Sinus Headaches are actually quite uncommon, contrary to prevous beliefs. 90% of people who believe they are experiencing sinus headaches are actually experiencing a Migraine or similar type of headache cause. Most of these people have normal CT or X-ray of their sinus cavity and are not experiencing an acute infection. If a patient has improvement with a decongestent or pain-reliever, then they are most likely not suffering from a sinus headache. Chiropractic Neurology will determine the true cause and refer to an otolaryngologist, neurologist or PCP for medication intervention when necessary.
