One of the most important parts of treating your headaches or migraines is to find the underlying cause. This is why the first part of your service is our in-depth assessment. This first session will take an hour, and we aim to gain a full understanding of your symptoms and how they are affecting your life.
From there, we will perform a specific examination of your upper cervical spine and brainstem. This is to try and prove that they are the underlying cause of your headaches and migraines. Modern research has shown that a sensitised brainstem, specifically the Trigeminal- Cervical Nucleus, is often the underlying cause of many headaches and migraines. Our assessment is safe, gentle, non-invasive and relies on zero medications.
Once we have determined the underlying cause of your headaches or migraines, the treatment process can start right-away!
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.
