Relax, Reduce Pain, and Improve Your Quality of Life
The Migraine Clinic
Migraine headaches are one of the most common reasons that patients seek medical attention.
Avella’s Migraine Clinic was created to address the growing need for an integrated approach to migraine headache diagnosis and management in the community.
Avella’s Migraine Clinic offers patient-centered care that includes life style counselling, acute treatment strategies, preventative treatment strategies, discussion regarding hormonally-mediated headaches, if relevant, as well as diagnosis of medication overuse headaches.
The specific treatment strategy selected is individualized. Treatments may include medications, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), nutraceutical therapy, acupuncture, physiotherapy, and/or massage therapy.
Additionally, injections including onabotulinum toxin A injections (i.e. Botox), nerve block injections, CGRP monoclonal antibody injections, and trigger point injections may also be selected as a treatment strategy for migraine headache management. At Avella’s Migraine Clinic, both Botox injections and craniofacial nerve block injections are common treatment strategies for effective management of migraine headaches.
The goal of Avella’s Migraine Clinic is to provide a treatment plan that reduces pain and improves function and quality of life.
