Natural Migraine Treatment with Myofascial Release
What Is a Migraine?
A migraine is a strong headache that often comes with nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light. It can last hours or days.
Migraine headaches are a symptom of a condition known as migraine. Doctors don’t know the exact cause of migraine headaches, although they seem to be related to changes in your brain and to your genes. Your parents can even pass down migraine triggers like fatigue, bright lights, or weather changes.
For many years, scientists thought migraines happened because of changes in blood flow in the brain. Most scientists now think this can contribute to the pain of a migraine headache but is not what starts it.
Current thinking is that a migraine likely starts when overactive nerve cells send out signals that trigger your trigeminal nerve, which gives sensation to your head and face. This cues your body to release chemicals like serotonin and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). CGRP makes blood vessels in the lining of your brain swell. Then, neurotransmitters cause inflammation and pain.
Myofascial Release as Migraine treatment
After years of unsuccessful pharmaceutical treatments, traditional medicine started looking into alternative and complementary treatments for migraine headache relief. Listing Myofascial release as one of the most successful preventions and holistic treatment methods for migraines. Myofascial release is not new for holistic practitioners. Myofascial Release has been one of the most used treatments for migraines as well as other types of body pains.
Myofascial Release is effective as a natural Migraine treatment because the fascia surrounds all structures in the body as a connective/support system. When we treat the fascia tension, we use Myofascial Release the John Barnes Approach which consists of gentle application of sustained pressure into the fascial restrictions. This essential time element has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Fascial Restrictions can exert tremendous tensile forces in the nerve system and other pain-sensitive structures when restricted. This pressure can create all the symptoms due to nerve irritation. Taking care of the pressure causing the nerve irritation and hypersensitivity, as well as blood vessel swelling recognized as the migraine cause will take care of all migraine symptoms.
