Headache is a complex illness, with experts differentiating more than 150 types of headaches. These can be put into two main categories: primary and secondary headaches. In the primary category the headache itself is the illness, such as migraine, while the secondary headache appears as a symptom (with high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism, etc.).
Pain that appears frequently and with increasing strength can significantly reduce the ability to work and the quality of life. For this very reason, expert help is indispensible when treating headache. There are many good medications available that can reduce or even eliminate the pain, but few people are aware that pain killers when taken long-term can themselves begin to cause headaches. So the method of dealing with the pain does matter.
Rózsakert Medical Center’s Internal Medicine specialist, Dr. Eszter Bodnár , was trained at Dent Neurologic Institute in Buffalo, one of the largest headache centers in the United States by Dr. László Mechtler, who is known throughout America as a headache expert, and is Chief of the Department of Neuro-Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, (this was the first hospital in the world to use chemotherapy). 6000 patients visit the center each year, the majority of whom couldn’t be helped by other doctors. There, Dr. Eszter Bodnár encountered a completely new approach to headaches, learned the method, and now is very successful in helping people who struggle with headaches.
Therapy for headache is very complex and customized, and generally requires the cooperation of several specialists (internist, neurologist, psychiatrist, massage therapist, musculoskeletal therapist, etc.), which are all available in our office.
