“It’s like we have our daughter back – and the person she was meant to be. We feel so indebted to Cerebrum for the help that they’ve given her.”
“It went from maybe a headache a little bit to the entire day…[After treatment at Cerebrum] I don’t have a headache…we all got super excited!”
It may start as a small headache or throbbing pain that feels more like a hangover or annoyance than anything else. But as the days go on the intensity of your head pain grows until every day feels like the world’s worst migraine. It can interrupt every aspect of your daily life, causing light/sound sensitivity, dizziness, nausea, fatigue or other symptoms. It kills your motivation and drains your energy.
The worst part is that even if a doctor or headache specialist or neurologist provides a diagnosis of “chronic daily headaches” there is often very little they do to treat the headaches aside from prescribing another medication.
At Cerebrum, it is our job to help you determine the cause of your headaches, and to treat you, train you and teach you to improve and manage your headaches. With appropriate care, it is often possible for our patients to return to a headache free life.
If you or a loved one are struggling, don’t wait any longer. See if Cerebrum has treatment options for you.
One or two days before a migraine, you may notice subtle changes that signify an oncoming migraine, including:
This stage may occur before or during a migraine. Auras are nervous system symptoms that are usually visual disturbances, such as flashes of light. They can also be touching sensations, movement or speech disturbances. Most people experience migraine headaches without aura. The symptoms of an aura begin gradually and build up over several minutes and then commonly last for 20 to 60 minutes.
Vision loss or visual phenomena (such as seeing various shapes, bright spots or flashes of light)
Speech or language problems
Pins and needles sensations in an arm or leg
Untreated, a migraine usually lasts four to 72 hours, but the frequency with which a headache occurs varies from person to person. Some may experience a headache several times a month, while others are much less. You may experience the following symptoms in the attack phase of a migraine.
Pain on one side or both sides of your head
Pulsating, throbbing quality
Lightheadedness, sometimes followed by fainting
Sensitivity to light, sounds and sometimes smells
Nausea and vomiting
The final phase of a migraine is known as the postdrome stage and occurs after a migraine attack. During this time you may feel drained and exhausted, though some people report feeling somewhat euphoric.
Our multi-disciplinary care team relies on evidence-based diagnostics to pinpoint the impacted areas of the brain that are not functioning properly. We use the information from these measured diagnostics to develop a customized program for each patient and an individualized care plan that combines intensive in-office therapies and simple in-home exercises to achieve measurable results and maximize quality of life.
Through evidence-based diagnostics, individualized care, and breakthrough therapies, our team at Cerebrum Health Centers works to maximize results while refining your treatment plan based on your progress. We believe every patient has a different story and, therefore, needs a unique treatment plan. By combining these things, we can create a plan of progress and improvement that many had previously given up on.
