What are Migraines?

Migraines are defined as:

“A migraine is a primary headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe. Typically, the headaches affect one half of the head, are pulsating in nature, and last from a few hours to 3 days. Associated symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound, or smell”.

Migraine Statistics

  • According to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraines affect 39 million men, women and children in the U.S.
  • Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. households includes someone with migraine.
  • Migraine is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world.
  • Every 10 seconds, someone in the U.S. goes to the emergency room complaining of head pain, and approximately 1.2 million visits are for acute migraine attacks.

Non-Drug Treatment – Migraine Treatment with Neurofeedback

An innovative new treatment for migraines is Neurofeedback.  This new non-medicated, non-invasive option for treating migraines. Not only can it stop individual migraines but neurofeedback training can be very helpful in reducing the frequency and intensity of migraines over the long term. Neurofeedback can offer actual relief for people suffering from migraines.

Neurofeedback Training for Migraines

  • The first step in this state-of-the-art therapy is a qEEG brain map. This is a completely non-invasive and painless procedure. It uses EEG (electroencephalography) data and analyzes it to map the functioning of your brain. You can think of qEEG as a stethoscope for your brain.
  • The next step is Neurofeedback Training. Neurofeedback is all in all a reward system that teaches the brain how to perform in a more ideal range. In other words it re-trains your brain for better functioning. Neurofeedback training is completely subconscious. Neurofeedback is a painless and non-invasive procedure.

Montana qEEG brain mapping and neurofeedback training can relieve your migraine symptoms without drugs.

Migraine and Neurofeedback Research

Neurofeedback and biofeedback with 37 migraineurs: a clinical outcome study

– this study was published by Deborah Stokes, Ph.D, a neurofeedback clinician in Alexandria, VA and co-authored with Martha S. Lappin. It demonstrated significant improvement in migraines using neurofeedback. 70% of migraine sufferers had a significant reduction in the frequency of their migraines in this neurofeedback study.
