Dr. Torphy is really great! I came to him desperate with horrible migraines and no solution. I tried so many meds with nothing working well. He assessed my headaches and got me better meds and now I have Botox approved which is helping so much! His team working tirelessly with my insurance to get it covered. Everyone in the office is awesome. I highlight reccomend

Frequently Asked Questions about headache remedies:

The phrase “cure a headache” can be misleading. There are many ways to alleviate the pain from one specific headache, and treatment options vary. If you’re seeking headache treatment for ongoing attacks, it’s best to meet with a headache specialist to determine the type of headache, your triggers and your ideal treatment option.

There are more than 150 types of headaches, according to the International Classification of Headache Disorders. The most common types likely to be impacting you, however, are tension headaches, migraine headaches and cluster headaches.

Meeting with a headache specialist is the best way to determine what type of headache is causing your symptoms. Attempting to self-diagnose any sort of chronic headaches could lead you to try headache remedies that actually worsen your symptoms.

You can! At the Chicago Headache Center and Research Institute, we’re offering telemedicine consultations so you can get the help you need even when your headaches make it too difficult or too painful to leave your home.

Don’t spend another day dimming the lights, and wondering when that horrible pain will go away. You have the power to get back living a comfortable, happy life.
