To study the efficacy of the Comprehensive Head- ache Clinic.
There were 302 patients who presented at the Headache clinic between July 2011 and January 2012. The efficacy of treatment was evaluated with questionnaires including Headache Impact TestTM (HIT-6TM), Pain Score, and Headache frequency per week.
Of the 302 cases, 113 (37.42%) completed a four-week followup. The efficacy of treatment was analysed by using Paired T-test. The impact of headache symptoms, the severity, and the frequency of headache per week had decreased significantly from a statistical point of view. HIT-6TM Score day 0 = 62±5.66, day 28 = 52±7.15 (p < 0.01, t = 2.13), Pain Score day 0 = 7±1.92, day 28 = 3±2.46 (p < 0.01, t = 1.96), Headache frequency per week day 0 = 3±2.68,day 28 = 1±1.87 (p < 0.01, t = 2.58).
Findings from the Comprehensive Headache Clinic significantly demonstrate efficacy in reducing severity, frequency, and the impact of headache symptoms on patients’ daily lives.
