Headaches are a common problem that for some can be a debilitating condition that makes daily life challenging. At Dignity Health Medical Foundation — Woodland and Davis, headaches are treated as a neurological issue. We help you recognize the symptoms, find the cause and treat the pain.
Common headaches are generally caused by one of two things:
About 9 in 10 headaches are harmless episodes that can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers. Alone or together with the support of rest, ice packs or relaxation techniques, common headaches are often easily treated.
For more severe or ongoing pain, such as a migraine, it may be beneficial to seek the help of a neurologist. Headaches differ from person to person, and can be approached from a variety of angles. At Dignity Health Medical Foundation — Woodland and Davis, physicians begin with a thorough assessment of factors that may provide clues to headache triggers including lifestyle, environmental and emotional considerations.
From the information gathered, treatment strategies are developed to avoid these triggers and stop headaches before they start, toward the ultimate goal of relief from chronic headache suffering.
