Living with migraine or any other type of headache disorder can feel overwhelming, challenging and isolating. Many people are either undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or undertreated. That’s why one of the most important things you can add to your migraine treatment toolbox is a doctor educated in headache medicine and who has ongoing medical education in the field - someone who can help you navigate treatment options and develop a personalized treatment plan. A certified headache specialist is not necessarily the same as a doctor who just calls themself a "headache specialist" and for the 40 million people in the US with migraine, there are currently fewer than 1,000 doctors who have completed the necessary education to receive a UCNS and/or AQH certification in headache medicine.
A certified headache specialist can help you understand your specific type of migraine and work with you to improve your overall quality of life. They can also work with you to create a treatment plan that may help reduce the chance of your migraine attacks becoming more frequent or severe.
