Headache Clinic For Referring Physicians
Headache Clinic For Referring Physicians

Goal of Clinic

The goal of the Comprehensive Headache Clinic is to use an interdisciplinary approach to improve headaches and associated disability in youth ages 5-18 with refractory and/or disabling headache conditions.  Moderate to severe functional disability involves significantly reduced participation in normal social, academic, and physical activities for that age and/or concerning mood and behavior changes. Our clinic uses an interdisciplinary approach involving neurology, psychology, social work, massage therapy, nursing, and other allied health professionals to evaluate and treat each patient.

Clinic Hours and Location

Our clinic is housed within Integrative Pain Management and is located in the Diagnostic and Treatment Center building.  Our clinic hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays and 12-5 p.m. on Thursdays.
