Migraines are often times so much more than head pain! For many people, migraine pain is accompanied by visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face. Migraines, and other headache disorders, are the #1 pain related complaint WORLDWIDE. Most people will never discover a root cause for this often debilitating neurological condition. However there is HOPE! Neurofeedback uses the brain’s own ability to change and heal, called neuroplasticity, to break the cycle of headaches in a drug-free and noninvasive way.
Medication overuse is the leading cause of episodic or acute headaches, which become chronic. Only 25% of sufferers respond migraine preventation medications.
Through the use of qEEG technology, researchers have found that migraine and other chronic headache sufferers frequently have excessive levels of beta and high beta (gamma) brainwaves. By encouraging the brain to make less of these brainwaves, most headache sufferers see more than a 50% decrease in headache frequency after neurofeedback! The benefits don’t stop there though… following neurofeedback chronic headache sufferers also report decreased insomnia, depression, anxiety, and more.
1 in 4 households include a migraine sufferer, making it the 3rd most prevalent condition in the US.
