Neurology at the Centre for Pain Medicine
At the Centre for Pain Medicine’s Neurology Department, highly-qualified neurosurgeons and specialists provide patients with expert neurological diagnoses.
We examine and treat patients with nerve pain and headaches. In order to offer our patients the best possible treatment, we also work closely with doctors and therapists from other medical fields.
Consultations for patients with headaches and facial painHeadache consultations
Modern headache therapy is done in conjunction with neurologists (medication), psychologists (relaxation therapy, biofeedback, pain management), physiotherapists (endurance training, individual exercises, gradually increasing exertion levels) and anaesthesiologists/neurosurgeons (interventional pain therapy, acupuncture, hypnosis). You can also participate in our intensive “Headache Week” programme, during which all the above-mentioned treatments are addressed. Patients with headaches or facial pain are examined by a team of neurologists, physiotherapists and psychologists. Following the exam, the team analyses the results to make a diagnosis and set up a treatment plan.
Nerve pain therapy
Nerve pain (neuropathic pain) is caused by damage to the nerves. Tests for nerve damage include:
- neurological examinations
- neurophysiology (electroneurography, electromyography, evoked potential, EEG)
Nerve pain is treated with medication, pain patches, interventions such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS),
nerve blocks and nerve stimulation techniques.
