At the bottom of the page, the rolling treatment options show small summaries of diverse forms of treatments available, with an option to click and read more.

The top of every page offers a convenient search bar to find a headache doctor in your area. However, the ‘Resource Library’ goes more in-depth by showing various, relevant news articles and events.
