Are Migraines Affecting Your Quality of Life?



http://thegrio.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/migraine_headache2-e1338814645740.jpg?w=399
According to the National Migraine Association, migraine disease is recognized as a neurological condition which affects 30 million Americans.

Many people who suffer from disabling migraine headaches have tried everything, including medication, various conventional types of treatments, and multiple visits to the doctor in search of relief. If you haven't been able to experience any relief, PLEASE READ ON!

Are You Tired Of Searching? There Is Hope!
Migraines are classified as a vascular headache. This means that during the pre-headache phase the blood vessels constrict, and the headache begins when vascular dilation occurs. This phase may be accompanied by mood or energy level changes and a feeling of depression or fatigue.

There are several types of migraines. The pain is usually accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light. The two most prevalent types of migraines are with or without aura. Auras are the premonition that a headache is coming.

People who experience aura with migraines may have visual effects such as flashing lights or blurred vision. They may also experience confusion, with numbness in the face and extremities.


Discover the Most Effective Form of Therapy for Headache/Migraine Pain Relief
The key to experiencing relief is to address the root cause of the problem. Many healthcare practitioners are just treating the symptoms of the headache, which will only lead to temporary relief of the pain.

Craniosacral therapy can be a very effective form of treatment for the patient suffering from migraine pain.
The Craniosacral system is made up of the bones of your head, sacrum and membranes. These membranes attach to the bones and surround the brain and spinal cord. Within these membranes flows the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The function of this fluid is to protect the brain and spinal cord from trauma, deliver nutrients to the central nervous system, and remove waste products from the brain and spinal cord. It is detoxifying the environment of the nervous system. The brain and spinal cord make up our central nervous system and are responsible for every system in our body. What does this mean? It means that any type of restrictions in the craniosacral system can have a significant impact on the functioning of your central nervous system and the overall health of your body.

An example of this would be falling on your tail bone. Not only can it cause lower back pain, but also over time, it can have an adverse effect on the head end of the craniosacral system. Quite often I have seen people develop chronic headaches after a fall, and in addition, develop chronic pain in other parts of their body.

How Can Craniosacral Therapy Help With My Headaches?
Craniosacral Therapy helps to release restrictions and tensions throughout these membranes that attach to the inside of the skull and spinal cord. It helps to take pressure off the central nervous system and allows for the proper flow of the cerebrospinal fluid. The goal is to correct and create balance where there may be dysfunction within the craniosacral system. Removing any restrictions within the meninges (spinal cord membranes) can effectively help release and prevent the pain of headaches and migraines.

Research has shown that these meningeal membranes and fascia (connective tissue) are the only pain-sensitive tissues in the brain. Therefore, these restrictions can cause a significant amount of pressure on the blood vessels. In addition, pressure on the brain from surrounding fascia can cause sensory neurons to signal messages to the higher brain center; hence these pain receptors can create the migraine pain.

At times, Myofascial Release may be utilized in conjunction with CranioSacral Therapy in treating headaches and migraines. This is a manual technique that releases connective tissue called fascia.

Fascia is a tough connective tissue that surrounds and attaches to the muscle, bone, tissue, and every cell in the body. The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by this fascia. This fascia can become tight and restricted which can contribute to headaches and migraines, as seen with postural deficits and poor spinal alignment.
Imagine how you'll feel when you're enjoying your life headache free!
