Headaches & Migraines

Neurofeedback for Headaches & Migraines has become an effective alternative treatment. Brain training can reduce headaches and associated pain, and reduce or even eliminate medication taken for it. It has the ability to minimize the frequency and severity of painful headaches. 

What are Migraines?


Headaches and Migraines are an extremely prevalent neurological disease, affecting 39 million men, women and children in the United States. Doctors don’t understand exactly what causes migraines, however, studies have shown changes in the level of serotonin could be to blame. Electrical activity in the brain could be another culprit for painful headaches. 

Neurofeedback for Headaches & Migraines


Those who turn to alternative treatment for migraines, such as Neurofeedback, for migraines often have a long history of continual headache and migraine pain, with little success from pharmaceutical treatments.

How Does Neurofeedback Help Headaches and Migraines?


Neurofeedback therapy can be effective in reducing both the frequency and intensity of migraines. Through the use of auditory and visual feedback and images, a client can exercise and retrain their brain to overcome electrical irregularities  to improve the way your brain functions. Brain training results in optimal brain balance and function, so headaches occur less frequently, are less intense, and in some cases, even go away.

 

Unlike medication, which has been reported to have numerous side effects, Neurofeedback therapy essentially has no side effects. The most common side effect reported from clients is feeling tired after a session.

 

Side effects for medications for migraines include, but not limited to the following:

  • insomnia

  • dizziness

  • flushing

  • tingling

  • sleepiness

  • fatigue

  • depression

  • nausea
