Why Headaches Matter
In Dr. Taves’ Podcast series, The Headache Doctor Podcast, his first episode tells the story of how he began his journey of helping people with their headaches and migraines.
Dr. Taves received his doctorate in Physical Therapy at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, and there he developed a passion to help patients struggling with headaches and migraines. Through his research, he studied the underlying causes of headaches and what kinds of approach and treatment are best for complete, life-long healing.
Dr. Taves desired to know the root cause of migraines and why
medicine fails to treat the pain adequately. Migraine patients are
often sent to be treated by neurologists and are put on medication.
However, working as a physical therapist, Dr. Taves found that the
patients he treated were significantly improved without medication.
The care Dr. Taves gave his patients vastly decreased the
frequency and intensity of their headaches.
In 2018, Dr. Taves opened up his own clinic, called Novera. His
clinic is a specialized clinic that specifically treats patients with
headaches and migraines.
Dr. Taves is able to cater to his patients in order to make their
experience at Novera as comfortable as possible. He is able to
adjust lighting and sound, and he provides privacy for every patient.
His office space is a quiet, calming, and small space designed for
the comfort and protection of each patient. The vision of the Novera
clinic is three-fold. It is designed to grant patients the power to live their
lives without fear of their next debilitating migraine attack. The clinic
grants patients independence, so that they are no longer inhibited by
pain and depression. They can thrive physically, emotionally, and
mentally. Finally, Novera offers non-medicated, life-long relief.
Dr. Taves’ goal in his Podcast series is to educate patients. Over
the course of a series of episodes released weekly, Dr. Taves will reveal
the underlying cause of your headaches and migraines, and he will
offer you possible treatments including helpful tips and exercises you
can do at home. Together, let’s begin your journey to a joyful, pain-free
