Treatments for Headaches

Your Treatment Begins Here

Taking daily preventive measures is a practical approach to treating headaches. You may avoid known triggers or make lifestyle changes like avoiding caffeine. Yet, caution is wise. Overuse of short-term relief medicine (ibuprofen or Tylenol®) increases risks for a stroke or brain scarring, among other medical conditions. Seeing a doctor who specializes in headache causes turns the focus to long-term solutions.

Your treatment plan depends on your medical history with headaches and the type of headache you have (cluster, tension or migraine). Your headache specialist may prescribe medicine or suggest over-the-counter medicine to reduce the onset of symptoms or stop a headache in progress. Let us improve your headaches with our treatment options below.

Treatments We Provide

  • Deep Brain Stimulation

    Deep brain stimulation is a surgical device that sends electrical signals to the areas of the brain. It may help reduce your symptoms.

  • Preventive Medicine

    Preventive medicine may be prescribed by your doctor to take daily to reduce the onset of migraines.

  • Stress Management

    Whether it's exercise, counseling or another approach, reducing your stress levels may help headaches, especially tension headaches.
