Migraines can cause excruciating pain, vomiting, nausea and sensitivity to light or noise. Sufferers are often unable to go about daily tasks such as driving or going to work. Women are also more likely than men to suffer from migraines. The condition is relatively common and is typically treated with medication and lifestyle changes.
Some sufferers are lucky because their migraine headaches are mild or infrequent. However, for others, migraines can strike several times a week. Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness provides treatment and education on migraines and possible triggers, allowing our patients to find some reprieve from the condition.
Treatment & Lifestyle
Headache medications such as acetaminophen can relieve the symptoms of migraines; however, excessive use of medication can reduce their efficiency. Other medications include triptans that alter brain chemistry to prevent migraines and anti-emetics to help with nausea. Medications are normally used in conjunction with dietary changes to identify migraine triggers.
Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness concentrates on assessing patient lifestyles and diet, as well as providing therapeutic treatments such as massage. Most migraine sufferers see a significant reduction in attacks when they exercise more, have a regular sleep cycle, and cut out triggers such as chocolate, caffeine and alcohol.
At Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness we closely monitor our patients and encourage you to keep a record of your migraine attacks, including possible triggers. We conduct a complete lifestyle assessment which allows us to recommend beneficial changes. Focusing on your health and wellness is especially important as a migraine victim, so we will seek to help you make positive changes in your life that will reduce the severity or number of migraines from which you suffer.
