About Dr. Kline
Interventional Headache Treatment is for those individuals who suffer with chronic headaches and have had conservative treatment with little or no relief from their pain. As a result, they often miss time from work and are unable to engage in regular, meaningful social activities. The interventional approach is based upon minimally invasive injection procedures, which are used to block the pain signal, thereby interrupting the headache.
Dr. Kline sees patients who:
Have chronic headaches or facial pain which have failed to respond to conventional therapy and
• Have treated with their primary care physician or specialist
• Have had relevant diagnostic studies which might include MRI and CAT scan
Have chronic neck pain or neck related headaches which have failed to respond to conventional therapy and
• Have had physical therapy or chiropractic treatment
• Have had relevant spinal imaging studies which might include MRI, CAT scan and x-rays
