Managing Headache and Migraine Pain

The goal of Pain Management is to eventually stop the pain completely by making use of certain management techniques over time. Headaches and Migraines tend to be more complicated, so Dr Alison Richardson aims to reduce the severity, duration and frequency of the pain.

Treatment options for headache pain include:

  • Massage therapy
  • Botox injections
  • Acupuncture
  • Pain medication
  • Neurostimulation therapy

In order to establish a treatment plan, Dr Richardson will need to consult with the patient to determine which of these options will best suit them. Often, she uses a combination of these treatments to manage the pain.
