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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
