Migraines Q & A

What are migraines?

While most people who don’t suffer from migraines think they’re simply bad headaches, those who have experienced a true migraine know they’re much more than that. Nearly one in eight Americans will suffer from this recurring head pain, which is often accompanied by throbbing or pulsing sensations, sensitivity to light, nausea, and muscular weakness. Migraines can be exhausting and may make it impossible for you to work or continue on with your daily activities.

What causes migraines?

There are a number of things that can trigger a migraine, including:

  • Stress
  • Hormonal changes
  • Certain foods and food additives
  • Environmental factors
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Sleep deprivation or too much sleep
  • Weather changes
  • Bright light or loud noises
  • Physical overexertion

There is no shortage of migraine triggers. If you live with migraines, restoring comfort and balance to your life will come down to managing your triggers and working with a migraine expert.

How are migraines treated?

The team at Myofascial Pain Specialists is extremely experienced in treating migraines. In fact, they routinely deliver care that gives patients total migraine relief. On top of the traditional methods of migraine treatment, including medication, Myofascial Pain Specialists have two powerful tools that can help you: nutrition and Toradol or Sarapin injections.

By developing a nutrition plan tailored to you, they can help you minimize the regularity and intensity of your migraines. Nutraceuticals can also help deliver your body what it needs to keep this pain at bay. Because certain foods and drinks can trigger migraines, identifying and eliminating these triggers can be transformative for you.

In addition to the nutritional approach, Myofascial Pain Specialists also offers non-steroidal, powerful Toradol or Sarapin injections in your back or neck. Toradol is a powerful anti-inflammatory painkiller and Sarapin is a naturally-derived way to block pain signals in the nerves at the injection site. Two to three of these injections can offer you relief from the pain of your migraine.

By blending the most effective migraine treatments and customizing your care to your specific needs and your unique triggers, Myofascial Pain Specialists can help you put a stop to your head pain. As seasoned migraine experts, they will work with you until you get total relief.
