When it comes to pain relief for migraines, people typically take some form of medication without considering that there may be a much deeper issue behind the acute pain.
Dr Omarjee offers consultations for chronic migraine management that go beyond the pain to address potential underlying issues. Dr Omarjee will ensure that all of your questions are addressed so you can make an informed decision on the best form of migraine management for you.

What Is A Migraine?
Migraines are a common issue affecting nearly 12% of the Australian population. They can occur in the form of an acute headache, causing pain, followed by a series of other uncomfortable symptoms such as light and sound sensitivity. Sufferers may also experience difficulties with vision, nausea, vomiting, and tingling sensations within the extremities.
Therapy can be optimised through a management program that encompasses education and behavioural treatments as well as specific treatment or therapy, such as anti wrinkle injections for migraines. Educating patients on the nature and mechanism of their acute pain or illness will help to empower the patient to actively participate in his or her own migraine management program.
How Many Consultations Does Dr Omarjee Require?
Depending on the level of discomfort and acute pain, we may suggest scheduling multiple consultations in order to effectively assist you in managing your pain.
How Can Migraines Be Treated?
Due to the increased number of people experiencing migraine pain, there are medications specifically designed to ease the symptoms and provide pain relief for migraines. Other over-the-counter medications are available to treat the early signs, but these are often a short-term form of assistance. Medications used to combat these debilitating headaches are pain relievers or prescribed preventative medicines.
Pain relief for migraines can be taken on the spot and may provide momentary relief from the painful symptoms associated with a migraine attack. These pain relievers are only to be occasionally taken to relieve intense pain and not as a routine medication. They also may not be suitable if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
Dr Omarjee will be able to assist you in selecting the best treatment for you, including alternatives to medication such as anti wrinkle injections in the head and neck.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections For Migraines
The DOC Clinic offers anti-wrinkle injections as a migraine treatment to Melbourne patients experiencing long-term migraines. Injections in the muscles of the head and neck can help to lessen muscle pain caused by migraines. Should these injections prove to improve pain from migraine episodes, you may be treated every three months to help you achieve longer term pain relief for migraines.
The DOC Clinic is a private specialist clinic. Fees charged are in line with AMA recommended rates for specialist consultations. The fee may vary according to the service provided to you on the day you are seen. We require full payment on the day of consultation, and accept cash, EFTPOS, Visa and MasterCard.
Some consultations and/or treatments may attract a Medicare rebate. If so, we will provide a receipt with the relevant Medicare item number. With this receipt, you can visit your local Medicare/Centrelink office, or download the Medicare app from Apple App Store or Google Play Store, then follow the instructions for claiming a Medicare eligible consult, service or treatment. The DOC Clinic can process Medicare claims in the clinic.
A Medicare rebate may apply for your migraine consultation, but not for the treatment itself.
