Migraines are the number one neurological disorder in the United States. Migraines are a type of headache usually one-sided, commonly described as throbbing or pulsating and may be proceeded by an aura. One may also experience nausea, weakness and light and sound sensitivity. Many times, migraines are debilitating and cause the sufferer to have to stop everything and go lay down in a dark quite room.
Recent advances in our understanding of migraines suggest that they are caused by central brain sensitization. Central sensitization causes the brain to become more sensitive to the external environment (i.e., light and sound) and an increased susceptibility to pain. This means the brain is not functioning at its most optimal level.
A functional neurological assessment will evaluate the integrity of all brain areas, allowing us to pinpoint the specific location of dysfunction in each migraine patient. It's well understood that migraines are multifaceted. Therefore, our doctors may also perform metabolic assessments, analyze lab work, and address diet and lifestyle. Our goal is to create a personalized treatment plan that helps to maximize your quality of life and reduce symptoms.
