For patients suffering from chronic head and face pain, Advocate Christ Medical Center offers the latest diagnostic technologies and treatments. Our coordinated network of neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, pain management specialists, physical therapists and nurses can determine the best treatment plan for each patient, including lifestyle modifications.
A full range of diagnostic tests and techniques, ranging from 64-slice Computed Tomography (CT) scanners to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to lumbar punctures, help our physicians can determine the exact cause of a patient's headaches.
Patients have access to a variety of treatments, including pain-relieving medications and preventative medications. Physicians help patients recognize the signs of an oncoming migraine so that they can reduce their risk of actually experiencing a migraine.
