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 dedicated Headache and Migraine Treatment Clinic offers patients Headache Specialist General Practitioner, Specialist Neurologist and Headache Nurse Specialist support, as well as access to PBS and Medicare approved treatments for migraine.

Patients will experience a unique migraine treatment journey, with individually adapted therapeutic plans put in place. Each patient is comprehensively assessed, and patient education and ongoing support is provided.

On a personal note, many members of our team also suffer from this condition, and are all too aware of the impact of the headaches and migraines on a person’s ability to perform daily activities, as well as participate fully within family and professional life.
