Did you know?
The FDA approves the use of Botox to treat chronic migraine in adults who are age 18 or over. Botox is injected around pain fibers that are involved in headaches. Botox enters the nerve endings around where it is injected and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. This prevents activation of pain networks in the brain. Call Middletown Medical today to discuss your treatment plan options.

Who is the headache center for?

  • Weakness or numbness
  • Malaise
  • Difficulty speaking, difficulty for others to understand

What are the benefits and what will I learn?
At our Headache Clinic, patients learn how to modify their lifestyle and living environment to suppress migraine development. Uri Napchan, MD, director of the clinic, aims to empower patients by coaching them to:

  • Identify “triggers” that may initiate the onset of a migraine headache
  • Learn activities and behaviors that reduce their risk of experiencing a migraine
  • Anticipate an episode in time for prevention
  • Adopt coping methods for pain reduction when a migraine does occur

An expert in migraine care, Dr. Napchan conducts evaluations to determine the most appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan for each individual. He is an advocate for neuropreventative health education — teaching physical, mental, and social activities that help the brain protect itself against neurological disorders. Dr. Napchan’s individualized treatment plans may incorporate medication to supplement this approach.
