Headache clinics can evaluate and treat cluster headaches. If your headaches become more severe and medicines aren't working, your doctor may refer you to a headache clinic for more intensive treatment.
When you are looking for the right clinic, ask a few questions about the services provided—such as what types of specialists are at the clinic—so that you can find the clinic that is best for you.
Questions that may help you evaluate a headache clinic include:
How long has the clinic been operating?
What types of health professionals provide care?
What types of headache problems are treated?
What types of treatment are commonly used?
What are the clinic's success rates for treating the type of headache you have?
What is the clinic's philosophy of care and treatment?
