Headaches and migraine cause mild to severe head pain that can last seconds to days. Associated symptoms are variable and may include sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, balance problems and dizziness. In some cases, vision, weakness and body sensation changes (“auras”) may occur before or during headaches.
Our approach to headache treatment is comprehensive focusing on medical and nonmedical strategies that incorporate our allied health team to include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, massage therapy, nutrition and more.
We offer general and specialized treatments that are individualized to the patient. To inquire about special treatments such as new injectable therapies, Botox or medical cannabis contact NCT today.
Headache & migraine is one of the most commonly encountered conditions worldwide which means wait times to see a headache specialist can be extensive. We offer rapid access headache clinics at NCT for headache assessment.
NCT is proud to be a primary site for research in medical cannabis for headache with future plans to explore psychedelic therapy as a treatment for Cluster Headache and Migraine.
Psychedelic Therapy for Cluster Headache & Migraine
At present, psychedelic treatments such as psilocybin (sometimes referred to as “magic mushrooms”) for the management of headache are only available through research studies and the special access program in Canada.
Our clinic continues to develop our psychedelic treatment expertise and plans to lead and host future research trials. Follow NCT on social media or call to inquire regarding the current status for these new treatments and potential to participate in future research trials.
