Headaches

Headaches are Treatable

Dull, aching head pain. Tightness and pressure around your head and temples. Pain behind or around your eyes. Tension over your forehead or back of your head. Our headache clinic in Melbourne has a proud history of helping people with headaches and migraine.

Headaches present in different ways for different people. Temples, frontal, behind the eyes, back of your head, radiating up from your neck, the different types of headache presentation seem endless!

For some people headaches occur from time to time and might be mild, for others it can be daily and debilitating! Either way, a headache doesn’t necessarily mean anything is seriously wrong but always needs to be checked.

A Melbourne Headache Solution for you!

The good news is most headaches are usually musculoskeletal in origin. In that we mean most are usually derived from structural problems. The cause of those structural problems can be varied though.

One of the most common forms of headache is known as cervicogenic headache. Just as the name suggests, this form of headache is caused by changes in the function of your neck. The result of this is often referred pain into the head.

Some people with cervicogenic headache will often comment that they feel like their pain is coming from their neck as a result tightness or stiffness, but this doesn’t have to be the case.  

For others, the cause of headache can be varied and may be aggravated by sitting postures, workstation setup, sleeping postures, stress, visual problems, noise or even emotional issues.

Which Type of Headache do i have?

The types of head pain are broad with each type having different causes that require different specific treatments. One thing that is consistent to all forms of headache and migraine though is the involvement of the nervous system. In fact, it’s actually been suggested that headache and migraine might be the most common neurological disorder!

Types of headaches that we commonly see include at our headache clinic in Melbourne:

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people are often concerned whether the practitioners they are looking to can help them. That’s completely normal and we understand this. But there truly is only one true way of knowing whether we can help you or not and that is with a thorough assessment. What we can say is that we promise to be truthful, open and honest with our findings and also work with you to achieve goals you would like to achieve in ways you feel comfortable in achieving them. We understand for many people they still feel a little insecure, and that’s ok. So if you would like to have a brief chat with one of our practitioners about your case prior to coming in, arrange a 10 minute phone appointment with one of our practitioners so we can quickly work out if your problem is one we often work with.

Your initial assessment is the most important appointment you’ll have with our team. Your initial assessment provides us with the time to gather all the important bits of information we need to adequately identify the cause of your problems and work with you heading forward. It is comprised of various health, neurological, physiological and biomechanical tests designed to not only find the cause of your problem, but to help us identify any other potential problems that might be developing.

Often we may require the use of further assessments such as our digital foot scanning technology or heart rate variability technology. In some circumstances we may need to refer you for specialized imagery, such as X-Rays or MRI, or for various laboratory tests. Rest assured our team will walk you through this process so there are no worries or fears along the way.

The complete process of an initial assessment can take up to one hour depending upon the complexity of your problem.

Most health funds have some form of rebate for Chiropractic services. A quick call to your private health insurance provider should be able to answer this for you. Usually there is a separate section for ancillary healthcare which includes Chiropractic, Osteopathy, physiotherapy and other similar health care practices. So simply give your insurer a call and they’ll be able to advise you on your level of coverage.

In terms of our office, when you attend for your appointment we’ll provide you with an itemized receipt which you can use to immediately claim your assessment off. This allows you to keep track of your rebates without any stress at all.

Chiropractic care is not directly medicare rebatable in Australia. However, our practitioners do like working with your GP to provide an integrative approach to your health. As such, our team do accept Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) arrangements which allows for some rebates to be paid by medicare.

If you’re unsure or have specific questions in relation to the use of your EPC plan, just give our office a call and we’ll discuss its use with you further.

We have our own specific parking available right behind our office. Feel free to park within this space. Otherwise, there is free parking available on the road alongside our office on Curtin Street.

Tottenham station is approximately 1.5km along Ashley Street and Dobson’s Reserve bus stop is also a mere 50m from our office. Many people attending our office get here via the bus and train.
