There are many treatments for migraine. Strategies include trigger avoidance, relaxation and cognitive behavioural therapy, oral medication and some natural remedies.
Recently, a medication has been approved by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) for the treatment of chronic migraine when it is administered by a neurologist. Such injectable therapy is now more affordable and has been proven to be quite effective for some. Advantages for this type of therapy include no sedation or direct interaction with other oral medications. The procedure itself involves very small ultra-fine needles administered just under the skin in the head and neck area in the so-called ‘trigger-points’.
All our clinic doctors are specially trained in the injection technique and can advise if this is the best course of action for you. Even if it is not, there may be other solutions that may be right for you. Call today to get control of your life.
