Headaches are a pain or discomfort that can be generalized or local affecting any part of the head. There are many causes of headaches, some originating from the head region itself, others are referred from the neck and upper back, as well as ophthalmologic origins. Hart Family Care works directly with you to discover the underlying pain causing your headaches and/or migraines.
Headaches are one of the most common complaints of those who come to visit a physician. Most causes of headaches are benign and have no underlying significant pathology, however, it is important to have a physician or pain specialist rule out more severe causes before beginning headache treatment for the benign causes.
Headaches can be classified as either “primary” or “secondary.” Primary just means that it isn’t caused by any underlying disease or pathogen. After being classified as benign or primary, headaches can then be classified as Cluster, Tension, or even Migraine headaches.
