Headache Solutions

Chicago Headache Center and Research Institute provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment of all types of headaches, including migraine, new daily persistent headache, post-traumatic headache, tension-type headache, cluster headache, and facial pain. We recommend a multidisciplinary approach to headache management, which often includes – in addition to medication – complementary modalities such as physical therapy, massage therapy, stress management, and nutritional counseling.

How It Works

Our evaluation of new patients involves a detailed history and neurologic evaluation, with additional workup such as specialized imaging or lab work as needed.

“It is indeed a privilege to work alongside patients in the journey toward improved function. I believe the physician-patient partnership is enhanced when the patient understands that the physician is truly listening to his or her concerns.”

We are seeing patients in our office as well as remotely via telemedicine.
