Care and Treatment of Headaches

Expertise

Managing headaches is not just a matter of finding the right medication. It requires proper diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan. Our team tailors a complete program for patients focused on prevention, rescue and lifestyle changes through medical care and physical therapy.

The Stanford Headache and Facial Pain Clinic treats all types of headaches including migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches, hypnic headaches and cluster headaches. We also offer recommendations for complementary medicine modalities, such as massage, cranio-sacralwork, stress management, biofeedback, yoga and nutritional counseling.

More than half of all migraine headaches are either misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. Stanford's Headache and Facial Pain Clinic can help correct this. With our leading headache experts and state of the art care, we are dedicated to helping you find relief from your pain.
