THE CITY MIGRAINE AND HEADACHE TREATMENT PROGRAM

If you suffer from headaches, you know the common symptoms all too well – sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, and pounding pain. The CITY Migraine and Headache Treatment Program is designed to cure headaches, facial pain, and head pain.  The treatment is made up of two parts:

  1. The first stage stops the reaction of the nervous system and alleviates the headache pain.  This is referred to as the medical component.
  2. The second stage treats the underlying condition, which is the physical component.

Combining these two components can effectively eliminate the conditions causing your headache or face pain, and provide long-term relief.

Step One: MEDICAL COMPONENT

CITY Health Services uses clinical testing to make sure you qualify for the treatment. Most patients qualify for the procedure and are treated during the first visit. The data collected helps identify headache triggers.

After the initial exam and free consultation, the CITY Health Services doctor will prepare you for the procedure to quickly alleviate your headache. The procedure targets a nerve cluster within the nasal cavity called the sphenopalatine ganglion. By using a specialized FDA cleared nasal applicator to deliver medication directly to this nerve cluster headache pain is nearly eliminated instantaneously. Many patients go from a pain rating of 8 to a pain rating of 2 in seconds.

Step Two: PHYSICAL COMPONENT

During the physical component of the treatment program, the diagnostic results will be evaluated to find biomechanical imbalances or other physiological conditions – commonly referred to as triggers – to be addressed for long-term headache pain relief.

Treatments could include – but are not limited to – physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, corrective ergonomic recommendations, cranial therapy, diet modifications, and stress management therapy.

GET LONG TERM RELIEF

Headache relief will be long term if the entire 4- to 6-week recommended treatment schedule is followed. While some patients sustain long-term headache relief after just one treatment, the chance of a recurring headache or face pain episodes is much greater if the physical component is ignored.  Those that have experienced chronic migraines or headaches for years may require additional treatments.
