Most common conditions treated...

  • Migraines - with and without aura
    Migraine with auras cause you to experience visual disurbances alongside standard migraine symptoms. Migraines without aura, however, tend to consist of standard migraine symptoms, such as nausea, intense head pain, vomiting, and light or sound sensitivity. 

  • Tension Headache
    Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, causing mild, moderate, or intense pain in your neck, head, and behind your eyes. 

  • Post-concussion syndrome
    Post-concussion syndrome is a mild traumatic brain injury. This complex disorder can result in symptoms such as headaches and dizziness for weeks or months after a blow to the head. 

  • Menstrual or Hormonal Headache and Migraine
    These types of headaches are similar to regular migraine, which may or may not have an aura. They can also involve nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity. 

  • Abdominal Migraine
    This sub-type of migraine is commonly seen in children. Common symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. 

  • Hemiplegic Migraine
    Hemiplegic migraine is a rare form of migraine that causes temporary weakness, tingling, paralysis, and numbness, alongside standard migraine symptoms. 

  • Migraines from ingestants (food/drink)
    Migraines caused by food are reasonably common. Aged cheese, alcohol, chocolate, cured meats, and food preservatives can all lead to migraines in some people. 

  • Vestibular Migraine (vertigo)
    Vestibular migraine, or migraine-associated vertigo, causes dizziness in those who have a history of migraine symptoms. You may not always have a headache with this condition.
