Almost everyone in Lincoln who comes to me with concerns about headaches refers to them at first as migraines. There seems to be a general misconception that a really bad headache is automatically a migraine.

Almost everyone who comes to me with concerns about headaches refers to them at first as migraines. There seems to be a general misconception that a really bad headache is automatically a migraine. In actuality, the vast majority are musculoskeletal headaches. A classic migraine is a horse of a very different color. It is often located on one side of the head only, sometimes preceded by a type of early warning system consisting of a visual aura, often described as flashing lights or tunnel vision. The headache feels like very severe, unrelenting pain and is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to noise and light. There are several variations on this classic pattern. When migraines occur, the affected person usually puts daily activities on hold and often requires Western medications and sleep. It?s always wise to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis of migraine headaches.

I believe that hatha yoga practice can help reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches. One contemporary theory of how migraines occur states that the arteries that feed the brain narrow temporarily due to a variety of factors, stress and muscular tension being two common ones. For a migraine sufferer, there is then a sudden shift in the blood vessels and they abruptly dilate, increasing the blood flow to the head. This sudden shift results in the intense pain of the migraine episode.
