Did you know that children can also suffer from Migraine or other Headache Disorders? According to The Migraine Research Foundation, about 10% of school-age children suffer from Migraine, and often go undiagnosed due to their age. Migraine has even been reported in children as young as 18 months!
Headache Disorders can also appear later in life, or present with different symptoms as our bodies age. For example, more severe and more frequent Migraine attacks often result from the fluctuations in estrogen levels that accompany menopause.
Headache Disorders can affect people of any age, therefore The Headache Center welcomes patients of all ages and treats both adult and pediatric headache disorders.
Migraine is not the only headache condition treated at The Headache Center!
Other headache disorders diagnosed and treated at The Headache Center include (but are not limited to):
- Cluster Headache
- Exertion/Activity Headache
- High and Low Pressure Headaches
- Tension-Type Headache
- Hemicrania Continua
- Chronic Paroxysmal Hemicraina
- Chiari Malformation
- Trigeminal Neuralgia

As any headache sufferer knows, the actual headache itself is far from the only symptom. Common co-morbidities of headache disorders include:
- Sleep disorders
Only at The Headache Center will you get a holistic approach aimed at treating all the problems associated with headache disorders.
At The Headache Center, we treat each patient with compassion and empathy. Not just because that's our job, but because every single one of us either experiences a headache disorder or has a close family member who does.
We understand the suffering these disorders cause, and we are passionate about improving outcomes for our patients. We listen to you and we believe you. Your pain is real, and we can help.
Our staff works hard to educate and empower you to take control of your own health and headache condition. We are passionate about the power of education to improve outcomes for our patients.
This take a lot more time than a 5-minute office visit—initial assessment typically takes over an hour, while each subsequent appointment lasts at least 30 minutes—and it is reinforced at every follow-up visit.
The Headache Center does not provide controlled substances for headache disorders. All published literature on treating headaches with controlled substances shows significantly worse outcomes when treated with narcotics (opioids) and barbiturates. Instead, we stay on top of the most cutting-edge FDA-approved treatments such as botox, nerve blocks, nerve stimulation, oxygen therapy, and more.

A referral is not necessary to visit The Headache Center, and we do not operate with a long waiting list.
New patients can usually schedule an initial assessment within two weeks. We also provide same day urgent care for established patients.
