Possible Treatments

Pharmacological Management

Headache treatments often involve medicines to reduce pain and to stop the headaches from happening. Mild to moderate headaches can often be addressed with

  • Analgesics
  • Anti-inflammatories

More severe headaches may require medicines used to ease or relieve nausea symptoms associated with the headaches such as anti-emetics, abortive therapies that constrict blood vessels in the brain such as triptans and daily prophylactic medicines which can prevent the headache from occurring.

Non-Pharmacological Management

Headaches can be treated in many ways that do not involve medicines. Some options include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Biofeedback
  • Exercise
  • Stress management
  • Acupuncture
  • Sleep management
  • Massage
