Migraines Q&A

Migraine Management: Triggers and Finding Effective Treatment

Migraines are a severe type of headache that can cause disruptive symptoms such as:

  • Severe head pain (one or both sides)
  • Light sensitivity
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Odor sensitivity
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Auras (sensory disturbances)

Migraines can last as long as several days, and they often have a “hangover” period afterward. 

Occasional migraines are already disruptive enough but if you have migraines on a frequent basis, they can become disabling without treatment. 

If you have to cancel appointments, miss work, or isolate yourself due to migraines, you need relief. InnovateMed Medical Group offers comprehensive migraine care, with immediate treatment available.

Osteopathic Approach for the Treatment of Migraines

The osteopathic medical approach is the central focus of medical care at InnovateMed Medical Group. Osteopathy is a noninvasive approach to wellness. 

Osteopathic physicians have extensive training involving the interconnected nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems, providing a uniquely in-depth understanding of how and why diseases like migraines develop. 

While some other doctors prescribe pain medication as the initial treatment for migraines, that approach doesn’t really account for the fact that migraines are a long-term (chronic) disorder. 

Treating a chronic condition with temporary fixes, like medication, just isn’t effective. That method puts you into a cycle of taking medication for temporary relief, the eventual return of pain, and starting the cycle anew.

The osteopathic approach focuses instead on determining the root cause of your migraines and working to resolve it. Following a detailed evaluation, your treatment may include:

  • Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT)

OMT is often the cornerstone of pain management at InnovateMed Medical Group. This type of treatment involves using hands-on techniques like pressure, stretching, and resistance to resolve imbalances and disturbances within your nerves, muscles, and skeletal systems. 

OMT for migraines typically involves specific movements focused on the lower jaw, temples, back of the skull, and other areas involved in migraines. 

  • Supplemental treatments

Other treatments can supplement OMT to prevent migraines effectively, such as preventive migraine medicines, trigger point injections, and lifestyle changes. Often, a combination of several approaches provides the best migraine prevention and relief.

We at InnovateMed Medical Group recommend a personalized treatment program that accurately targets the source of your migraines so you can have lasting pain relief. Call InnovateMed Medical Group or book your appointment online today.
