Movement Disorders and Functional Neurosurgery

Staff in the Center for Neurological Restoration's Section of Movement Disorders and Functional Neurosurgery offer unparalleled expertise in the latest treatments for movement disorders (such as Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, essential tremor, dystonia, Tourette syndrome, myoclonus, ataxia and chorea) to help people improve function and quality of life.Treatments include medication, therapy and surgical management. Patients also have access to the most promising treatments of tomorrow through numerous clinical trials in which the center participates.

Medical management is the cornerstone of movement disorder care. Pharmacological management (such as oral medications and botulinum toxin injections), patient education and family support are important aspects of the comprehensive treatment plan we provide for each of our patients. As movement disorders are often accompanied by behavioral, cognitive and other "non-motor" complications, our multidisciplinary team also can guide you with issues such as depression, cognitive decline, nutrition and disease prognosis.

The center is nationally recognized for the latest and most promising innovations in the treatment of all movement disorders and for being a world leader in functional and restorative neurosurgery, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), which is an option for select patients with Parkinson disease, essential tremor and some forms of dystonia. Center staff are also studying how DBS may alleviate other conditions, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette syndrome, some forms of chronic pain, and weakness following stroke. We also offer other functional neurosurgical procedures such as gamma knife surgery (for tremors), spinal cord stimulation surgery (for various pain syndromes), and shunt procedures (for normal pressure hydrocephalus).

The center has earned international recognition for setting the standards of care for movement disorders. In particular, people with Parkinson's disease, essential tremor or dystonia will benefit from the comprehensive, integrated approach to patient care provided by center staff. Team members collaborate on each patient's particular problem and unique needs so that an individualized management and treatment plan can be developed.

Young Onset Parkinson Disease Support Group

Mission Statement
Our mission is to establish the optimal quality of life for the Northeast Ohio community by providing support, information, and advocacy to improve the lives of those with young onset Parkinson disease and those who care about them. We achieve our mission through public awareness, education, advocacy and supporting research until a cure is found. Our goal is to help you be informed, live well and stay strong.

About Parkinson Disease
Parkinson disease is a neurological disorder that affects movement. Symptoms may include slowness, rigidity, tremor, and problems with balance and posture. The symptoms of Parkinson disease result from the loss of dopamine-producing cells in the brain, but the cause of cell loss is not known. Medications and surgical treatments can relieve symptoms but do not cure the disease. More than a million people in the United States have Parkinson disease.

There are several excellent websites that provide information about Parkinson disease and its treatment. See some of our favorites under resources.

What is “young onset?”
The average age at which Parkinson disease is diagnosed is 60. However, about 10-20% of those diagnosed with Parkinson disease are under age 50, and about half of those are diagnosed before age 40. When the diagnosis is made early, it is referred to as "young onset" Parkinson disease. So young onsets face different challenges than those diagnosed in their 60s and 70s.

Why do we have a Young Onset Parkinson Disease support group?

  • Connecting with other young people who are going through similar experiences can make you feel less alone. We believe that support groups provide the best forum for the individual and their caregiver to quickly gather information and to grow in the knowledge and understanding of their disease. In support groups you find wonderful people with compassion, courage, humor, and a desire to help each other.
  • To recognize and come to terms with your condition at a young age allows you to accept what has happened to you and you can take care of yourself, exercising, taking part in the daily activities you have always enjoyed, consulting a movement disorder specialist and participating with him or her in managing your disease. In other words, take charge of your life as much as possible.
  • Living with Parkinson disease (PD) does not mean you should limit what you do. You should live life to the fullest, just as you would without PD. You do not need to advertise you have PD but, at the same time, don’t hide the fact. Freely admit you have the disease, it is nothing to be ashamed of. By being in a support group, you can tell your story which may help somebody else, or you might hear someone else’s story and gain some help from it. Through this give and take you gain strength and courage and learn new ways to cope. No matter how long you have had PD, attending support group meetings should be beneficial for you. The earlier you start, the greater the benefit.
  • We offer education about resources such as healthcare, insurance information, budgeting & planning, estate and special needs planning, support services for family & friends and veterans, case management services, mental health and employment and disability information.

How can a support group serve you?

  • Learn about Parkinson’s disease treatment, news and research
  • Connect with other young people who understand the challenges first hand
  • Generate and share ideas for better self-care
  • Inspire one another to be strong and improve overall quality of life
  • Utilize your own experiences to help others

About Our Meetings

  • Frequent presentations by medical experts and others with information helpful to you
  • General discussions among our members of mutual problems, concerns, and ways of living better with Parkinson disease. We stress confidentiality at all sessions to encourage greater openness.
  • Occasional “breakout sessions” for care partners to discuss among themselves issues in caring for a person with Parkinson disease. When care partners meet separately, those with Parkinson disease talk about their own issues.
  • Exercise is a vital part of optimal living with Parkinson disease. To encourage it and to prevent complications from sitting too long, we have a short break mid-meeting during which we do easy exercises while seated.
  • We provide refreshments at our meetings, and encourage people to arrive early to meetings to get acquainted with one another and with the informational items available.

Headache & Facial Pain

Headache & Facial Pain

The Section of Headache and Facial Pain is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of headache disorders, atypical facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia and evaluation for dizziness and vertigo. Our team commonly treats patients with both primary headaches (migraines with and without auras, tension-type headaches, cluster headaches and other less commonly seen headaches) and secondary headaches (cervicogenic and post-traumatic headaches, medication-induced chronic headaches and headaches associated with inflammatory conditions), including dizzy patients. We serve more than 4,000 patients a year and offer a specialized infusion service at Cleveland Clinic’s main campus, Fairview Hospital and Hillcrest Hospital to provide urgent outpatient care to patients who would otherwise need to visit an emergency room.

Virtual Follow-Up Visits

The Section of Headache and Facial Pain is pleased to offer our patients an immediate access to discuss their follow up care. Through Cleveland Clinic's Express Care Online you no longer have to travel to be seen in person. Appointments are available daily for virtual follow up visits where you can discuss:

  • treatment
  • medication changes
  • medication refills
  • medication side effects
  • new or concerning symptoms

The cost of the virtual visit is $49. Your virtual visit will be with Jena Gustafson, PA, who works closely with all of the Headache and Facial Pain staff to coordinate and manage your care. 

Infusion Center

The nurse clinician is also in charge of our infusion suite, a treatment room devoted to intravenous infusions specific for headaches. Cleveland Clinic’s Headache and Facial Pain Clinic pioneered the development of the headache infusion service several years ago as a means to provide urgent, inpatient-type care to patients who would otherwise have visited an emergency room.

Under the guidance of our staff physician, and provides “same day” care for patients already established with the Headache and Facial Pain section provider or patients new to the program. It also provides an accessible site for initiation of analgesic research studies and analgesic treatment programs.

The infusion suite successfully functions as a site where patients can be detoxified from medications that perpetuate headaches if needed. It functions as an alternative to hospitalization. Combined with innovative approaches developed at Cleveland Clinic, the headache team has successfully treated many chronic headache patients as outpatients.

Home Care Infusion Nursing

This service can be provided in an outpatient setting, allowing the patient to stay at home or at work, while still receiving aggressive medical therapy for headaches.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapists work closely with the Headache and Facial Pain Clinic where they employ their knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, and ergonomics to assess and treat mechanical factors contributing to headaches. Therapists will assess mobility of the neck and upper body, posture, and physical environment of the home and work. Pain response to repeated movements and sustained positions is evaluated, and the patient’s general condition and activity level are considered.

Treatment focuses on educating and empowering the patient to participate in techniques and specific exercises to correct mechanical problems.

Dietary Therapy

A registered dietitian is available to analyze and review a patient’s eating patterns and medical history as they relate not only to the headache disorder but also to the patient’s general lifestyle and individual needs.

Chronic Pain & Neurorehabilitation

Chronic Pain & Neurorehabilitation

Understanding Chronic Pain 

Cleveland Clinic’s Section of Chronic Pain and Interdisciplinary Neurorehabilitation is an innovative group of clinicians who address the multifaceted needs of people with chronic pain whose pain or headache has not responded to other treatments. Backed by a long history and measurable outcomes, we offer medical, physical and psychological rehabilitation to help people restore function in spite of the chronicity of their pain.

Our team consists of highly trained clinicians including physicians, psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, counselors and nurses. We believe a thorough evaluation and personalized formulation of a patient’s chronic pain is the foundation for a successful treatment plan. Given this, we evaluate medical, biological, psychological, social and other dimensions of each patient, taking care to focus on each dimension in order to provide as effective and comprehensive approach to chronic pain as possible.

Treatments We Offer

As functional goals are the priority of our center, we focus care around comprehensive evaluation and various forms of rehabilitation:

  • Medical rehabilitation: clarification of diagnoses, reduction of harmful over-medication, removal of pain-prolonging medications (opioids, benzodiazepines), and treatment of both pain and other accompanying conditions with other medications as needed, including management of central sensitization and other pain processes. 
  • Physical rehabilitation: increased strengthening, endurance, and pain tolerance, as well as improved body mechanics, walking/gait, and independence, through physical and occupational therapy.
  • Psychological rehabilitation: reduced anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, and frustration/anger through improved coping strategies, evaluation and education on risk factors for addiction, decreased reliance on others or medications, increased sense of self-efficacy, and improved mind-body awareness. This is done through biofeedback, individual counseling, group therapy, educational sessions, and family work.

In our experience, chronic pain that has not responded to other treatments will often require aspects of each of these forms of rehabilitation.

Specialty Programs

Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program

Cleveland Clinic formed the Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program in 1979 to help those with chronic, disabling pain. Since then, the program has helped more than 6,000 people manage chronic pain through a unique, intensive, comprehensive, and individualized care program emphasizing a return to wellness. The Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program has been recognized for its national and international excellence in this model of care, and was recognized in 2012 by the American Pain Society as a Pain Management National Center of Excellence. The program continues to help patients regain their lives while periodically contributing important research insights on chronic pain rehabilitation.

The Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program is a three-week multidisciplinary medical, physical and psychological rehabilitation program. Combining multiple disciplines allows us to deliver comprehensive care which targets the multiple needs of all patients whining our program. Treatments include management of medical care and medications, strength condition, both family and individual therapy as well as relaxation and biofeedback training. Recondition and psychological coping strategies are a key focal point of the program, which has led to success in treatment and improved quality of life for our patients.

Interdisciplinary Method for the Assessment and Treatment of Chronic Headache (IMATCH)

We offer a unique treatment option for chronic headaches called IMATCH (Interdisciplinary Method for the Assessment and Treatment of Chronic Headache). The IMATCH treatment program is designed for headache sufferers whose lives have been severely disrupted. This comprehensive outpatient program simultaneously addresses medical, physical and emotional needs, combining medical management, physical therapy, and group and individual psychotherapy.

Additional Services

  • Biofeedback: We offer the ability for patients to learn more about how their body and neurological system responds to both internal and external stress. Psychophysiological assessments are valuable for learning how pain, stress, tension, reactivity, and other neurological symptoms are activated. 
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain Program: In collaboration with the Women’s Health Institute and Pain Management Anesthesia, our department offers specialized assessments for chronic pelvic pain. Our multidisciplinary approach includes medical, psychological, and physical assessments. We are well-suited to chronic pelvic pain syndromes including chronic endometriosis, pudendal neuralgia, vulvodynia, and unexplained pelvic pain. 
  • Back on TREK: Cleveland Clinic's unique 12-week program for managing back pain designed to promote recovery to function.
  • Fibromyalgia Management Program: Our Fibromyalgia Management Program includes evaluation by a rheumatologist, cognitive behavioral therapy and physical therapy.


Initial evaluation will begin by carefully reviewing your past medical and surgical history. This is followed by a comprehensive examination of medications, overall functioning, psychological health, impact on family/work and developmental history. The evaluation also includes a physical examination. Based on review of records, clinical interview, physical examination, and psychosocial evaluation, a personalized treatment plan will be discussed with you.

  • To schedule an appointment please call 216.636.5860 or 866.588.2264.
  • Prior to your initial appointment, we ask patients to mail, fax or upload pertinent medical records, mental health records and imaging to our office so our clinicians will have adequate time to review your medical history prior to your appointment.
  • Fax: 216.445.5752
  • Imaging can be uploaded via iTransfer.ccf.org/NI


Our team is dedicated to researching and understanding the many facets of chronic pain. Some of our groundbreaking research goals include objective measurement of pain thresholds in patients with chronic pain to provide the foundation for ongoing research and large scale grant application. Additionally, we are prototyping central sensitization and other processes through biological, psychological and social measures to better assess complex pain disorders. This invaluable data is captured through our multidisciplinary scientific approach which includes professionals from medicine, neurology, psychology, neuroimaging, physical rehabilitation and more. Review examples of our research efforts on central sensitization and chronic pain here.
