A migraine is a severe headache that can last for hours or even days. In many cases, these headaches are disabling for the patient.
The symptoms of a migraine vary. However, some of the most common symptoms patients experience include:
Some patients with migraines may also vomit or pass out.
Researchers believe that migraines may occur because of changes in the way the brainstem interacts with the trigeminal nerve. In addition, imbalances in certain chemicals in the brain may also play a role in the development of a migraine.
Some patients are more likely to suffer migraines than others. Risk factors for migraines include being female, having a family history of migraines, and being a young adult.
Most people who suffer migraines are more likely to experience attacks after coming into contact with certain triggers. Some of the possible triggers of migraine attacks include:
Some patients with migraines may respond to more than 1 trigger.
Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center develops customized treatment plans for patients who experience migraines. Treatments alleviate the pain during a migraine and shorten the duration of the attack. The doctors also incorporate treatments designed to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks in the future.
Studies have shown that conservative treatments, such as massage therapy and chiropractic care, help reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. These therapies also alleviate some of the symptoms patients experience during an attack.
Many patients who seek treatment for migraines at Advanced Back & Pain Center report a noticeable reduction in symptoms shortly after beginning treatment. In most cases, symptoms continue to improve as the patient attends more treatment sessions.
