Migraine Treatment

A migraine can cause debilitating pain, but many patients are finding relief through alternative treatments like hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Can hyperbaric oxygen therapy help patients recover from plastic surgery?

A migraine is not “just” a headache. You don’t just “push through” the pain – not when the pain is doing its best to push through you. There is no cure for migraines, so treatment has traditionally focused on pain relief and preventing (or extending the time between) additional attacks. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is showing a lot of promise as an alternative migraine treatment.

Migraines are believed to be a neurological condition caused by an inflammation that is the result of the release of neuropeptides. This inflammation can make the patient more sensitive to stimulation while decreasing their pain thresholds. Using HBOT as a treatment for migraines can potentially reduce the inflamed areas and help relieve the constant, throbbing pain.

The exact pathogenesis of a migraine headache is unknown, but the current theories suggest that alternative treatments can be effective for pain relief.

One theory suggests that waves of brain cell activity trigger the release of serotonin, which narrows the blood vessels and restrict the level of oxygen reaching the brain, causing a migraine.

Reduced blood flow leads to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) and could potentially change the brain’s chemistry.

Hypoxia can be addressed with HBOT therapy since the patient will receive 100% pure oxygen at increased pressure so it can reach oxygen-starved areas and help reduce swelling and pain.

HBOT has not been shown to prevent migraines or reduce their frequency, but they have been observed to provide very fast relief to patients currently suffering from a headache.

Migraines are estimated to affect around 39 million Americans. This is a serious condition that requires a serious solution.
