Migraine is one of the more common conditions we treat with laser therapy. Also known as cold laser, 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 1) their medication does not alleviate the pain and 2) 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 will generally include treating both the neck and scalp areas and patients of all ages can be treated. At Quantum we have also developed a pain physio migraine treatment which is focussed on stabilising your central nervous system before considering low impact mobility exercises designed to prevent migraines.
