The UW Health neurology program provides comprehensive treatment for headaches through its Headache Clinic at University Hospital.
About the Headache Clinic
At the UW Health Headache Clinic, our team provides care for patients with headache and facial pain. Conditions we diagnose and treat include:
- Migraine Headaches: Headaches are moderate to severe, often one-sided and throbbing. They can be associated with nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to lights and sounds.
- Tension headaches: Headaches are dull, mild to moderate and affect both sides of the head.
- Cluster headaches: Headaches are just on one side of the head. They are very severe and can occur up to eight times a day but last less than four hours.
- Trigeminal neuralgia: A facial pain condition that causes episodes of intense facial pain along the trigeminal nerve branches.
Treatment at the Headache Clinic may include:
- Injections including trigger point injections, nerve blocks and Botox®
