Migraine Headache Therapy
Migraine headaches affect more than 37 million Americans. Women are affected 3 times more than men. It is one of the most common causes of ER visits, time off, and debilitating pain. People who suffer from migraines or chronic headaches often respond very well to ketamine therapy.
A Common Problem
Migraines affect so many millions, and are serious impediment to living anormal life. They are one of the most common causes of ER visits, time off, and debilitating pain. They can last 4-72 hours and are typically due to changes in the brain or the surrounding blood vessels. Symptoms often build gradually such that you often know when a migraine is coming.
Migraine attacks often have a trigger that initiates that change which can be as simple as stress, chemical imbalances, hormone changes, or even food like chocolate or alcohol or lack of food.
Treatment includes lifestyle changes including regular exercise, behavioral therapy, avoiding triggers or stress, and developing coping skills to decrease the number and severity of attacks. Prevention and treatment can include pain relievers such as aspirin, tylenol, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Sometimes your doctor will guide you with prescription medications like triptans, alkaloids, anti-nausea medication, blood pressure medication, antidepressants or anti-seizure medication, Vitamin B, or even opioids.

Ketamine For Treatment Resistant Migraines
People who suffer from migraines or chronic headaches often respond very well to ketamine therapy. Often you can build up tolerance to the medications or treatments mentioned. In a 2016 study, they found people with treatment resistant migraines had benefit from ketamine therapy. As with other neuropathic conditions, ketamine infusion therapy can provide a reset to help the body normalize. Then with customized vitamin infusions we can help strengthen your system. The goal is to reduce the number and severity of the headaches so you can get back to life without the fear of the beginnings of a new migraine.
