition, listened to my concerns and desires, and adjusted the treatment to give me the best possible experience. This individualized care was incredibly effective and osnažujuća.Na finally, my problem was solved very quickly and I am extremely satisfied with his service:) my recommendation!
Jadranka AvdićJadranka Avdić
09:18 29 Mar 23 word that says it all. In 4 treatments, the pain and other symptoms that had accumulated over the years were removed. Toni really knows what he's doing. I can hardly find words of praise for this young man who, firstly, is very professional, and secondly, very kind and eloquent, so that he makes the treatment, which is a little uncomfortable, more pleasant, and shorter. In any case, for every recommendation!!! When it hurts again, I will go to Toni :).

I booked the first appointment based on a recommendation due to long-term problems with the lumbar region, cervical spine, migraines, tingling in the feet and sciatica in both legs. With the first treatment, we solved the inflammation and pain in the upper back and trapezius, for which I ended up in the emergency room before arriving. With the second treatment I no longer feel sciatica or tingling in my feet. My body is recovering phenomenally every day. I booked a third appointment, so long-term constant problems (12 years!!!) Toni solved in just 3 treatments. I am delighted with the approach and professionalism of physiotherapist Toni. It is not enough to say that I am grateful and sincerely recommend it from the bottom of my heart.
11:30 08 Dec 22
Extremely professional approach, excellent treatment with a noticeable difference after each treatment. Also very relaxed atmosphere, the best of two worlds can be said, I absolutely recommend to everyone!

I came with a problem of the cervical and lumbar spine (which lasts 15 years), tingling in the legs (as a consequence of sciatica), and injury of the ankle and Achilles tendon of the leg from a year ago. He solved all my problems with dry needling and chiropractic techniques. Tony is extremely accessible and explains everything he does in detail. Expertise, customer relationship, and communication are at a very high level. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has not been helped by conventional techniques.

I came to Tony through the recommendation of a handball player friend and I did not regret it. In several treatments, he solved the problem of a painful cervical spine and jaw that was painful to the movement and bite. The mobility of the jaw is very important to me because I'm in the singing business. The boyfriend also came with a problem with the cervical and lumbar spine, tingling in the legs, and injury to the wrist and tendon of the leg. He solved our problems with dry needling and chiropractic techniques. Toni is very approachable and everything he does he explains in detail, and also without hesitation you can ask him anything you want to know, so we let him in without fear. Business, expertise, customer relationship, and communication 5+.

After two dry needling treatments, my shoulder and neck loosened up, and the tension eased enough that after two months I finally have no headaches and no more dizziness. After the third dry needling treatment, the remaining pain on the right side, like muscle tension, has almost disappeared. I'm looking forward to the last treatment. Although it is known as a painful treatment, it was very tolerable for me, and it even seemed very relaxing. I am very glad that I found Toni on IG.

Physio Toni is a very pleasant, educated and humble young person, who knows his job without much mystification and philosophy "hits the head" and immediately goes to solve the problem as quickly as possible and more than successfully. In communication, he is also pleasant and measured, adapts to the patient and has wide knowledge and can talk to him about various topics, which makes the treatment even easier and leads to the feeling that the treatment lasts much shorter than it really does.So successful in my case that after 9 months of almost vegetating due to enormous pain, after the first treatment, I started walking at least 5 km a day, and after the second I started again working out! I can only recommend this young expert in his field and say a big thank you to him.
10:11 26 Sep 22
If I could give 100 stars, it would be small. It's actually hard for me to put together impressions and sentences and to fully express how grateful I am. What a relief after years of shoulder discomfort and inability to rotate, when you finally manage to rotate your shoulder all the way. No pain! Tony's expertise, knowledge, and love for his job are evident in his every sentence. The problem is approached directly, without BS, immediately tells what and how to expect. I had high expectations that he exceeded. Tony, thank you!
16:37 24 Jul 22
The man, without any philosophy, quickly and efficiently solved the problem of the lower spine, which had followed me for more than five years and which I thought would remain chronic. I recommend everyone to go and let Tony examine him and decide which solution is best. Tony, thank you again!

I'm gonna use the kids 'dictionary and say," I don't like dry needling!". With the recommendation of a friend who I talked to about the pain I was living with due to a messy life and long hours of computer work, I came to Tony for treatment. During the treatment, Tony eased my pain by talking and explaining. I went back for another treatment. Today I live without pain and I recommend Tony to everyone for his professionalism, expertise and human approach with respect to the client.
