If you’re looking for a headache or migraine specialist, there’s an updated resource available to you.
The Migraine Research Foundation provides an updated list of specialists listed by state in the USA (with a few in Canada too). Recently, they updated their list to include patient ages. So if you’re looking for a specialist for a child or teen, this is now a very helpful resource.
I recommend you get to a specialist as early as possible in headache and migraine treatment – it can save you a lot of headaches (no pun intended) down the road.
How are the specialists chosen? The document states:
The United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties is an independent, non-profit, professional medical organization that certifies competency in physicians who have passed a special headache subspecialty examination.
