Headache Q & A

What causes headaches?

Many factors contribute to headaches ranging from stress and dehydration to serious medical conditions such as high blood pressure. Headaches are classified as either primary or secondary, which means they either develop as independent illnesses or as a symptom of another condition.

Migraines, tension headaches, and cluster headaches are primary headaches. Common causes of these painful conditions include:

  • Certain foods such as processed meats
  • Alcohol
  • Dehydration
  • Stress
  • Poor posture
  • Hunger

A wide range of medical conditions causes secondary headaches. Some of the common conditions that cause headaches include:

  • Anxiety and panic disorder
  • Sinus and ear infections
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Concussion and post-concussion syndrome
  • High blood pressure

You can usually treat an occasional headache with water, rest, and over-the-counter painkillers. However, if you have chronic headaches, the team at Rise Wellness Centers can help you find lasting relief.


How are headaches treated?

At Rise Wellness Centers, the doctors put your wellness first. They offer thorough consultations and exams to develop an understanding of your headaches before creating a customized treatment plan to relieve your symptoms and restore your wellness.

In many cases, ketamine infusion therapy provides rapid relief for chronic headaches, both reducing the severity of your symptoms and the frequency of your headaches. Many patients have reported their headaches have been eliminated.

Ketamine infusion therapy delivers a power medication directly to your bloodstream. It works with your brain chemistry to reset the NMDA receptors in your brain which regulate your mood and mental health and also help your brain interpret pain signals.


What should I expect during ketamine infusion therapy?

Your doctor creates a specific treatment plan to address your particular symptoms and needs. In most cases, you have an initial series of ketamine infusions. Your doctor supervises your infusions and monitors your progress throughout your treatment, adjusting your treatment as needed.

Ketamine infusions are relaxing and therapeutic. You relax in a comfortable chair while the medication is delivered through an IV drip. Many patients report a floating or tingling sensation during their infusion that subsides soon after the treatment is complete.
