Our Mission

To educate and empower people suffering from headaches and migraines so that they can break free from a life of fear (of their next headache or migraine) and dependence (on medication) and thrive in everything they do.

What Treatment Looks Like

We treat all types of headaches and migraines by addressing overlooked movement problems in the neck, jaw and shoulders. We are neck specialists. Most of our techniques are hands-on, but we have a equal focus on lifestyle changes and setting up a home exercise program. We have a three-spoke framework that will leave you feeling empowered as a provider that you can help any type of headache or migraine!

How We Got Started

Dr. Taves started Novera with one goal in mind — changing the lives of people who suffer from headaches and migraines who had given up hope of ever finding a lasting solution.

Here’s the story of how Novera came to be from Dr. Taves, himself.

I didn’t start out my career focused on headaches and migraines.

After receiving a degree in exercise science, I went on to receive my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Mayo Clinic. During my time there, I was introduced to a local Physical Therapist who taught a course on how to treat the neck and jaw. This sparked my interest. I pursued other Physical Therapists (PTs) and coursework that would further my understanding of treating the neck as it relates to headaches. It was then that I realized there was a lesser-known form of treatment that had the potential for much greater impact on patients’ lives — physical therapy focused on the neck.

I wanted to work with as many patients as possible, so I worked for a couple outpatient physical therapy clinics. Up until then, all I had heard about headaches and migraines was, “Migraines are for the neurologist to treat”, or “It’s a neurological problem”, even “There is no true way for a PT to help if a patient has a migraine diagnosis”. But I saw something different. Patient after patient saw substantially more relief than anything they had tried before. Simply through the application of these hands-on techniques I had learned to treat the neck!

At that point I started to question why more PTs weren’t doing this. I had to ask, “Why were patients going decades, or even a lifetime, with medication as their only form of treatment?” It seemed absurd. What I found was that medical doctors didn’t know what the “cause” was, so they were left to offer what they could through symptom management.

The problem seemed twofold: many PT’s weren’t confident they could treat the neck or even think of treating someone for migraines, and physicians trained in a model heavily driven by pharmaceutical interventions doing their best to help.

The vision of Novera surfaced when I realized the majority of headache and migraine sufferers were skeptical that PT could help. They had been let down so many times that many were near hopeless. To add to the distrust, general PT practices are open gym settings and heavily based on exercise — two things most people with headaches and migraines find challenging. I knew I needed to build trust and show a deeper level of understanding than what a general PT practice offered.

In January 2019 Novera: Headache Center was created specifically for headache and migraine sufferers feeling hopeless and tired of relying on medication, not knowing where to turn. Our mission is to empower everyone with headaches and migraines to break free from a life of fear of your next headache or migraine and dependence on medication so that you can thrive in everything you do.
