Headache and Facial Pain
Our headache and facial pain clinic is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of headache disorders, facial pain syndrome and associated disorders.
Headaches are generally categorized as primary headaches, such as migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches; and secondary headaches, in which the headache is a symptom of another, underlying disorder.
Headaches are caused by particular nerves in muscles and blood vessels sending pain signals to the brain. Triggers that cause those nerves to activate can vary widely and are not always perceptible.
For patients who suffer from chronic headaches, with severe headaches occurring several days per week or more, we offer an effective treatment program, including botulinum toxin (Botox) treatment for acute, chronic and disabling headaches.
We provide consultation for diagnosis and management of migraine and cluster headaches, facial pain and facial nerve pain, post-traumatic headaches, idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH)–also known as ‘thunderclap headaches,’ spontaneous CSF hypotension and related conditions.
Facial pain is often very complex, with many interrelated causes as well as countless treatment options. Our multidisciplinary approach to headache and facial pain care provides an accurate diagnosis and individualized treatment strategies tailored to your unique situation, overall health and personal treatment preferences.
