The 3 Benefits of IV Infusion Treatment For Migraines

Migraine pain can be so intense that people feel overwhelmed and unable to perform everyday tasks. People suffering from migraines or cluster headaches are often saddled with disabling pain. These individuals can also suffer from photophobia, when light intensifies the pain. Some experience nausea or vomiting due to the severe pain. While not life threatening, migraines can seriously impinge your quality of life.

Patients should understand and take their own notes about what brings on their headaches. While every patient is different, studies show that certain cheese, chocolates or wine can be a trigger in some. Avoiding these triggers helps prevent migraines before they start.

Sometimes over the counter and prescription pain medications provide little relief. In these situations there are intravenous medication combinations that can be administered in doctors’ offices that are effective and cost efficient.

If you haven’t yet tried IV infusions for treatment of migraines, here are 3 reasons why you should:

  1. Fast relief through a blend of medications designed to treat pain, nausea, and inflammation simultaneously. The drugs used in headache infusions target the proteins that initiate the cascade of events that cause migraines. No other treatment can do that. The infusion subdues the overactive nerve endings to calm the irritation that initiates a migraine attack. Once those proteins are blocked, it stops of the cascade of events that result in migraine pain.
  2. It is time and cost effective. Waking up early with intractable headache pain and resorting to going to a hospital can result in hours long wait times and a very large bill. Scheduling an IV headache infusion will result in much time and money saved as they can be administered in the doctors office. In office treatments usually only take about an hour.
  3. IV headache infusion treatments have been shown to remain effective for as long as one month after the treatment. Not experiencing pain for that long is a dream come true for chronic migraine sufferers.

The experienced neurologists at Complete Neurological Care have studied pain and headache management and have the ability to diagnose and recommend treatment for chronic headache sufferers. Schedule an IV infusion appointment today. Our knowledgeable team is here to help you feel better from your very first visit.
