Note: The Michigan Headache Clinic is the flagship clinic for Headache Clinics of America™


The Michigan Headache Clinic® is a treatment program for people with painful disorders of the head and face. Our clinic serves Michigan, surrounding states and Canada from our East Lansing clinic. Later this year we will be offering a telemedicine service for certain select patients.

We are a private Michigan practice and we welcome patients who are referred by primary physicians and specialists as well as patients who refer themselves.

What your headaches are costing you...and how we can help you.

We are very sensitive to the direct and indirect costs to our patients, especially in this era of increased drug costs and often exorbitant insurance deductibles and co-pays.

See the award-winning documentary we made for PBS. The film is intended to increase awareness of migraine and to empower sufferers. It helps nonheadache people, like spouses and employers, to better understand what it is like to get such severe headaches. See more about it on the IMDB page.

The Michigan Headache Clinic is pleased to sponsor Arbor Medicus.

We know how difficult times are in Michigan these days and healthcare is not readily available to everyone. In the interest of better quality healthcare, we invite you to join the Arbor Medicus Global Medical Community. There is no charge.

It will allow you to take your medical history, using cutting edge interactive video, and give it to your doctor before each visit.

If you are a new patient to our clinic, you already have been registered and if you are an existing patient, we will be enrolling you on your next visit.
