What are the treatments for headaches?

Your personalized treatment for headaches depends on the type, severity, and cause of your condition. Your neurologist may recommend one or more of the following:

  • Medications

  • IV Therapy

  • Diet and exercise changes

  • Occipital nerve blocks

  • Stress reduction

  • Sleep changes

  • Botox injections

With Botox injections, your doctor injects medication into targeted areas of your head and neck, with the goal of substantially reducing the severity and frequency of your headaches. You may need repeat injections spaced apart over time to achieve long-lasting relief.
