At the Sydney Headache and Migraine Clinic™, we provide a range of treatment services to help assess and treat patients suffering from headaches and Migraines.
Importantly, our service involves the treatment of the root cause of your headache or migraine rather than the trigger or symptoms of our patients. The initial step undertaken by all patients is an in-depth assessment process. This usually takes 60 minutes where we gain a thorough understanding of your condition through a combination of physical examination and subjective assessment.
The subjective assessment involves discussing and asking you specific questions around your symptoms, lifestyle and habits. Once we have completed the in-depth subjective assessment, we then perform an examination of your cervical spine to identify what is causing your migraine or headaches. We then proceed by identifying whether the trigeminal cervical nucleus located in the brainstem is the cause of your condition.
Current research has shown that those with headaches and migraines tend to have brainstem that is hypersensitive to normal sensory input. This is believed to be the underlying cause of the majority of migraines and headaches. The examination process is completely safe, it is non-invasive and surgical-free. If we can determine that the brainstem is the root cause of your condition, then the treatment process can start immediately.
At the Brisbane Headache and Migraine Clinic™, we provide a multitude of services to help your headache or migraine.
An integral part in treating headache and migraine conditions is to ensure the root cause of your condition is instigated. The first part of our service is to have a thorough and in-depth assessment process. This usually takes one hour whereby we gain a thorough understanding of your condition by discussing and asking you specific questions, so we understand your history and headache presentation.
Once we have an understanding on the history of your condition, we then perform an assessment to identify what is causing your headaches and migraines. This process involves identifying whether the brainstem and the trigeminal cervical nucleus is the cause of your condition. Research has shown that those with headaches and migraines tend to have a hypersensitive brainstem. This finding is usually the underlying cause of headache and migraine disorders. This assessment process is completely safe, it is non-invasive and surgical-free.
If we can determine the root cause of your condition, then the treatment process can be commenced immediately.
