BESANA Health & Wellness is focused on getting to the root cause of problems rather than just masking symptoms. So when it comes to helping migraine sufferers, providing short-term relief with pain medication is not our primary focus, though it may be included in your personal treatment plan, depending on your needs. Our goal is to work holistically to improve the underlying causes of your condition so you can enjoy long-term relief.
Here’s a quick look at the possible components of migraine treatment at BESANA Health & Wellness.
For decades one of the most effective treatments for long-term relief from migraines is improving biomechanics and alignment of the articulations in the spine. Did you know there are 54 moving joints in the neck alone, and around these joints are primary intersections (ganglion) of the central nervous system which control pain, amongst other functions. Restoring function through manipulation helps restore the feedback loop that can eliminate unwanted pain, improve mobility, improve posture, and increase function.
2. Laser (low-level laser therapy)
Over the last 20 years, laser therapy has achieved multiple FDA clearances through double-blind studies, demonstrating its ability to be one of the most effective treatments for migraines and pain, along with dissipating inflammation, improving circulation, and decreasing swelling. Low-level laser therapy has proven to be a totally pain-free and simple alternative for headache treatment for many patients.
A traditional wellness solution of Chinese medicine, acupuncture involves inserting tiny needles into specific areas of the body to adjust the flow of energy, relieve stress and mitigate pain. Acupuncture can help to provide immediate pain relief for many migraine sufferers and can also be used as a preventative wellness treatment for reducing stress and other migraine triggers.
4. Testing for food sensitivities, allergies, hormonal imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, toxicity, thyroid issues
Migraines can be caused by all kinds of undetected imbalances in the body, such as food allergies and sensitivities, inefficient nutrients to support high levels of stress, and hormonal changes. We will perform special diagnostic tests to determine if your migraines are the result of any such trigger and help you find relief by addressing your health issues.
5. Examining your lifestyle
Stress, for example, is a common migraine culprit. What does your typical day look like? Are you like the Energizer bunny who keeps going and going to such an extent that you can’t be bothered to eat or hydrate properly throughout your day? Simply, a lack of water can initiate a migraine. Have you advanced into burnout syndrome to the point you can barely find the energy to shower? Any extremes deserve a closer look so we can pinpoint or rule out any stressors which can be easily circumvented with the proper modifications to your lifestyle.
