Questions & Answers About Migraines
What are migraines?
Migraines are a neurological disorder characterized by episodes of severe pain and other symptoms, including head pain, nausea, vomiting, sensitivities to light, touch, or smells, and in some cases visual disturbances called “auras.” These can typically last anywhere from 4 hours to 4 days long. Chronic sufferers have difficulty functioning and often seek a quiet, dark place in which to recover. They affect 12 percent of the US population, including adults and children (Migraine Research Foundation).
What causes migraines?
It is not completely known exactly what causes the onset of migraine attacks though it is believed that migraines are a neurological disorder. Researchers believed that the brain is over aroused with too much activity, which can cascade into a migraine. Triggers, such as stress and hormone changes, are common.
Does Neurofeedback help?
Yes, they tend to reduce the number and intensity of having migraine attacks. One study found that 70 percent of the study participants showed 50 percent reduction in the frequency of headaches. The National Headache Foundation also lists neurobiofeedback as a treatment option that can be helpful. Neurofeedback training involves training the brain to function in way that will cause it to become less overstimulated. After we obtain a brain map which measures the electrical activity in your brain, we can create a custom protocol to help your brain learn to self-regulate and remain in balance more often. What results are fewer headaches, and more time for you to live your life.
