Headache Disorders

Headache is a general term used to describe pain in the head, face, or neck. Most people will experience an occasional headache during their lifetime. But for some, headaches can be chronic and severe, making day-to-day activities difficult. 

Headaches are generally categorized into two types – primary headaches and secondary headaches.

Primary Headaches

Primary headaches are headaches that do not result from another medical condition. The most common types of primary headaches we treat include:

Secondary Headaches

Secondary headaches are less common than primary headaches and typically start out of nowhere and are excruciating. They are caused by other underlying conditions that triggers pain-sensitive areas in the neck and head, including sinus problems, hormone imbalances, injury, or more severe conditions such as aneurysm, or tumor.

Common secondary headaches we treat include:

Correctly identifying a secondary headache as a symptom of a potentially life-threatening condition is critical. The Rochester Regional Health Headache & Facial Pain Program offers expert care in treating secondary headaches.

Facial Pain Disorders

Facial pain is pain felt in any part of the face, including the mouth and eyes. Although it’s normally due to an injury or a headache, facial pain can also arise as a result of problems in the nervous system, or as referred pain that arises from conditions elsewhere in the body but is felt in the head or mouth. 

The most common types of facial pain we treat include:
