How Can Neurofeedback Help My Migraine Headaches?
Migraines create a state of stress in your brain which can negatively impact your brain wave functioning. If the stress that triggers a migraine continues, the response becomes chronic and it is harder for your brain to regulate or normalize. Medications provide temporary relief for pain by blocking pain receptors, but do not address the underlying brainwave imbalance that contributes to the pain. Neurofeedback, or brain training, is exercise for the brain that retrains the brain to create new patterns and responses to incoming triggers. The duration, frequency & intensity of the headaches shift & the result is a calmer, more relaxed brain that is resilient and has fewer flare ups and symptoms. When balance is restored to your brain, your sleep & health improves.
