“Sinus Headaches” mean a lot of things to different people. Most patients refer to any facial pain or pressure as a sinus headache. In their truest definition sinus headaches are headaches or facial pain/pressure brought on by changes in barometric pressure. There are many things that can cause facial pressure and pain that are not sinus related. These include migraines, cervical neck problems, and TMD or temporo-mandibular disorders.
Dr. Atkins has been treating sinus headaches since 1991. Over the years he has developed a very successful program for the diagnosis and treatment of sinus headaches. The key to the treatment is considering all the possible causes of facial pain/pressure.
