HEADACHE TREATMENT IS CONSTANTLY EVOLVING
Our understanding of Headache Disorders—migraine, cluster headache, tension type headache, and others—is, like most medical fields, still an ongoing process. While we’ve made a lot of progress, there is still much left to learn.
As research and clinical study continues, existing treatments and therapies are constantly being made more effective, or phased out and replaced with newer, better options. At The Headache Center, we’re committed to staying on the cutting edge of headache research, and we’re passionate about pushing our corporations and legislators to continue to invest in much-needed research.
A QUICK NOTE ON CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES
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. Click each topic below to explore some of the various treatment options available for headache disorders through The Headache Center.
