Migraine is one of the more common conditions we treat with low level laser therapy. Also known as cold laser therapy, the treatment reduces the nerve activity in the upper neck region which can stimulate the migraine center. Many patients choose laser therapy because they report that either their medication does not alleviate the pain or that there can be too many side-effects from medication, including weight gain. Further, long term medication use can cause a build up that can lead to other medical problems.
Migraine treatment with cold laser therapy will generally include treating both the neck and scalp areas and can be performed on patients of all ages. At Quantum we have also developed a pain physiotherapy migraine treatment which is focused on stabilising your central nervous system before considering low impact mobility exercises designed to prevent migraines.
