More about Bushra Malik
I decided to specialize in headache medicine because I personally have migraines since the age of 16, and I also have family members that suffer with migraines. I saw firsthand how headaches can negatively affect someone’s life including occupation, relationships and their overall quality of life. I believe that treatment for migraines starts with healthy living and I encourage this with all my headache patients. Once the correct diagnosis is made, I will work with patients to create an individualized treatment plan. On the first visit I review possible triggers with patients and teach them to make lifestyle modifications such as changes in their sleep habits, diet or dealing with stress. I prescribe medications to prevent or reduce the number of migraines per month. Along with prescription medication, I also recommend specific supplements that have been shown to reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches. If patients take their medication as prescribed along with lifestyle changes, they can drastically reduce headaches and improve their quality of life. I am a board certified neurologist specializing in treating patients with headaches and migraines. I joined St. Luke’s Neurology in 2010. Shortly after that I started the Headache Infusion Centers in Allentown and Bethlehem. After my residency training in neurology, I completed two fellowships (specialty training) at Cleveland Clinic. One fellowship was in headache and pain, the other in palliative medicine. Here at St. Luke’s Headache Center we can offer the patients the latest treatment modalities. I work with a great multidisciplinary team including physical therapists, psychologists, social workers, neurosurgeons and ophthalmologists. I enjoy living in the Lehigh Valley with my husband, daughter and our Labrador Retriever named “Happy.” In my free time I like to travel and spend time gardening.
