Most Common Headache


Tension Headache

About 90% of the headaches out there are tension headaches.  Tension headaches are usually caused by the contracting of the layer of muscle around your skull (Upper cervical), which in turn can decrease blood flow to your head.  That's why you'll feel a band of pressure around your head, and that steady pain typical in tension headaches.

Migraine Headache 

Migraine is not just a bad headache.  In fact, some people get migraine without any headache at all!  The cause of migraine is still a mystery.  The research to date seems to indicate that migraine headache is a neurological disease based on an inherited genetic abnormality.
A cause of migraine symptoms is usually called a "trigger".  A trigger is what starts the chain reaction, usually leading to migraine headaches.  If you've heard much about migraine, you may have heard about various things that happen to the body - serotonin levels (is an organic compound that is a chemical messenger known as a neurotransmitter) changes in blood vessels - a variety of things happen that cause those terrible symptoms, such as nausea and headache.   

Serotonin: In the human body, about 90% is found in the intestine, and 10% in blood platlets in the brain. The levels of this neurotransmitter in the body, too much or too little, have been linked to a number of disorders. These include depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), bulimia, alcoholism, cluster headache and migraine. It seems to influence mood and libido. It has an impact on blood vessel constriction. 

Sinus headache

A sinus headache, happens when you get an infection or your sinuses become inflamed.  You usually have other symptoms such as congestion, fever and fatigue. (Migraine is often misdiagnosed as sinus headache

Cluster headache

Clusters are another different type of headache that may not always be a headache. Rarer than migraine, and more painful, clusters usually attack men.  The cause of clusters is also somewhat of a mystery.  Now research, is giving us clues that may crack the cluster code and provide relief.  Cluster headaches may be related to the sinuses, the nervous system, and serotonin.   

Other headache:
There are many more reasons why you may have a headache, and many different symptoms.  Do you get a headache after you exercise?  Are your headaches caused by allergies?  What about an ice cream headache, a thunderclap headache, or getting a headache along with a bloody nose?

    I fought with back pain for long time before going to see Dr. A. Now, as soon as I feel stiffness, or any singe- which isn't very often- I get an appointment to see my chiropractor. Thank you, Dr. A"

  • ""Very courteous & respectful (unlike some doctors!)"

    I have been going to Mr.Abbas Khayami for almost 1 year now and I have no need to visit another chiro. Abbas takes care of everything and is very courteous, respectful and knows 100% what he is doing. Went to 4-5 chiros before him and I'm a customer for as long as he's in the valley. Thank you Abbas!"

  • "I arrived from South Africa and after 2 days of long, cramped air travel and a tedious 9 hour layover, my back and neck were in "bad shape". My daughter took me to see Dr. Abbas Khayami and I was pleasantly surprised at both the warm greeting I got as well as the avid attention to the description of my ailments. Dr. Khayami took the time to listen to me and was genuinely concerned about all aches and pains. He has a very professional and respectful manner and after just 1 treatment my pain disso"

  • "I had been experiencing lower back pain off and on for several years. It wasn't until I was in severe pain before I decided to visit a chiropractor. It was my first time at a chiropractor and so I did not know what to expect. Dr. Khayami was great. He patiently took the time to listen and talk to me about my pain. He explained what was causing the pain, recommended treatment, and even showed me some stretches to help stop the issue from recurring. After just one treatment I was feeling 100% bett"
