What is Migraine Pain?
A migraine can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours to days, and the pain can be so severe that it interferes with your daily activities. For some people, a warning symptom known as an aura occurs before or with a headache. An aura can include visual disturbances, such as flashes of light or blind spots, or other disturbances, such as tingling on one side of the face or in an arm or leg and difficulty speaking.
Cords of Revitalization utilizes stem cell therapy to help chronic headache and migraine patients find relief. Trying to lead a normal and productive life can be extremely challenging when you are confronted with the disabling symptoms of migraines. Stem cell therapy helps reduces the intensity and frequency of migraines.
Symptoms Of Migraines
The symptoms of an Aura can occur before or during a migraine and are often experienced visually. They can build slowly and usually last between 20-60 minutes. Examples of migraine aura include:

Managing Headaches and Migraines With Stem Cell Therapy
Some patients with chronic, severe migraines have found relief through stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy is useful when battling migraines because of the profound effect stem cells have on inflammation, thus relieving tension and pressure on the brain.
