Dr. Gary with laser equipmentIf you’ve ever had a migraine, you know exactly how debilitating they can be. You might have to miss work, events or are unable to be with your family due to the pain. Finding the relief you need is simple with the Class IV laser at CHIRO & LASER Pain Relief Center of St. Augustine.

The Causes of Migraines

A migraine is a form of a headache that involves throbbing pain. Typically, it is accompanied by dizziness, sensitivity to light, smell and sound, nausea and vomiting.

The conditions that cause migraines are referred to as “triggers.” They may include hormones, foods, stress, bright lights, medications, physical activity, drinks or changes in your environment. You may have a migraine for a couple of hours or for days.

The Symptoms of Migraines

You are more likely to have a migraine if someone in your family has a history of them. Women are affected more than men, and hormonal changes can lead to migraines. A couple of days before your migraine, there are some signs you may notice, such as

  • Food cravings
  • Hyperactivity
  • Irritability
  • Neck stiffness
  • Migraines with an aura

An aura is a visual disturbance that can last for 20 minutes to an hour. You may see various shapes, flashes or light or bright spots. A loss of vision can occur, along with numbness in the arms and legs and difficulty speaking.

Address Your Migraine With Laser Therapy

We provide Class IV laser therapy. This advanced technology enhances your healing and relieves your pain and the inflammation. Your pain will be reduced by having fewer neuronal impulses and upping the amount of endorphins released. Your inflammation is addressed by reducing inflammatory factors and dilating lymphatics that ease your edema. Your healing is boosted from a greater blood flow, which releases cytokines and increases collagen production and fibroblast activity.
