What We Treat
When pain emanates anywhere in the head, that’s considered a headache. The pain may:
- Become vicelike on the head
- Isolated in one section
- Occur on one or both sides of the brain
- Radiate across the head from one particular point
Headaches are broken down into two types: primary and secondary.
Primary headaches are the result of overactivity or issues with the structures in the brain that cause pain. They are not symptoms of an underlying issue. Types of primary headaches include migraines, tension headaches and cluster headaches.
Secondary headaches are the symptom of another condition that can cause pain in the head. There are numerous conditions that can have headaches as a symptom, including stroke, concussion, dehydration and flu. A brain tumor, aneurysm or middle-ear infection may also prove a root cause.

- Pain relieving medication
