What are Headache Disorders?

Headaches are a common problem, but our experts recognize the seriousness and complexity of more serious headache disorders. We treat:

  • Migraine headaches without aura
  • Migraine headaches with aura (sensory disturbances, usually visual)
  • Cluster headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Other trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias such as paroxysmal hemicrania, hemicrania continua, and SUNCT and SUNA
  • Post-traumatic headaches
  • Post-concussive headaches
  • Chronic headaches (of any type or cause)
