Headache Treatment

If you or a loved one suffer from headaches, you’re not alone. More than half the population suffers a headache from time to time. Approximately 18 percent of the population suffers from migraines, one of the most severe forms of headaches.

If your symptoms are interfering with your daily activities, then it’s time to visit our Pain Clinic, one of the most comprehensive clinics in the country with a group of highly skilled doctors who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to treating pain and headaches. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the more difficult it becomes to treat pain. So don't wait any longer! The Nebraska Medicine Pain Clinic can help.

We Work Toward Relieving Your Headaches by Offering: 

An arsenal of weapons and expertise in battling your headaches

Although there is no cure for migraines and other forms of headaches, our experienced pain team uses the latest surgical techniques, therapies and medications to help reduce the frequency and intensity of them.

Special procedures to relieve headache pain

We use techniques ranging from electrical sensors to the elimination of certain foods to get your headaches to cease.

Other approaches we sometimes use include nerve blocks, bio feedback training, as well stress reduction techniques, such as increased exercise, deep-breathing techniques, massage therapy, temperature stimulation, acupuncture or a food elimination diet. For severe cases of migraines that don’t respond to abortive medications and occur more than 15 times a month, botulinum toxin therapy, otherwise known as Botox, may be considered. 

Specialists from a variety of disciplines

Our headache pain team coordinates with physical therapists, occupational therapists, surgeons, and those who specialize in psychological issues and massage, in order to provide you with the best diagnosis and treatment for your headache pain.

Personalized care from experts

Unlike many pain clinics which treat headaches, our doctors are all board certified in pain management, and most are fellowship trained as well. Our pain team will develop a personalized plan based on your age and medical history and other factors. No matter how severe your headaches, our experts have seen the complete range and are dedicated to finding a way to relieve your pain and prevent future attacks.

We've been helping people manage pain for 42 years through our program for those dealing with chronic pain issues
