Headaches

70% of all headaches are referred from the neck (Cervicogenic ). In our practice we are highly specialized in the neck and therefore have success with treating headaches.

There are many different types and causes of headaches; migraines, tension and cluster to name a few. But perhaps the most common and misdiagnosed is the cervicogenic headache, which often mimics migraines. This type of headache arises from a misalignment in the cervical spine.  Some common causes of this can range from repetitive motions, poor posture, sleeping awkward, or more seriously trauma from a slip or fall. 

Common symptoms of a cervicogenic headache may or may not include:

  • a reduced range of motion in the neck.
  • pain on one side of the face or head.
  • pain and stiffness at base of head or neck
  • pain around or behind the eyes.
  • pain in the neck, shoulder, or arm on one side.
  • head pain that is triggered by certain neck movements or positions.

In our practice we are highly specialized and trained in the proper biomechanics of the cervical spine. Therefore we have great success in the treatment of headaches. 

At 12 Years Old, I Thought The Headaches Were Never Going Away!

Hi my name is Joe Perez and I am 12 years old. I have had headaches 2 to 3 time a week since I was 6 years old. They were so bad I would get sick from it. I was told I had migraine headaches and sinus problems. I even had my tonsils removed. I thought the headaches would never go away. Then my mom took me to see Dr. Lope and that is when I felt better. I can't even remember the last time I got a headache. Dr. Lope took x-rays and studied my neck. I told him when I was little I tried doing a flip on my trampoline and landed on my head. He said that was probably why my neck was giving me headaches but he could make me feel better. I am really grateful I met him.

No One Else But Drs. Lope and Candino Were Able To Help Me

Hi. My name is Alex Boshnick and I am a 12 years old. I want to thank Doctors Lope and Candino for everything they have done for me. I want people to hear my story so they can have hope of one day feeling free of pain like me.  I came to see Doctors Candino and Lope about a year ago. I was suffering from back and neck pain, migraines and was previously been diagnosed with scoliosis and Lumbar Schuermann's kyphosis. I wore a back brace for close to a year. My mom took me from doctor to doctor trying to have someone address the pain I was in. I had X-rays, mri's, and bone scans, all of which showed nothing other than scoliosis which would sometimes show up and sometimes not. Either way, I was still in pain. I couldn't walk four long periods of time, I couldn't stand o sit for long periods of time. I was constantly uncomfortable and unable to enjoy everyday things that people take for granted. Upon seeing Doctors Lope and Candino they took x-rays and did an overall assessment and found out that the bones in my neck were out of place, my posture was off, my feet turned in and I was basically a mess. However, they felt my scoliosis was not a proper diagnosis and that my neck pain was due to an old injury. It turned out that I suffered a concussion back when I was 7. I had a cat scan at the emergency room but they never looked at my neck only my head. Doctors Lope and Candino knew that they could help me. At every visit they made me feel comfortable. They got to know mew and my family and took their time while adjusting me to make sure I was okay. They developed a home program for me to ensure that I continued to progress, The results are amazing! I can walk through the mall and go on vacation with my family without having to stop, stretch, and sit down. My posture has improved. I no longer sit on my knees and wiggle around and want to jump out of my skin. Amazingly, I just joined the track team and can run around the track 8 times. In my wildest dreams I never thought this would be me. Doctors Lope and Candino worked on me literally from head to toe and I can't thank them enough.
