60 minute session

The Assessment

The assessment lasts 60 minutes, which encompasses a full and thorough questioning process so that clinicians at The Brisbane Headache and Migraine clinic™ can understand everything about your headache and migraine condition.

About The Assessment Stage

What To Expect During The Assessment


1. Comprehensive and in-depth examination

We instigate an in-depth assessment to identify all possible related factors that could be causing your headaches or migraines. The upper cervical spine, in particular, is thoroughly examined to identify possible issues.



2. Ligamental stability and vertebral arterial tests

We undertake careful examination of neck ligaments and vertebral arteries, ensuring only the highest standards of patient safety and comfort.


3. Temporarily reproduce your headache and migraine symptoms

As a part of the treatment process, we apply gentle and selective stress to the upper cervical spine in order to reproduce headache symptoms, which subside after 20-30 seconds. This helps to identify and treat the cause of your headaches.

The importance of reproducing the symptoms

The reproduction of your typical headache or migraine symptom is a powerful tool that will provide us with the ability to accurately diagnose your condition and determine if your upper cervical spine is contributing to you condition.

If we can reproduce your symptoms during assessment and treatment, then it is likely that we can achieve a positive outcome for your condition with a high success rate for you to become headache and migraine free, without the need for medication.

After your first assessment, you will be given your own personalised Prevent Headaches4Life Plan, which will guide you through the 4 necessary stages to successfully treat your headaches or migraines.

Note: the temporary reproduction of your headache or migraine will subside after the assessment, and will not stimulate a headache or migraine attack.
