What are Headaches and how can we help you?
A headache is a pain in any area of the head. There are several different types of headaches, and can appear on one or both sides of the head. The pain can be sharp, dull, or throbbing. The length of time a headache will last depends on the cause or type of headache you’re experiencing. You may experience tension headache, migraines, cluster headache, sinus headache, among others throughout your life.
Causes and Risk Factors
Many things can cause a headache including stress, genetics, illness and your environment. It is not known what causes migraines, but too much physical activity is one theory for migraines in adults.
