Migraine Treatments

What are Migraines?

A Chronic Headache Disorder

Migraines are a type of headache disorder that can cause severe throbbing pain – typically on one side of the head.  Oftentimes, migraines are accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, aura (visual disturbances), vomiting, sensitivity to light and to sound. 


Migraine attacks can last from 4 to 72 hours/several days if they are left untreated. Depending on the person, they can occur regularly or every once in a while. Some people may also experience pain on both sides of the head with other associated symptoms. 

Possible Causes of Migraines

When to See a Doctor

If you regularly experience head aches with migraine symptoms, keep a log of your attacks and your specific symptoms.


Migraines often go undiagnosed or untreated, so it is important to see a doctor if you feel you may be experiencing migraines. 

Treatment Options

The various treatment options we currently offer for Migraine Disorders.

Injection Treatments

Injection of Neuromodulating medications are now used to treat and prevent migraines by interrupting the pathway of pain from the brain and surrounding nerves. An example of this medication is Botox. This can be a helpful treatment for patients experiencing regular migraines.


There are now various medication treatments that can be used for acute attacks as well as preventative treatment. Each work a little differently by blocking a certain protein or pain-causing source from the brain.

Lifestyle Changes

In addition to above treatments targeting the pain, lifestyle changes may be appropriate for those patients experiencing migraines due to certain triggers. Examples of changes may include physical activity, diet changes, sleep adjustments, and more.
