Main points about Migraine:
– Migraine usually causes intense throbbing pain on one side of the head. – The pain lasts for hours or even days and many patients suffer greatly with the pain. – Sometimes associated with nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light. – Some patients experience an “aura” preceding the headache which consists of light flashes. – Migraine is three times more common in women than men.
Treatment for migraine: The usual treatment for migraine is (a) taking medicines to treat the pain at the time of the attack (b) taking medicines to prevent an attack.
Unfortunately, many patients do not get adequate relief with these methods. Now, we have a new treatment- tDCS available in Indore only at A4 Clinics. tDCS significantly reduces the number of migraines, duration of attacks and the intensity of pain. tDCS is non-invasive, painless and has no sedating side effects. It is effective when medications and trigeminal nerve stimulation are inadequate. tDCS is also effective for other types of chronic headaches.
Science: It is thought that migraines occur due to over-excitation of the brain cells. tDCS targets the source of migraine by reducing this over-excitation.
