A migraine clinic, or headache clinic as they're called is a good choice for stubborn migraines.
If one has exhaused their options with their local doctors, and aren't receiving any help, then it's time to look at headache clinics for help.
And that might not be close to home because a few states have none. We travel about two hundred and fifty miles to one. It's not at a hospital. It's a good headache clinic that only sees one if no one else has helped. A hospital is only a few miles away in case surgery is needed to help.Two good headache clinics are the Mayo clinic, or the headache hospital in Michigan. That's two good ones. But a good migraine clinic doesn't have to be at a hospital.
Have you just been diagnosed with migraines or suffered with the pain for years with no help? Is your primary doctor treating your headaches? Or have you been to several local doctors that treat migraines, and still no help?
One should remember that there are thousands of neurologists around, and they will treat headaches. But do they have the expertise when it comes to some types of headaches. Headache specialists are also neurologists, but all they treat is headache patients.
You can have different types of headaches, and quite a few types of migraines. This is where a migraine clinic prevails on treating headaches. For example my wife's headache specialist in five minutes explained more than several of her other doctors put together.
It's such a fine line between types of migraines, and a doctor can easily make a wrong diagnose, and maybe be giving the wrong treatment.
But several types of migraines, and headaches are treated with some of the same preventives so all still could be well, and doctors know this.
Sometimes a doctor will give a preventive, and if that doesn't work he will prescribe a pain medicine for the migraines. The bottle may read something like this.Take as needed for pain.(been there, and saw this),then the head after a time gets worse. No good headache specialist will do that.
Many headache clinics straighten migraines out that have been mistreated. Migraine headache clinics have the latest treatments to apply to an individuals type of headache. Other doctors don't. Headache clinics offer invasive surgery for some migraine sufferers that fail to respond to traditional methods of treatments.
Migraine headache clinics will recognize chronic daily migraine that comes from the overuse of some prescription drugs that have been prescribed by other doctors that weren't qualified to treat headaches. Many times just adjustments in ones medicine can give migraine relief. So you have to have the best migraine clinic there is.
This is just an example below of someone that wouldn't have had help if they hadn't found a headache clinic.
I read a woman's blog one night, and she said she had a neurostimulator implanted, and she had a new lease on life. The chronic pain in her head was controlled by the stimulator. And this is just one of several methods for headache treatment. Your headaches may not need anything this drastic.

Here's what I found when I checked on headache clinics. And this bothered me enough to pass this to you. For instance, every hospital around thinks they should be added for the treatment of headaches"not so". I see some that are close to me that I would not go to for migraine treatment. If ones migraines are to the place that they want to find a migraine headache clinic, they have gotten to the place where they aren't responding to the tried methods of treatments. In the United States there're only somewhere around forty some headache clinics. That's not a lot.
