Our Story: A Personal Mission for Prompt Migraine Relief
The Migraine and Spine Clinic of Valdosta opened its doors in June 2017, driven by the vision of our founder, Josh Batson. As a local nurse practitioner with years of expertise in the field of neurology, Josh recognized a critical need in Valdosta, Georgia, due to the lack of treatment options for people suffering from head, neck, and back pain.
Josh’s motivation was deeply personal. He had witnessed firsthand the suffering of his wife, Christine, who battled severe migraines. Seeking relief at the emergency room often meant enduring long wait times and a lack of prioritization for migraine patients. These experiences inspired Josh to establish a local clinic dedicated to alleviating headache pain swiftly and on a walk-in basis for patients in South Georgia and North Florida.
