Headache Clinics

Headache clinics can evaluate and treat cluster headaches . If your headaches become more severe and medicines aren't working, your doctor may refer you to a headache clinic for more intensive treatment.

When you are looking for the right clinic, ask a few questions about the services provided-such as what types of specialists are at the clinic-so that you can find the clinic that is best for you.

Questions that may help you evaluate a headache clinic include:

  • How long has the clinic been operating?
  • What types of health professionals provide care?
  • What types of headache problems are treated?
  • What types of treatment are commonly used?
  • What are the clinic's success rates for treating the type of headache you have?
  • What is the clinic's philosophy of care and treatment?
