Migraine is a neurological condition characterized by headaches that can be severe. It is very common, affecting about 18% of women and 8% of men. Most patients have throbbing headaches accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light or sound. Irritation and swelling of blood vessels in the brain
cause migraine headaches. This pain can last a few hours to a few days.
The exact cause of migraines is unknown, but it may result from a chemical imbalance of the brain. There is a genetic predisposition to migraine, as it often runs in families. Various things can trigger a migraine attack. These triggers vary from person to person and act as a ”turn on” switch. The more triggers that happen at one time, the more likely it is that a migraine will occur.
At NeuroHealth Solutions, we integrate neuro-augmented approaches that focus on rehabilitative processes to reverse, lessen, or stop, the progression of a migraine or progressive headache. Preventive treatment, which is given even in the absence of a headache, aims to reduce the frequency and severity of migraines and make acute attacks more responsive to abortive therapy and improve the patient's quality of life.
