Most of us have headaches from time to time, but if you have a headache more days than not you may be a “chronic headache” sufferer. It’s estimated that 3 to 4 percent of the U.S. population has chronic headaches. For the 40,000 or so chronic headache and migraine sufferers in the Louisville area, there is one place many are going for help. It’s part of Norton Neuroscience Institute’s Headache and Concussion Center. Get Healthy’s Jackie Hays talks with one patient who says the center has changed her life.
Dr. Plato says the Headache and Concussion Center employs a team of specialists, from social workers and therapists to neurologists and neurosurgeons, to help patients find relief from migraines and chronic headaches.
