Migraine Headache Treatment in Overland Park
There are headaches, and then there are migraine headaches along with migraine treatments in Overland Park by Dr. Nigus. Migraines involve more than just head pain, they often also involve nausea, dizziness and extreme sensitivity to light. When a migraine strikes it can debilitate a sufferer for hours, even days, and migraines are a significant factor in lost work days across the US as more than 37 million Americans report suffering from at least the occasional migraine headache.
Usually, those who are struck down with a migraine headache on a regular basis have tried almost everything to ‘solve’ the problem. Pain medications, special migraine diets, trigger testing and more, and yet they still find themselves lying in a dark room in agony on a regular basis.
Reliance on pain medication to treat migraines can be particularly ineffective. While they may provide a measure of relief during an active migraine regular use often leads to what are known as medication-overuse headaches.
Medication-overuse headaches occur when medications stop relieving pain and begin to cause headaches themselves. The temptation then is to take even more medication, leading to a troubling cycle that can be hard to break
Avenues that many migraine sufferers don’t think to explore are physical forms of treatment like chiropractic and acupuncture. Yet, as an increasing body of research is finding, these treatments can be very effective and can provide the kind of lasting relief that every migraine sufferer is hoping for.
