Conditions We Treat
Migraine is the most common condition we treat at the Melbourne Headache Centre, which is not surprising given it is the leading cause of disability in people under the age of 50 worldwide!
30% of our patients have almost daily symptoms spread across a number of conditions from chronic migraines and chronic tension-type headaches, to new daily persistent headache, hemicrania continua and persistent postural-perceptual dizziness.
Not only do we see significant results providing treatment for different forms of migraine, including migraine with aura and vestibular migraine, but as a niche clinic highly focussed on disorders of brainstem sensitivity we have developed expertise in a range of other conditions that many other clinics won't have even heard of. These include less common primary headache disorders such as cluster headache, hypnic headache, exertional headache, as well as conditions 'associated with migraine' such as cyclic vomiting syndrome, abdominal migraine, hyperacusis, chronic non-allergic rhinitis, and central sleep apnoea.
