HEADACHE CENTRE OF VICTORIA

At the Headache Centre of Victoria we diagnose and treat patients with:
  • Headache
  • Migraine
  • Cluster Headache
  • Neck related headache
  • Headache and Jaw pain related to bruxism
  • Temperomandibular disorders (also referred to as TMD or TMJ)
  • Orofacial conditions including Bell’s palsy
  • Tinnitus and Hyperacusis in conjunction with Audiologists, ENT surgeons and medical practitioners
Headache and Migraine have multi-factorial causes. Since each patient has a different cause to their headache or migraine we assess beyond the brain, neck and temperomandibular joint (TMJ) to evaluate the root cause of the condition. Headaches and Migraine can be more than a Pain in the Neck and TMJ Contact us for a Holistic and Biomechanical approach!
At the first consultation we spend time to assess the different factors that can contribute to headaches. We evaluate:
  • the biomechanics of your head, neck, spine, shoulders, hips, and if required the lower limbs
  • the contribution of your neck in addition to the upper neck region which houses the trigeminocervical nucleus
  • the orofacial region, the jaw, the temperomandibular joint region or for signs of bruxism
  • neural sensitisation
  • hormonal factors
  • whether other structures are involved
  • food sensitivities
We closely liaise with medical practitioners, integrative medical specialists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, dentists, oral medicine specialists (such as Dr Jonathan Tversky, A/Prof Michael Stubbs), ENT surgeons and other health professionals when patients need to be referred and whether scans need to be considered.
