WHAT WE STAND FOR AT CHMRC

At Connecticut Headache & Migraine Relief Center we have adopted a handful of core principles that lend to an higher standard of care for patients who seek our help. We believe you deserve our absolute best at all times, and that you’re going to feel the difference of our approach to health care every single time you step foot in our office. We believe in:

  • EMPATHY FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER – Some of our clients have conditions so painful and chronic that their suffering impacts everything they do. Know that we will do all we can do to help you end your pain. Your quality of life is paramount.
  • PERFORMING OUR DUTIES WITH PRECISION – Whether we are measuring your bite forces on a tooth-by-tooth basis or mapping your range of motion impairment, accuracy is critical. All that we do here at the Connecticut Headache & Migraine Relief Center is precisely executed to expose the root causes of pain.
  • EXHAUSTIVE CARE – Our approach leaves nothing to guesswork. Our evaluation and examination processes are designed to comprehensively review your head, health, medical and headache histories, as well as your current condition as of today. We aim for the deepest understanding possible of what causes your pain.
  • STRONG COMMUNICATION – We always carefully explain and share our findings. You must understand what is going on within you, so you’ll know what we know.
  • WHOLE BODY WELLNESS – Call it a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. We use pioneering technologies to diagnose and treat your condition, but your care goes beyond treatment visits. We educate all our patients on best practices for health and well-being in the home and provide the tools to maintain a lifestyle that is pain-free well after your treatment visits finish are finished.
