What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Headaches?

In some cases, patients find that they rely less on their medications to manage their chronic headaches.

What Should I Expect After Treatment for Headaches?
The goal of treatment for your chronic headaches is to reduce how often you have pain, as well as the severity of the pain and secondary symptoms. This helps to restore a normal and healthy quality of life. You will need to continue working with your primary care physician to determine if there is an underlying condition that lends to your chronic headaches and migraines.
