Sydney Headache & Migraine Centre

Our Proven Process

Practitioners at Sydney Headache and Migraine Centre are experienced physiotherapists who have dedicated their career specifically to headache and migraine conditions. Head dysfunction is our sole focus and because of this we can get on top of the problem quickly for you.

85-90% of patients will respond well to Our Proven Process.

We take our patients through a 3 Phase Proven Process to get the results you need and to maintain these results, long term.

Phase One: Initial “Fast Response” Phase.
This initial phase will start with a comprehensive 60-minute assessment to determine the cause of your headache. After this, your practitioner will have a thorough understanding of your condition and will usually be able to start treatment during the first consultation. We will provide you with a clear plan forward so you understand the process.

We aim to achieve a significant reduction in intensity, frequency and duration of your symptoms, within the first 4 weeks of treatment. Your response to medications may also significantly improve during this early phase. Your practitioner will prescribe a personalised head/neck exercise program which will help maintain the improvements achieved from your manual therapy sessions.

Phase Two: Consolidation Phase
With the significant and encouraging results made in the Initial Phase, the emphasis will now shift to focus on your own ability to maintain the improvements achieved.

Your personalised head and neck exercise program will be progressed and consultations become less frequent. You will feel more in control of your condition during this time. You may choose to reduce your medications.

Phase Three: Maintenance Phase
This ongoing phase is very much patient-directed, based on your own needs and level of independence for self-management. Our goal is to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to maintain your good health, on your own!
Some patients choose to maintain a connection with us to stay ‘on track’. Others are happy to simply return only if the need arises.

Our practitioners listen to you throughout the process, with care and compassion.
We are committed to providing you with the highest level of care to give you a better quality of life.
