Migraines are not just ordinary headaches. They are characterized by a throbbing or pulsing sensation, typically on one side of the head, and can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can last for hours or even days, often having a profound impact on a person’s quality of life. Alliance Orthopedics understands the debilitating effects of migraines and offers comprehensive treatment options to help patients manage their symptoms.
Migraines are multifactorial, meaning they can arise from a combination of different factors. These factors can be environmental, genetic, or even hormonal. While the exact cause of migraines is still unknown, certain triggers can increase the likelihood of experiencing a migraine. These triggers include:
- Certain foods, such as caffeine, alcohol, and aged cheeses
- Lack of sleep or changes in sleep patterns
- Hormonal changes in women
- Environmental factors, such as weather changes or bright lights
It is important to identify your specific triggers and try to avoid them to prevent or minimize the occurrence of migraines. If you are unsure what your triggers may be, Alliance Orthopedics can help you identify them through a thorough examination and consultation. From there, we can work together to develop a personalized treatment plan.
