What is a Multimodal Approach?

The multimodal approach offers multiple modalities of treatment including pharmacological and non pharmacological. When utilizing a pharmacological approach, careful attention needs to be paid to the patient to avoid developing unwanted effects of medications while aiding in the pain relief. The multimodal approach uses abortive medications for acute headache pain relief but offers treatments such as blocks and injections for continued pain relief and preventative measures. Headache treatment can work best when multiple modalities are used together at every visit throughout the duration of treatment.
