Migraines

Migraines manifest as a neurological disorder characterized by an intense, pulsating headache, frequently concentrated on one side of the head. Unique features setting migraines apart from other headaches include nausea, vomiting, and heightened sensitivity to sound and light. The intensity of the pain often hinders the performance of daily tasks, resulting in limitations. Notably, migraine attacks stand as a primary contributor to disability and work-related absence in developed nations

Less migraines - more from life.

Treatment Options for Migraines

Acupuncture Treatment

One of the most commonly used treatment methods for migraine treatment in western countries is acupuncture. Acupuncture has the ability to increase the release of endorphins in the body which act as powerful pain relievers. At the same time, acupuncture also activates calming chemicals in the body.

Botulinum Toxin Treatment

Another treatment method in chronic migraine patients is botulinum toxin treatment, which has been applied since 2010. The frequency and severity of pain can be reduced by applying it to patients who use too many painkillers and are unresponsive to other treatments. This treatment is generally well tolerated and there are no serious side effects.

Dry Needle Therapy

Dry needle therapy is a drug-free, scientific treatment method based on the stimulation of the trigger points in the muscles in different parts of the body using special needles of different sizes.

Migraine Surgery

Migraine surgery is the intervention of the nerve branches located in the forehead, temples, neck and nape root of the migraine-related regions of the brain, and to the vessels and muscles around these nerve branches. With surgery, these anatomical structures may be permanently damaged, nerve endings may be damaged and ‘neuropathic pains’ may occur.

Anti-CGRP Injection

Anti-CGRP Injection

CGRP plays a key role in dilating or widening blood vessels. The injection works to block the sites in and around the brain in place of CRGP or binds directly to CGRP and prevents it from being effective. The effects are not yet known. Medications that lower CRGP may cause side effects that affect your blood pressure and heart.

Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation

The tVNS® auricular vagus stimulation device is a treatment option that provides vagus nerve stimulation through the ear with a smartphone-sized device and a special headset without any surgical intervention.

How does tVNS® treat migraines?

The focus of migraine therapy with tVNS® is the activation of the parasympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous system is always active when we are relaxing or resting and is responsible for cell regeneration and metabolic processes.

The stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system triggers the necessary regeneration processes of inflammatory areas and acts as a recovery accelerator. Neurostimulation with tVNS® is used both as a migraine prophylaxis and during an acute attack.

While drugs are taken orally and thus develop their effect systematically, they are often accompanied by numerous undesirable side effects. Therapy with tVNS® , on the other hand, has the advantage that it activates the parasympathetic system directly by stimulating the vagus nerve on the ear and has very few side effects.

tVNS® has helped hundreds of patients suffering from migraines to reduce or completely eliminate migraines and lead a more self-determined life.

“The idea of treating migraine without medication appealed to me immediately. And now, a year and a half after the first application, I have a completely new quality of life.”​
