Chronic Headache Program

Want to Help Seniors?

Please help us grow our network by volunteering for support groups.

This program is
designed to treat patients with tension, migraine, cluster or mixed types of
headaches.  Candidates include both those who have not had a satisfactory
response to standard medical and pharmacological treatment, and those who
need or wish to reduce their use of headache medications.

Prospective
patients need to have had a prior evaluation by a neurologist.  Our
treatment course is time-limited, typically 8-12 weeks.

This program
takes an interdisciplinary approach by providing a treatment team led by a
clinical psychologist and which also includes a physical therapist and a
nutritionist.  A staff physician is available for consultation, and the team
will work with a patients neurologist or primary care physician on
medically relevant issues.
