What We Do

​The Headache Clinic at KNC specializes in headaches, head pain, and facial pain from a variety of conditions including migraine, trigeminal autonomic cephalgia like cluster headache, trigeminal neuralgia, headaches after concussion, headaches in the setting of medication overuse or treatment failure, and headaches in the setting of secondary causes such as stroke, surgery or brain tumours. A holistic approach including lifestyle counseling is used along with broad options including supplements, medications, and when applicable Botox. Patients whose family doctors are a part of the Seamless Care Optimizing the Patient Experience (SCOPE) initiative will also have access to an innovative part of the clinic where we work closely with your family doctor to optimize care.​


  • Often no tests are required in Primary headaches. See Choosing Wisely for more information.
  • If you have certain red flags, an MRI or CT may be ordered.
