June is National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month. For those who suffer, it is time to address the pain head on.
Migraine affects 40 million people in the United States and 1 billion people worldwide, according to the National Headache Foundation. About 400,000 Americans experience cluster headaches, the foundation says.
The Headache Clinic of Community Healthcare System offers comprehensive solutions for chronic and acute migraines and headaches, including neurological conditions. The clinic provides collaborative treatment from specialists in neurology, physical therapy and pain medicine.
To help alleviate headache aggravators such as light and loud noise, our exam rooms offer dim lighting and soft, soothing music.
The team at Community Healthcare System treats a number of conditions, including tension and cluster headaches, and migraines with and without aura. Treatment options include trigger point injections, dry needling, CGRP receptor blocking, Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX) injections and Sphenopalatine Ganglion nerve block.
