Healthcommunities.com, Inc., announces the recent addition of a New Headache Treatments section to its consumer health information website, neurologychannel.com. This newly updated section features important information about pain medications and treatment methods that are being developed for people who suffer with tension headache, cluster headache, migraine, and other types of chronic or recurrent headaches.
Northhampton, Mass. (Vocus) May 20, 2009 -- More than 45 million people in the United States experience chronic headaches. Healthcommunities.com, Inc., a privately-owned online publisher of physician-developed and -monitored health information, is pleased to announce recent updates to the comprehensive headache information found on neurologychannel.com, including the addition of a section focusing on new headache treatments.
Headache causes range from seasonal allergies, hay fever, and sinus pressure to colds and flu; from tension and stress to eye strain and caffeine withdrawal; and from head trauma to brain tumors and other medical conditions. “Headaches can have a significant impact on daily life, no matter what the cause,” says Stanley J. Swierzewski III, M.D., a practicing physician and the CEO and Founder of Healthcommunities.com. “New headache treatments can provide faster pain relief, cause fewer drug side effects, and decrease headache recurrence.”
In addition to finding comprehensive information about headaches, neurologychannel visitors also can share information about how to help relieve headache pain in the Living with Headache section and participate in a discussion about headaches and ask medical questions in the Headache Forum.
According to Dr. Swierzewski, “People who visit neurologychannel find trustworthy information about the most common types of headache, including tension headache; cluster headache; migraine; menstrual migraine, which affects women and is caused by hormonal changes associated with menstruation; and rebound headache, which can be caused by over-the-counter and prescription pain medications.” Headache treatments that are currently being developed include generic versions of approved drugs, innovative administration methods, such as inhalation devices and skin patches, additional medications, and new procedures and devices.
