What do you do in the headache treatment program?
Our approach will vary with the individual's needs but basically, there are a few main steps. First, establish a diagnosis (or diagnoses). We then begin to work with a person to determine what factors are causing the problem, what is worsening it and what we can do to make it better. This sounds quite simplistic but it is the approach that works best.
There is no "hocus-pocus" or secret medication. The most successful approach to headaches, and that covers more than 90% of so called "difficult" headache patients, is the careful and rational application of medications and other treatments that are known to be safe in conventional medical practice. We do not use experimental or unproven fad remedies.
