Medical migraine treatment in Lausanne
The diagnosis of migraines, chronic headaches, Arnold's neuralgia, vascular algia, trigeminal neuralgia etc. can be frightening.
Every patient should be aware that there are a number of medicinal (i.e., drug-based) approaches that can significantly reduce pain during a migraine attack. When these drugs are effective, and you do not suffer too many side-effects (sometimes extreme fatigue, general malaise, pain linked to excessive use of medication, nausea, vomiting, etc.), you can manage your attacks well just by taking a few drugs sporadically.
You should also bear in mind that some migraines, typically occipital migraines or Arnold's neuralgia, respond well to physical treatments such as osteopathy and physiotherapy. In this case, painful muscle “triggers” or nodules caused by chronic shortening of the hanging muscles in the nape of the neck (the trapezius and sternocleidomastoid in particular) are treated with targeted massage or stretching movements by specialized practitioners.
Other strategies can also help in the day-to-day treatment of migraines, such as a low-sugar diet (ketogenic diet), for its anti-inflammatory and mitochondrial-stimulating effects.
There are also natural supplements with proven efficacy against migraines. Magnesium is one of the most important of these supplements. Most of the world’s population suffers from a deficiency of Magnesium, a mineral element needed to stabilize many of the body's 300-plus reactions. There are several other essential supplements for the treatment of migraines, including CoenzymeQ10, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Riboflavin, GrandeCamomile and Petasites. These treatments can be considered as natural background treatments.
When, unfortunately, these drugs are not enough, or you need to take too much (more than the maximum recommended dose), or you can't tolerate the side effects, our specialized Global Medical Institute team will evaluate you for definitive minimally invasive surgical treatment.
