Got Headache Pain? New Headache Clinic Offers the Latest in Therapies

Headache and facial pain can be a debilitating condition causing loss of work or school, loss of enjoyment of life and more. Migraines, the most common of the headache syndromes, affect between 12 percent and 14 percent of all Americans - 18 percent of all women and 7 percent of all men.

Others may suffer from more rare headache conditions or facial pain syndromes that require specialized treatment. The key to headache management lies in getting the right diagnosis and appropriate treatment, which can include therapies such as nerve blocks, botulinum toxin and modification of lifestyle, as well as treatment of related disorders such as insomnia, fibromyalgia, depression, and anxiety disorder.

The Porter Headache Clinic program includes physical therapy, pain management and psychiatry specifically focused on treating patients with debilitating headache disorders. The clinic is directed by Dr. Justin S. Moon, who is one of the few providers in Colorado to be subspecialty-trained and certified by the American Academy of Neurology in treating headache.
