Dealing with a headache at any time can be frustrating, especially if it’s a regular occurrence for you. Chronic headaches and migraines plague millions of people worldwide, leaving them looking for answers and solutions that will simply make the throbbing go away. In addition to the pain that comes along with a headache, many people also experience sensitivity to light and sound, see flashes of light, and have blurred vision or vision loss.
Symptoms of Tension Headaches
Some of the most common symptoms of tension headaches are:
- Dull pain in the head
- Feeling of pressure in the forehead and sides of the head
- Tenderness in the head, neck, and shoulders
- Discomfort that lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to one week
While there are many different types and causes of headaches, tension headaches are among the most common, and most treatable with stem cell therapy. In many cases, stress is the underlying cause of tension headaches. When stress is present, the muscles of the scalp and neck can contract, resulting in one of the most bothersome headaches a person can have. If you have been diagnosed with tension headaches, or if you are tired of getting headaches on a regular basis and would like to discuss your symptoms with a doctor, please contact Texas Partners Healthcare Group today.
Stem Cell Therapy for Headaches
While over-the-counter medications often provide relief, they are not a long-term answer. In recent years, a lot of research has been done regarding stem cell therapy for neurological conditions and headaches. Whether you are dealing with bothersome headaches because of a neck injury, joint issue, or tension headache, stem cell therapy may be the answer you were looking for.
Stem cells work by taking on the characteristics and genetic codes of other, nearby cells. When the damaged cells begin to die, the new cells take over and start the process of regeneration, which is how the body heals. The more damaged cells that are removed, the greater chance healthier cells have of helping the body recover and function as it should. When it comes to treating tension headaches and migraines with stem cells, we will inject a high concentration of stem cells directly into the area in question. Once they are injected, they can start to interact right away with the surrounding tissue.
Because stem cells are derived from the patient, there are no chances of rejection or negative side effects. At Texas Partners Healthcare Group, we use a unique combination of stem cell therapy and PRP injections. This process will begin with diagnosing the exact source of the pain, as we believe pain is the body’s way of telling us there is tissue damage. Once we have diagnosed the exact location and source of your pain, we will use the patient’s own stem cell or PRP and inject it into that tissue. As the repair and regeneration process begins, the pain should improve and eventually subside altogether.
