WHAT: In its continued efforts to educate the community about headaches and how
to most effectively treat them, the Casa Colina Headache Center is hosting
a free community seminar on Wednesday, April 13. Guest speakers Ernestina
Saxton, M.D., Ph.D., program medical director of Casa Colina Headache
Center and Barbara Johannsen, PT, MS, ATC, OCS, a Casa Colina staff physical
therapist and certified orthopedic clinical specialist, will discuss why
headaches are the most common medical problem presented to physicians
today; how headaches differ among age groups; how other health conditions
affect migraines; why an individual's history of headaches is key
to proper diagnosis and treatment; and treatment options for various types
of headaches. In addition, attendees will have an opportunity to participate
in a question and answer period with Dr. Saxton and Johannsen.
Those in attendance will also receive information about Casa Colina Headache
Center. The center is a unique physician-directed program designed to
help individuals, ages 5 and older, discover how to prevent or better
manage their recurring headaches. Spearheaded by Dr. Saxton, the center
offers a multi-disciplinary clinical team that is comprised of board-certified
neurologists, radiologists, psychologists, nutritionists and licensed
physical therapists that collaborates with pain management specialists,
physiatrists, and other clinicians as needed. Together, they work closely
with referring physicians, patients and their families to determine the
underlying cause of an individual's ongoing headaches to determine
the most effective treatment. In addition, the team meets regularly to
discuss patients' cases, progress and treatment options.
