Migraine is a chronic disorder characterized by moderate to severe headaches, possibly triggered by different types of nourishments and state of tension in the posterior head muscles. The cause of migraine headache is unknown, but the most supported theory is that it is related to hyper excitability of the cerebral cortex and/or abnormal control of pain neurons in the trigeminal nucleus of the brainstem.
A typical migraine headache is unilateral (affecting one half of the head). Typical symptoms include nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to light and sound. In order to recognize what type of headache that you are suffering from, it might be good to keep a diary of your pain attacks. Bring it to us so that the we together can find out what triggers the headache.
Manual treatment might help and prevent the headache from triggering. This means that many patients – but not everyone – get treated both in preventive use and in the beginning of a migraine attack.
