Migraines: Causes and Symptoms
Migraines are very powerful, painful headaches that can also cause nausea, dizziness, sensitivity to light, and sensitivity to sound. Lasting anywhere from a few hours to a few days, the severity of the migraine pain can be deeply impactful on a person’s quality of life, and can cause:
Depression and Anxiety
Withdrawal from friends and family
Inability to work or socialize
Loss of sleep or poor quality of sleep
Chicago’s Leaders in Comprehensive Migraine Treatment that Works
We are leaders in conservative treatment for migraine pain and undergo a comprehensive exam, noting our patient’s symptoms and conditions, as well as medical history and history of previous treatment, to determine a course of action for treating migraine pain. Many treatments may include or be a combination of responsible medication management, physical therapy, acupuncture, an injection-based protocol, or other innovative treatments:
Many patients respond positively to our botox injections which can be repeated every three months. Patients who experience this treatment find that their number of headaches per month decrease with each treatment session.
Responsible Medication Management
Other patients may find relief from migraine prophylaxis treatment. These medications are used as a first-line treatment in many cases, and they act to help in the prevention of migraines.
When someone experiences pain, it’s not only restricted to the body – pain impacts the mind, the attitude, and the psychology of the person in pain. Our physicians recommend mindfulness meditation as part of a comprehensive migraine treatment plan. Meditation inhibits the part of the nervous system responsible for stress, a frequent migraine trigger. Mind-body techniques such as meditation may relieve headaches by alleviating underlying stress.
Many of our patients find positive results when they couple their migraine treatment with a physical therapy program. Our physicians work with primary care physicians as well as experienced, qualified physical therapists to ensure our patients benefit from a comprehensive treatment plan.
