We start by reviewing your full headache and neurological history and what triggers your headaches or migraines. You will have a complete neurological exam, with a check of your weight, as well as blood pressure and pulse. Additional laboratory tests and ordering any pertinent scans, for instance, MRI or CT scans if there is any suspicion of underlying medical disease. Blood samples may be drawn, looking for signs of inflamed arteries or unsuspected disease of other organs.

We treat by :
1. Teaching you to eliminate trigger factors,
2. Stress reduction training,
3. Prescribing abortive (rescue) medications and,
4. Prescribing daily (prophylactic) medications.

We also treat with
Occipital Nerve Blocks and Botox Injections which have proven to be successful for many headache sufferers.
