About Us

Welcome to Migraine Specialist Brisbane

Migraine is a debilitating neurological condition that affects approximately 3.5 million Australians. Nearly all people who suffer from migraine report a reduction in social activities and work capacity. Migraine Specialist was created with the goal of increasing awareness of the condition, as well as to provide approved treatments for sufferers.

Our Headache and Migraine Treatment Clinic offers patients access to Neurologists, a GP and Nursing support, as well as options for PBS and Medicare approved treatments for migraine. Each patient is comprehensively assessed, with education and ongoing support provided.
