The Headache Center at the Hospital da Luz Lisboa is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of all types of headaches.
Headaches are a common problem that affects a significant percentage of the population. They are one of the most common complaints in doctor visits and a frequent cause of absenteeism from work.
Headaches may be infrequent, mild and not interfere with normal day-to-day activities. However, some people experience frequent, severe and debilitating headaches that have a severe impact on their quality of life. Between these two extremes, other circumstances exist due to a wide range of causes.
The various origins of a headache and the many factors that may trigger them, affect their frequency, or severity, warrant a comprehensive, coordinated medical approach, in order to determine the most appropriate diagnostic and treatment options for each patient according to the specifics of their case.
The Headache Center in the Hospital da Luz Lisboa offers a integrated approach including a team of physicians in the key specialties that treat the problems most often associated with headaches, making it possible to address virtually all types of headaches.
