What We Offer
What We Treat
We treat all kinds of headaches and concussion-related pain. Headaches and migraines can stem from almost anywhere in the body, like if your gait is uneven or if you have bad posture. We treat migraines, whiplash headaches, post-concussion headaches, tension headaches, chronic headaches, and any headaches from an auto accident.
We know that a migraine headache is not just a bad headache, it is more than that and deserves to be treated as such. Migraines can stem from several different issues, and they aren’t necessarily all rooted in the head. Hormones and biomechanics are much bigger factors in your overall health than you might think.
If you are experiencing chronic headache pain, it could be due to unknown factors and that is what we are here to find out. We will evaluate your biomechanics, neurology, hormones, nutrition, and more. We can help you get the pain relief you’ve been searching for.
To properly diagnose you and find the origin of your headache pain, we have several different methods of diagnosis.
We use qEEG, VNG, and a physical exam.
A qEEG is a quantitative electroencephalograph. There is a small difference between a qEEG and a standard EEG. A qEEG uses mathematical and statistical analysis methods of mapping the brain. A qEEG will compare your brain mapping to standard gender and age control. Basically, it maps out your brain’s electrical activity and measures it. The map of your brain's electrical activity is compared to others in the control group to learn as much as possible about your brain map and can help in diagnosing where chronic migraine headache pain is.
A VNG is another test we use to determine where your pain is or to diagnose vertigo. A VNG is a videonystagmography and it measures involuntary eye movement. This involuntary eye movement is called nystagmus, and it can cause dizziness, headaches, vertigo, and other problems, It is a great tool we use and it can significantly aid us in our process of elimination and tests to figure out where your pain is originating.
Lastly, we perform a physical examination. Our exam focuses on two different factors, a head-to-toe assessment, and a biomechanic evaluation. Our head-to-toe evaluation will help us notice any subtleties that are unusual that may point to neurological dysfunction. Our biomechanic evaluation will examine your posture and gait, and overall movement patterns. You may not think that an uneven gait could be the root of your pain, but the body is all connected and it can be causing a variety of problems that lead to you having intense and chronic headaches.

What My Patients Say
“After being told more than a dozen times that I’m “fine”, Dr. Maesaka found the root cause of my headaches and took them from 25 a month down to 1 or 2. Now I only take my medication when I have flair ups instead of every day”
“Their approach is so comprehensive. They were able to actually show me where my headaches were coming from, and they knew exactly what to do to make them go away. Dr. Maesaka is deeply knowledgable but more than that, its so obvious he cares deeply for the well being of his patients. I truly felt heard and cared for whenever I was there”
