How did it happen?

According to science “pain you feel during a headache comes from a mix of signals between your brain, blood vessels, and nearby nerves. Specific nerves in your blood vessels and head muscles switch on and send pain signals to your brain.” Pain is a signal from your body, telling you that there is an issue that needs to be addressed.

Depending on the type of headache, there are various causes or triggers that can cause or elicit a headache. With the proper diagnosis and assessment of factors in an individual’s life that may be contributing to headaches, we can determine the cause and treatment to better help alleviate headaches and prevent them from happening altogether.
