Migraine Pain Treatment with Low Level Laser Therapy


LLLT / Acupuncture Treatment

The common failure in migraine conventional treatment globally and its response to low-level laser therapy, also called cold laser, is well appreciated in science. It has an enormous effect on reducing pain and improving the quality of life by stimulating the nervous system in favor of human body (acupuncture) and improving the circulation in local tissues (laser therapy). It also releases the spasms of the tight muscles like a release of trigger points. The anti-inflammatory effect produced by laser therapy also provides the site of pain, an opportunity to repair tissue, and thus improve mobility.


A migraine can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, generally on just one side of the head. Nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound may be felt along with it.

Migraine attacks can lead to significant pain for hours to days. The pain may be very severe and can restrict your daily activities.
Warning symptoms called aura may occur before or along with a headache. These can be flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling on one side of the face or in the arm or leg.

Some migraines can be prevented and be made less painful with the help of medications. Discuss the different options for treatment with a doctor if you do not find relief. The right medicines, coupled with self-help remedies and changes in lifestyle may prove helpful.


Migraines often begin during childhood, adolescence or early adulthood. Migraines may advance through four stages: prodrome, aura, headache, and post-drome, however, you may not experience all stages.

Even though the causes of migraine causes are still unknown, hereditary and environmental factors seem to have a hand in it. Migraines may be caused by alterations in the brainstem and the way it interacts with the trigeminal nerve, which is a major pathway of pain. Imbalances in brain chemicals including serotonin, which helps in the regulation of pain in the nervous system may also be responsible. Researchers are still studying the role played by serotonin in migraines. Levels of serotonin drop during migraine attacks. This may cause your trigeminal nerve to release substances known as neuropeptides, which travel to your brain’s outer covering also known as the meninges. As a result, one may experience migraine pain.

Consult your doctor right away or go to the emergency room if you experience any of the following signs and symptoms, as these may be indications of a more severe medical problem:
