Comprehensive Headache Treatment Center

Dr. Chappidi believes that good communication with his patients leads to proper diagnosis and effective treatment. The patient at the Comprehensive Headache Treatment Center, therefore, becomes an integral part of the whole treatment process.

"The more the patient
understands about his/her headaches
and the specific treatment prescribed,
the more effective the treatment can be."

- Prasad Chappidi, M.D.

Dr. Chappidi's treatment center utilizes a multi-faceted clinical approach including medication and biofeedback - the use of simple electronic monitoring device to translate body reactions into audio and visual signals. This technique, which is very successful in treating migraine headaches and headaches caused by muscle contractions, helps the patient to control his or her own reactions in order to help alleviate headache symptoms. The center also provides botox injections for chronic daily headaches.

Pain and rehabilitation specialists as well as physical therapists play an important role in the headache treatment process at the Treatment Center. Physical therapy is used to treat those headaches which originate in the muscles or joints of the neck.

All of the prescribed treatments rendered at the Comprehensive Headache Treatment Center are provided by highly specialized professionals working together with the patient toward one ultimate goal - the patient's well-being.

Dr. Chappidi talks with his patients
extensively before making
specific diagnoses.
