The Headache Clinic at Bangkok Hospital offers diagnosis for several different headaches. With the help of advanced technology diagnosis is accurate and prompt to provide a platform for best treatment methods of various headaches.
- Usage of cocktail or several types of medicine to help alleviate symptoms of acute headache. This method is more effective than injection because it will help to reduce chances of any recurrences within 24 hours.
- Occipital nerve block or Botulinum toxin injection therapy
- Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: TMS is a noninvasive method used to stimulate small regions of the brain. During a TMS procedure, a magnetic field generator, or "coil" is placed near the head of the person receiving the treatment. The coil produces small electric currents in the region of the brain just under the coil via electromagnetic induction. The coil is connected to a pulse generator, or stimulator, that delivers electric current to the coil
- Biofeedback: Biofeedback and progressive muscles relaxation are the most widely accepted non-drug techniques for headache control and prevention. uses an instrument that monitors a bodily response, such as muscle tension or skin temperature, as the person tries to modify that response. For example, the monitor might give feedback with a tone that goes higher if the muscles in the forehead tighten and lower if the muscles relax. Another type of monitor uses a visual display such as a light that changes color as you increase or decrease temperature in your hands (or feet).
