Diagnostic Testing

A careful neurologic exam will help to assess variables in your condition.

Special scanning procedures are employed (see “Our Diagnostic Technology” page) to determine the status of your nervous system.

Careful analysis of your spine will help determine if a spinal condition is contributing to nerve irritation which can lead to migraine susceptibility.

Muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues are assessed.

Special testing may be considered (x-rays, MRI, etc.)

Report of Findings:

After all of the information is gathered, a written report of findings is prepared.

We often supplement this with brief videos explaining aspects of headache management.

The doctor will spend time explaining the results of your testing and if appropriate, offer a plan of treatment.

All questions are answered as they arise.
