Headaches - A Common Senior Affliction

- Friday, June 18, 2010

Are you (or a loved one) suffering from recurring headaches? Don't ignore it!  This is something to discuss immediately with your doctor and our licensed Health Professional Support Staff!  Often, there is a logical explanation and simple corrective action for you to take.  Here are three common contributors to recurring headaches:

1) Dehydration-it's hot now, so drink up. 

2) Poor Lighting - Reading by poor light will strain the eyes and can cause headaches.

3) Deteriorating Vision:  Reading with improper correction causes eye and brain strain.  Have your eyes checked once a year to minimize this threat.  In some cases,  multiple annual exams might be necessary.  Again, talk to your health care professional periodically about the health of your vision.
