NJHRC's CORE PRINCIPLES

At New Jersey Headache Relief Center we are guided by five core principles that represent an elevated standard of care for our patients. We believe you should expect nothing less than the very best we have to offer and that is what you will experience every time you visit our office. Our core principles are:
  • EMPATHY – Some of the individuals we serve have pain conditions so severe that their suffering affects nearly every aspect of their lives. This is no way to live and we will do everything in our power to help YOU conquer your unique pain condition. We always take your pain seriously and truly care about the quality of your life.
  • PRECISION – Whether we are carefully mapping the bite forces in your mouth on a tooth-by-tooth basis or measuring your specific level of range of motion impairment, accuracy is paramount. Everything we do here at the New Jersey Headache Relief Center requires precise measurements to pinpoint the root causes of your pain.
  • THOROUGHNESS – Our uniquely comprehensive diagnostic approach leaves no stone unturned. Here we will not only perform direct examinations of you, but we also comprehensively evaluate your head, health, headache and medical histories to establish patterns and expose root causes for pain.
  • TRANSPARENCY – You need to understand what is going on inside you every bit as much as we do. We carefully explain and share our findings with you.
  • TOTAL BODY WELLNESS: Our treatment approach is multidisciplinary. We draw on breakthrough technologies to diagnose and treat you, but we go beyond that. Your care will extend beyond office visits — we will teach you about best practices for health and well-being at home and give you the tools to maintain a pain-free lifestyle long after your in-office treatment visits conclude.
