Evaluation, Diagnosis and Treatment of Headache
- Our patient centered approach: empower patients to help control their disease, avoid analgesic use, have resources to keep them at work and out of the ER
- Rule out of secondary causes of headache, offer the latest acute and preventive medications and combination treatment to optimize effect,
- Nerve blocks
- CGRP monoclonal antibodies
The goal of the Los Angeles Headache Center team is to make a diagnosis of your headache disorder and put in place the appropriate acute and preventive steps to control it. This is a process that may take several visits to fine tune. The treatments are typically used for the long-term and our hope is to build a patient-provider relationship with each individual that we care for. We do not use opiate analgesia to control headaches as there are many alternatives to this approach.
