Need Headache Help?

Headaches and migraines are more than painful and inconvenient; they can hamper your productivity and dampen your mood. They literally can stop you in your tracks!  Knowing how to tell the difference between headaches and migraines can help you seek the correct treatment and get relief from your symptoms as quickly as possible.

Head pain, pressure, and throbbing are all common symptoms of headaches, although the location of these symptoms varies depending on the type of headache you have. Most people have had a headache at least once in their life. Often, they can be treated with over the counter medications with good relief, or addressing the cause.

IV Hydration Therapy for Migraines and Headaches

Our IV infusions have the vitamins, electrolytes, antioxidants, and hydrating fluids that your body needs to counteract your symptoms. IV therapy thoroughly hydrates you, restores your levels of electrolytes and vitamins when over the counter medications just aren’t enough.

In addition to these ingredients, we offer additional anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea medication for further relief from your symptoms if you are suffering from a migraine, a more debilitating type of headache.


Head pain, pressure, and throbbing are all common symptoms of headaches, although the location of these symptoms varies depending on the type of headache you have. Most people have had a headache at least once in their life.

There are three types of primary headaches, where an illness or other external factor is not the cause of symptoms.

  • Tension headaches: Often described as feeling like a tight band surrounding your head, tension headaches are caused by stress and – you guessed it – tension. Tension headaches can also manifest at the back of your head, in your neck, or even in your shoulders. If you think you might have a tension headache, take a break from what you are doing and try to relax to help ease your tightened muscles.

  • Sinus headaches: Sometimes called ‘allergy headaches’, this type manifests in your sinuses. You may experience pain or pressure behind your eyes, above your eyebrows, at the center of your forehead, or below your eyes. You can often, but not always, identify a sinus headache if these areas are tender when gently pressed. A warm compress can help ease sinus headaches, especially those that come with sinus infections.

  • Cluster headaches: A type of headache that generally manifests in a localized area, such as behind one eye or in a specific part of your head. Cluster headaches often happen in a series, one subsiding only to be replaced by another over a duration of minutes or hours. Some people may experience cluster headaches around the same time every day for a period of month. It is not yet certain what causes cluster headaches.

There are many types of secondary headaches, where an external factor or illness is casing symptoms. These types of headaches are linked to the cause. Below, we’ve listed several of the most common types, but this is not a comprehensive list:

  • Caffeine headaches: As the name suggests, caffeine headaches are directly related to your consumption of caffeine. You can get a caffeine headache either from ingesting too much caffeine or by suddenly stopping regular caffeine consumption. If you’re getting headaches from drinking too much caffeine, consider cutting back how many cups you drink per day. If your headaches stem from going cold turkey on caffeine, consider amending your approach to gradually remove caffeine from your routine.

  • Hypertension headaches: These headaches are caused by hypertension (high blood pressure), where the physical pressure in your veins contributes to your symptoms.

  • Dehydration headaches: This type of headache is caused when you have not ingested enough fluid. Because they do not have enough fluid to function optimally, your cells and veins shrink and pull away from the interior of your skull and can cause a dull or aching pain.

  • Hormone headaches: Some people may experience headaches that are related to changing hormones, especially during menopause, andropause, or pregnancy.

There are many more types of headaches, but these are the most commonly experienced types. Some people may experience episodic headaches, meaning that they happen every once in a while. Others may experience chronic headaches, which happen on a regular basis over an extended period of time.  If you have recurring headaches, our Certified Practitioners can guide you through care, prevention and treatment options.


Migraines are a type of headache. Pain, pressure, and throbbing are some of the symptoms that overlap with headaches. Migraines can be thought of as a severe form of headache. This type of headache may last for hours, a couple of days, and potentially weeks for some people. Severe migraines can impact your work, school, and social life by making it challenging – if not impossible – to meet the demands of your schedule.

Migraines are characterized by several symptoms that make them distinct from other types of headaches:

  • Severe pain on one side of your head

  • Sensitivity to light

  • Sensitivity to sound

  • Nausea

  • Vision changes (such as lights or bright spots)

For those that suffer from migraines, learning how to avoid triggers and prevent episodes is key!  Keeping a log and discovering triggers are the first step to controlling them! But sometimes, we know, despite your best efforts, a migraine can occur anyway!  Then what?

The pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound can disable you completely, preventing you from participating in your daily life for days or even weeks at a time. Or, expensive, long ER trips!

Thankfully, there is another option that have provided the answer that so many headache migraine sufferers have been desperately searching for fast, effective relief with IV hydration therapy.

What is IV Hydration Therapy for Migraines and Headaches?

However, if your symptoms are not new (for you) we can help!
