Characteristics of migraine: Migraine is a periodic recurring headache affecting the entire head or only one half of the head. Migraine pain is paroxysmal, often accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Migraine has a wide variety of forms, as well as a wide range of therapeutic approaches for its treatment. Migraine can have a plethora of causes, most commonly vascular anomalies in the brain (increased irritability, aneurysm, etc.), as well as changes based on disorders of the cervical spine area.
According to vascular theory, the cause is vasoconstriction with hypoxia of the brain and subsequent vasodilation, which leads to pain. Neurovascular theory describes a spreading wave of cortical brain activity depression, while current theories believe that the pain is caused by hypersensitivity and pathological activity of the trigeminal nucleus and its peripheral endings in the meninges. Symptoms of migraine start with prodromes, and an aura, and continue with migraine attack, which may result in status migrenosus. Therapy includes antimigraine drugs (5HT-1B/D agonists), analgesics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, preventive beta blockers, etc.
However, there are also many migraines poorly responsive to treatment that clearly show none of the above causes and yet respond very well to overall detoxification of the body and treatment to support the liver function. This process probably reduces the level of certain substances in circulation, which may trigger vascular responses in the brain vasculature.
Using magnetic therapy in migraine
Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy has a direct influence on the CNS activity, significantly alters metabolic conditions and improves microcirculation. This leads to detoxification and regeneration of the treated tissues and has a major influence on the quality of the blood supply in the treated area, which has a positive effect on the reduction of attacks and migraine pain.
Application of magnetic therapy in migraine
In migraine, analgesic frequencies of 4-6 Hz are applied to the head and cervical spine area for acute problems via a solenoid, while between attacks, we apply 50-81 Hz treatment to the abdomen and liver using a flat applicator and increase fluid intake.
