What Causes Headaches?
The causes of a headache vary greatly. Anything from a simple cold or toothache can cause a headache to something more serious, like a brain tumor or meningitis. Headache pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek a doctor’s help. Fortunately, 95% of headaches are not life-threatening and are considered benign. The majority are classified as tension headaches; the second most common type is a sinus headache.
Still, a headache is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Thankfully, we have answers for patients that are tired of taking medications just to be able to get to work or drop off their kids at school. As you may know, painkillers require increased dosage over time to have the same desired effect – wouldn’t you rather treat the source of the headaches so painkillers are no longer necessary?
