The Headache Center physicians are experts in diagnosing and treating headaches. Our physicians are not only members of the American Headache Society and the American Academy of Neurology, but are also certified as specialists in Headache Medicine. They conduct ongoing research on headache treatment. Patients who have sought care for headaches but have not found relief should not be discouraged. At The Headache Center, experienced neurologists take a comprehensive approach to headaches. Educating patients is important, because it allows for shared treatment decisions between patient and physician, with the goal of reaching a headache free state.
Types of Headaches
Headaches have a variety of causes. The most common types of headache are migraine (which are frequently disruptive) and tension-type headache. They can range from bothersome to disabling. Occasionally, they are caused by dangerous problems.
The treatments provided range from non-pharmaceutical approaches such as herbal remedies, physical therapy, exercise programs, dental splints to evidenced based pharmaceutical approaches such as Botox therapy as well as the latest treatments available through research protocols.
