A Healthy Message from Northeastern Health System-Tahlequah Chief of Staff Dr. Brent Rotton.

More than 45 million Americans suffer from chronic, recurring headaches. Every year, doctors’ offices are flooded with visits triggered by headaches. June 2-8 has been declared National Headache Awareness Week in order to help people understand what makes their head ache, and how to get relief.

A migraine is a throbbing, one-sided pain that often causes nausea and keeps people from functioning in their work or personal life.  About 30 million Americans suffer from this treatable neuro-biological disorder. Yet, it is estimated that more than half of all people who have migraine headaches have never been diagnosed and are failing to take advantage of the relief that is available today.

Migraines aren’t the only kind of headache to disrupt daily routines.  Tension, sinus and a variety of other headaches can impact the overall quality of life. If you’re bothered by headaches, a headache log can help in identifying triggers that bring on headaches as well as pinpointing the location and type of pain. Even if prevention isn’t always possible, there are new products on the market that can bring relief from all kinds of headaches.

If you suffer from headaches that interfere with your ability to work or enjoy your daily life, the National Headache Foundation offers a list of 10 steps to take:

 

  • Seek help. Be a self-advocate. Migraines are a disease and deserve the same care and attention as any health problem.
  • Educate yourself about migraines so you will know how to best work with your doctor to manage your disease.
  • Visit a doctor specifically about your headaches. This lets your doctor know the problem is serious and not just an afterthought. If your primary care physician doesn’t treat migraines, search for a physician who does.
  • Prepare for your physician visit. Keep a headache diary showing when your headaches occurred, how long they lasted, the severity of the pain and any possible triggers. Document the impact on your life in terms of missed work or skipped social activities.
  • Have reasonable expectations for treatment. While migraines cannot be cured at this time, there are effective treatment plans available.
  • Be honest with the doctor treating your headache about any medications (prescription and over the counter) you take and other medical conditions you experience.
  • Focus on solutions. Be positive.
  • Ask for detailed instructions on taking medications, and follow them. Get documentation about how often and how to take prescribed medications.
  • Partner with your physician. Share communication as you follow the treatment plan.
  • Follow-up regularly with your physician. Typically, physicians may want you to pursue a treatment plan for about three months and then schedule a return appointment to evaluate the treatment’s effectiveness.

Headaches are legitimate biological disorders, not psychological conditions.  If headaches are serious and often enough to interfere with your life, it’s time to schedule a visit with your doctor.

NHS Awarded Wellness Grant

Photo Caption: Michelle Sinkler from Full Plate Living, presented a check to Northeastern Health System in recognition of the amazing outcomes seen during NHS’s 8-week wellness challenge. The funds will be used for future wellness programs. Pictured, from left, are: Phyllis Smith, NHS Human Resources Director, James Newman, NHS Nutritionist, and Sinkler. Forty Northeastern Health System employees participated in a wellness challenge thanks to a Fitness Activity Grant from Ardmore Institute of Health.   The forty employees divided into two teams of 20 to compete for the most activity minutes. The NHS teams scored higher than any other group who was participating in the Fitness Activity Grant, earning NHS an additional $2,400 in grant money to be used for future wellness initiatives. The eight-week challenge measured participants’ activity for no less than 10 minutes per session. The grant funds were applied to a Garmin or Fitbit for each participant allowing their tracked minutes to be uploaded to a tracking site. “The participants had fun challenging each other as well as trying to beat the other team,” said event organizer and Director of Human Resources, Phyllis Smith. Dr. Mary Moore, an NHS Emergency Department physician, was the top participant logging 11,516 activity minutes. Toni Kemp, NHS’s Employee Health Nurse, was second with 9,869 activity minutes. “My benefits are multiple,” said Laboratory Director, Clint Horn. “I am able to keep moving a lot longer than I could before starting the program. I can take the stairs without getting winded, I’m more alert, can stay at work longer and have more energy to play with my kids. I also got to know several... read more

NHS Art Sale Benefits Habitat 4 Humanity

Twenty-six Northeastern Health System (NHS) employees recent displayed their artistic abilities to benefit Habitat 4 Humanity (H4H). The two organizations partnered to hold a 5×5 Art Sale at NHS and raised more than $1,300 to help build House #24. The sale included 61 pieces, all 5×5 in dimension, in a variety of mediums. “One of the greatest benefits from this event is that NHS employees discovered the many artists in our midst.  There are several other NHS employee artists that did not participate this year who, upon seeing the show, indicated they would do something in the future,” said Susan Hamilton, NHS employee and H4H secretary and Chaplain.” “H4H ED, Linda Cheatham, has already received requests from supporters to do this again next year!  It would be wonderful to build on this year’s success and have this become an annual tradition.” All proceeds from the sale will be used to help build H4H’s “House #24,” which is expected to begin construction next spring. The administration, providers and staff at Northeastern Health System strive to provide convenient and affordable access to a full range of services, including many primary and specialty care services, and consider it a privilege to serve the community.

The award was given to hospital volunteers who exemplify the spirit of service and have a passion for the work they do for their organizations. Volunteers with Spirit winners bring something special to their local hospital auxiliaries by standing out from the rest in what they do, how they do it or why they do it. “Willy Wonka has nothing on Zoe Ann, who creatively fills the gift shop with candy and health aids,” said NHS Volunteer Coordinator, Ami Maddocks. “Her dedication to her volunteer job is a driving force behind gift shop sales. We are very blessed to have her on our team.” Share... read more
