OH, YOUR ACHING HEAD!

Montefiore Hospital’s Headache Clinic is seeking to eliminate our head woe
MONTEFIORE Hospital’s famous Headache Clinic in the Bronx, N. Y., is the largest in the nation and for the past ten years has been trying to find a cure for the head misery that plagues more than 12,000,000 Americans. Clinic patients are examined for eyestrain, brain impulses and blood flow to the head. Where no organic defect is found, doctors can often relieve headaches with psychotherapy. People with migraine headaches, it has been discovered, are generally of superior intelligence. Aspirin, anyone?

    (pout) WordPress ate my old comment, but it’s just to say that much of what’s written in this article has been either disproved by modern research or made insignificant. Migraine has a hereditary basis – the genes have been mapped out – and psychotherapy can be of use in all painful conditions. It doesn’t mean that the therapy actually cures the condition!
