Migraine Headache Treatment in Orlando, FL
Chronic, severe migraine headaches can be debilitating. Without treatment, migraines can take over a person’s life. However, with proper Osteopathic Care and the use of cutting edge medical practices, the affects can be moderated so sufferers are able to lead a relatively normal life.
Migraines may be triggered by a variety of factors, including:
Emotional stress. This is one of the most common triggers of migraine headaches. Migraine sufferers are generally highly affected by stress. During stressful events, certain chemicals in the brain are released to combat the situation, which can cause a migraine. Anxiety, worry, excitement, and fatigue can also trigger a migraine in certain people.
Sensitivity to specific chemicals and preservatives in foods. Certain foods and beverages, such as aged cheese, alcoholic beverages, and food additives such as nitrates found in such foods as pepperoni, hot dogs, and luncheon meats as well as monosodium glutamate (MSG, commonly found in Chinese food).
Caffeine. Excessive caffeine consumption or withdrawal from caffeine can cause headaches when the caffeine level abruptly drops. Caffeine itself is often helpful in treating acute migraine attacks.
Changing weather conditions. Storm fronts, changes in barometric pressure, strong winds, or changes in altitude can all trigger migraines in some.
Dr. Brett Thomas offers his patients a truly revolutionary and incredibly effective treatment for migraines.
What Causes Migraines?
Today, most healthcare professionals believe that a migraine begins when hyperactive nerve cells send out impulses to the trigeminal nerve, causing it to send out compounds that irritate the blood vessels on the surface of the brain, which then begin to swell. In turn, the blood vessels send signals to the part of the brain that processes pain.
Migraines often run in families. People with migraines may be affected by certain migraine triggers, such as fatigue, bright lights, weather changes, among other factors.
