FAQS: Advanced Treatment & Other Questions
If you have multiple, various symptoms that don’t seem to match up with any one condition, this is normal. It’s common for us to treat patients who have unique (often overlapping) conditions which others may find difficult to diagnose; this is what we've found after treating thousands of patients.
Chronic & daily headaches, “sinus” headaches/allergies/eye dryness, all types of migraine, “suicide” headaches (cluster headache, trigeminal neuralgia); light/sound/visual disturbance from migraine, TMJ disorders, jaw clenching, unexplained tooth pain, ear fullness/pressure; Meniere’s disease, dizziness, lightheadedness, vertigo, nausea, esophageal reflux (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gallbladder dysfunction (“sluggish” gallbladder), upper body tightness and burning (neck, upper shoulders, shoulder blades, mid-back), associated chest pain/tightness (“faux heart attack”), pinched neck nerves (numbness, tingling, or pain in shoulder, elbow, wrist, or hand), all upper body symptoms associated with “fibromyalgia”, seizures, parallel issues with headache/migraine (89% have migraine), atypical migraine complications (e.g., hemiplegic)
Some of the Main Benefits of Advanced Treatment at Texas Migraine Clinic:
- Reversal Effects (Most Cases): Reversal of headaches & migraines (on nearly all types we’ve tested, with rare exception)*
- Lasting Relief (In the Majority of Cases): Typical outcomes are 75% relief of headaches and migraines at 4 weeks and 90% relief at 6 weeks, including dizziness and nausea. Though not guaranteed, due to possible individual complexities, it is common that you will no longer need medications, alternative therapies, or need to avoid triggers after treatment with this System.*
- Available Worldwide: Get treated anywhere in the world (with our internet-based webcam treatment).
- Free Yourself From "Triggers": "Triggers" in most cases no longer produce headaches and migraines. This includes triggers such as light, sound, certain foods, driving, monthly cycles, etc.
- Save Finances: We believe in ending the cycle of paying for temporary relief over and over again. In most cases for our Treatment, you pay once, then you don't need us or other treatments again.* We've found this is a usual result among our patient population. We're not afraid to hold back, and make patients so consistently pain-free that they don't even need our services again, either.
- Save Time: Save time instead of wasting it driving in traffic to and from the pharmacy and doctors’ / therapists' appointments (chiropractic, massage, etc.) for treatments that don’t actually reverse the main issues causing your headaches, migraines, or associated symptoms.
- It's Convenient: Get treatment from your own house or workplace, and save time by using our worldwide, internet-based remote treatment. We're ready to help you set this up, and get started with this option.
- Be More Productive: We believe you'll get more done and be more creative at work and at home without constant headache and migraine pain.
- Live Your Life in Freedom: A common result of treatment is to continue on to a "normalized" life of spending time with family and friends instead of feeling held back all the time.
- Never Look Back: That's our goal for you. Go fulfill your goals and aspirations. : )
A common misconception many patients have before seeing us is thinking our treatment just provides “some” relief. Our Advanced Migraine Treatment System actually targets true, lasting reversal of all pain and symptoms associated with headaches and migraines. What this means is that we routinely see our evaluation and treatment reverse the worst and most painful headache and migraine cases & conditions, which often have overlapping symptom complications. These conditions include the worst of the worst, which generally include cluster headaches and trigeminal neuralgia (both known as “suicide headaches”), as well as hemiplegic migraine (which looks and acts like a stroke, with associated paralysis of an arm and leg, commonly with speech slur). Therefore, severity of headache or migraine condition isn't an issue, since the result is nearly always the same after successful treatment in patients adherent to our Treatment: permanent relief with no pain or associated symptoms.*
We’ve developed a solid internet-based remote treatment system which many patients over the past 6 years have used to engage in treatment with us in places as far away as Australia, New Zealand, South America, and even the island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean. All that’s required is a computer or tablet and a strong internet connection. We prefer to use an app called Zoom, though we’ve worked with patients through Skype and Facetime if the technology is a barrier. In these remote treatment sessions, the doctor closely monitors all your movements live on webcam, tracks all your responses to detailed questions, then gradually works towards the reversal of your headaches and migraines. This internet-based remote treatment option has proven to be highly effective in our previous patients, and the results, so far, have been nearly indistinguishable from those who showed up to our clinic's physical location in Texas for treatment.
In Dr. Turner’s words:
“Online evaluations take about 45 minutes, and follow-ups, 30 minutes. I’m very used to doing videocam interaction, having 6 years’ experience with it. It’s an ideal platform, as I can clearly discern detailed symptom patterns that I’m looking for in real-time as I visually interact with you.
I track symptoms in your head, face, upper shoulders, shoulder blades, and dizziness/nausea with a very detailed testing algorithm of repeated neck movements and sustained positions. I’m riveted on what produces your various symptoms, and more importantly, what shuts them off. Many unfamiliar with this process might think that their symptoms are too chronic, too severe and too complicated for such a simple-sounding, cryptic process. But there’s not much that I haven’t seen in the evaluation and treatment of approximately 5,200 headache/migraine patients over the past 16 years. It’s unlikely that your symptom complex will baffle or surprise me- and more importantly, stump me. This system is not a panacea, but I have a long track record of applying this logical, detailed System of real-time symptom testing to the most complex head/neck disorders with consistent success.*
For proactive clients, common outcomes are 75% relief of headaches and migraines at 4 weeks and 90% relief at 6 weeks, including dizziness and nausea. Then, consistent absence of all symptoms is common as the source of the problem completely heals. It is routine that ongoing therapies, medications, injections, and avoidance of triggers are no longer necessary. Total number of sessions on average, regardless of complexity, is 6.”*

Yes, we have seen neurologists and many other physicians of various specialties for evaluation and treatment with this System. They are also well aware of the fact that the injections and medications don’t provide permanent relief. Note that the overwhelming majority of our patients no longer need medications, injections, or ongoing alternative therapies (such as Chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, etc.). That’s the case because they generally achieve complete symptomatic relief that lasts using this System.*
Our Founder, Dr. Jeff Turner has been in practice for 32 years. His clinical Doctorate (DPT) is from Boston University in ’08, with research focus on the true source of migraines and their natural, lasting resolution. He specializes in a very detailed evaluation and treatment System proven to empower pain sufferers to rapidly reverse countless overlapping problems, then achieve lasting relief without ongoing medications, injections, or therapies. He believes that this System is the only treatment in the world at this time that permanently abolishes headaches and migraines. In other words, over 17 years of experience with evaluation and re-evaluation of approximately 5,200 patients, he believes he has “cracked the migraine headache code”. He has observed that his patients routinely stop having headaches and migraines completely and go on to living consistently pain-free and in full function at home and at work. He lives in Central Texas with his wife. He has five children and enjoys reading and running. His mantra: “God has given me the most rewarding work on earth.”
This specific treatment approach is highly unique because it reverses the source of nearly all types of headaches and migraines and associated symptoms (e.g., dizziness and nausea), with permanent results- with rare exception.
To discover the primary source(s) of YOUR unique pain and symptom problems requires attention to detail that others overlook, a reliable algorithm, and extensive experience. Dr. Turner has successfully evaluated and treated thousands of patients over the past 17 years at Texas Migraine Clinic.
The evaluation process is similar to an electrician who uses a meter to test electrical current from point A to point B, systematically. They nearly always diagnose (and fix) your electrical problems, don’t they? Well, our evaluation process is very similar. Dr. Turner pays meticulous attention to what shuts off the pain in multiple parts of your head, face, and upper body. It’s very systematic, logical, and quickly reveals the source of the problems.
Once your specific problem is located, you are then empowered to shut off your symptoms at will. As you do this, your pain and symptoms rapidly become less frequent and less intense. In many cases, they stay consistently absent as steady healing occurs. Typical outcomes are 75% relief of headaches and migraines at 3 weeks and 90% relief at 6 weeks, including dizziness and nausea. Though not guaranteed, due to possible individual complexities, it is routine that you will no longer need medications, alternative therapies, or control of triggers after treatment with this System.*
Because our treatment does things that were previously “impossible” according to the medical field, it would be easy to think so. However, when our patients’ lives are transformed by being freed from all their years of pain and looking forward to a headache/migraine-free life, they are sometimes gracious enough to leave detailed reviews. We wouldn’t be in business this long (more than 17 years) if we were engaging in such a practice, meaning manipulated or false reviews. Interestingly, they span all sorts of different headache and migraine diagnoses, among other head/neck pathologies.*
Yes, our Treatment is the only of its type in the world because Dr. Turner pioneered the treatment and has refined this personalized, meticulous method for more than 17 years. That said, Dr. Turner “Stands on the shoulders of giants”, as they say. His work and mechanical testing algorithms used in his System are based on foundational principles from the late Robin McKenzie of New Zealand and Angelo Dimaggio of Michigan. Though the bulk of his anatomical research occurred while in Boston University’s Doctoral program, his findings were unique, and remain so to this day.
There are currently two other clinics worldwide that we are aware of using a similar, basic version of this method. However, these methods have not been refined directly by Dr. Turner. You will not find this information on the internet, and it is not self-evident. It’s routinely quite surprising for patients to discover the real epicenter (pain source) of their many nerve irritation problem(s).*
“Best” treatment is somewhat of a confusing term to use here because no other treatment (including surgery, injections, medications, supplements, or alternative therapies such as chiropractic, massage, etc.) offers permanent reversal of the problem. It would seem that the “best treatment” would target the actual source of the underlying problem and reverse it for a lasting result. In other words, this rare method is designed to "turn off" headache and migraine pain permanently from the master switch. This master switch is deep in the neck where multiple nerve systems converge. In summary, results for our advanced treatment indicate permanent relief in many of our patients which puts this treatment a notch above all others that we are aware of. However, the System does require adherence to our System for both fast and lasting reversal of symptoms. It’s not passive, so you need to be ready for it, much like a very targeted and meticulous rehab program.*
The Advanced Treatment here is a mix of multiple professions combined into one. It focuses on micro-corrections of neck structural issues, which in turn shut off nerve irritation in your head, face, and even upper shoulders and shoulder blades. As damaged neck structures heal and associated nerve systems calm down, all symptoms rapidly become less frequent, less intense, less spread out, and routinely, absent altogether. Only a small subset of patients need follow-up sessions beyond our core System. We consider a successful outcome as total, consistent absence of symptoms without any need for further interventions- including ours!*

Although peer-reviewed research is ideal, it is impractical and rare in a private practice, clinical setting. That said, we have every intention to do so in the near future and have taken steps in that direction. In the interim, we rely on existing supportive research of our theoretical framework, internal stats of outcomes, which we record digitally in our clinic, common sense with regard to immediate symptom response with patient testing (i.e., what makes symptoms immediately better or worse) and the many detailed patient testimonials in our Google Reviews, and other review sites.*
Our patient outcomes reveal an average of 75% relief of headaches and migraines at 4 weeks and 90% relief at 6 weeks, including dizziness and nausea. Though not guaranteed, due to possible individual complexities, it is routine that our patients no longer need medications, alternative therapies, or control of triggers after treatment with this System.*
After successful Treatment, it is possible to experience brief bouts of recurrence, especially in the 6-9 month time frame for total tissue/nerve healing. During that healing time, you will be empowered to abolish your symptoms quickly in most cases using techniques from our System to get you back on track, or you may have to modify certain activities for a bit longer as complete tissue healing occurs. A small subset have ongoing problems, for various reasons, though such an outcome is not a usual occurrence.*
This is a great question, and the answer must be put into perspective.
To start out with perspective, we've found that other treatments never really end because they don't give lasting relief or have the potential for permanent relief.* It's just temporary relief until the next temporary-relief treatment. If it's avoiding triggers, then it's endlessly staying on diet plans and avoiding things like bright lights, loud sounds, long drives, etc.
If you look back at previous treatments that you may have had in the past, it's common you normally always keep getting medications & injections, seeing the chiropractor, and/or avoiding triggers/staying on diet plans/etc. . . . forever.
This is because we've found that most all other treatments out there just numb the pain, and are just "temporary" relief until the next "treatment".
The Advanced Treatment at Texas Migraine Clinic, is fundamentally different.*
The Treatment wasn't made to be a temporary relief treatment. Instead, it was made to give patients permanent relief that doesn't stop giving them relief.*
Therefore, since other temporary-relief treatments never really end, it's not entirely relevant how long our treatment takes, though we've worked very hard at making our Treatment take as little time as possible.
Our Advanced Treatment averages just around 6-7 weeks for near-complete healing of nerve structures to occur so that lasting relief can set in. As mentioned, if this seems too long a time, just remember that other treatments take forever - because they're just buying their patients some relief until the next temporary relief treatment dose or session.
Remember, what's causing your headaches & migraines is an internal anatomical issue, which we must address and heal. This takes time. There is simply no other way, though we are always trying to find out how to make the body heal faster and with less time.
Therefore, our Treatment (for lasting and complete relief) takes time (about 6-7 weeks), but that's so much better in our opinion than staying on other treatments forever - which never end.
Furthermore, the Advanced Treatment at Texas Migraine Clinic is not like taking a pill because we actually have to heal what's causing patients' headaches & migraines in order to achieve lasting headache & migraine relief for them. This takes time because healing takes time. Then again, we've found other treatments never seem to end because they are built on the principle of temporary relief instead of lasting relief.
Signing up, getting scheduled, and attending your 1st session usually occurs within 3-7 days, depending on our availability. A huge advantage to this System is that it can be done remotely using a webcam, so there’s no driving to/from a Dr’s or therapist’s office, or a pharmacy. You can be treated at home or any other reasonably quiet place with a good internet connection. In addition, we focus on resolving the problem so that even our System of evaluation is not ongoing, but has a relatively fixed end-point. A successful case for us is if you never need us again after your finite number of treatment sessions.*
Currently, once you take the Quiz (available through this site) and then fill out the Admission Survey, we set you up with your 1st appointment within a few weeks, typically. This is not guaranteed, by we’ll strive to get you in as close to that time frame as possible.
It's taken us a very large sum of countless hours, effort, and financial expenditures over many, many years to develop our Advanced Treatment to the highest level of performance possible. Treatment results have been perfected over 1000's of patients, and have been refined through a constant state of repetitive analysis and adaptation. Through streamlining our treatment process, we have geared the treatment to save patients both time & finances by choosing our treatment.
We do our best to make certain our treatment will work for applicants before accepting them as patients. After 1000's treatment cases, we have developed a detailed, yet highly simplified, screening process that is made to benefit all applicants, and help us quickly determine with high accuracy whether or not we believe a certain applicant will be a good fit for the treatment before paying into it.*
Furthermore, to further minimize any further risk, instead of charging 1 large upfront fee, our sessions are pay-per-session.
We believe we have the highest quality service, honestly priced, for the most difficult, resistant, and intensive headache & migraine conditions, and believe in openness & honesty in telling all applicants if & how effective we believe treatment will be for them based on extensive experience with varying headache and/or migraine cases.
In comparison, private pay for the newer migraine injectables, as a comparative starting point- which research shows may provide ~50% relief for 3 weeks out of a month - costs $7000 per year on average. Note that if patients stop these other treatment modalities, they're "back to square one", without lasting relief. This means it's an endless cycle of paying for only temporary relief - over and over again.
In contrast, our Advanced Treatment costs far less than that, and routinely has lasting results.* This is because our treatment is designed from the ground up to get patients relief that lasts as long as possible for the most severe & difficult headache & migraine cases. This, we believe, saves our average patient alot of time & finances in the long-run.
With other treatments, nearly all patients keep paying forever to get relief with non-lasting treatments. This keeps them in a seemingly endless cycle of paying for only temporary relief - treatment after treatment. In fact, before finding us, our average patient had spent the equivalent of $20,000 on temporary relief treatments (according to a previous comprehensive patient population average).
Our Treatment is different. The Advanced Treatment has proven itself to offer lasting relief to patients who adhere to it (with rare exceptions). In most all cases, the amount of money patients end up saving after treatment, we've found, is in nearly all cases far above what we charge for our Treatment. This is largely because most all of our finished patients stop other treatments and therapies they used to be on after they complete our Treatment.
With this lasting relief treatment that works to address and fix the cause of headaches & migraines (not just the downstream effects using painkillers or avoiding triggers - which don't actually fix anything), we've found lasting relief to be possible, so patients can avoid spending valuable time & money on non-lasting treatments & therapies in the future.* This is why we believe our Treatment, in the long-run, ends up saving our patients a large amount of time & finances after Treatment - because we've found that they usually don't need to pay for other treatments in the future.
If you want to see how much Treatment will be for you, please take the Admission Survey below so we can get back to you with a quote. If you decide to have treatment with us after you take the Admission Survey, we currently accept all major credit cards like VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and a billing receptionist will help set you up with that. They will also help you through the process of accepting insurance if we accept that type of insurance in the particular location you are in. We will then also help you get set up with our remote treatment option for Texas & non-Texas patients.
Over time, the costs of doing business with us are are likely to rise. We plan to continue not only the current value of what we do, but to build on it. We will steadily incur additional cost in staff, research and development, and operations, which will incur a steady price increase.*
