Migraine Treatment

Approximately 45 millions complain of headaches and/or migraines each year. These episodes often cause severe head pain which can make even the most routine tasks quite difficult. Because every case is different, potential external triggers must be identified before the most effective action can be taken. It is for this reason that Austin Preferred uses a two-step approach to migraine treatment. This involves identifying the external sources of head pain and eliminating them when possible while delivering a direct, effective treatment for internal symptoms.

Migraine Treatment:

Because every case is different, patients suffering from migraines in Austin will begin with an evaluation with our medical providers. The team will then determine if our migraine protocol is a viable option. If approved, the patient will next receive a prescription nasal applicator, which delivers medication into the nasal cavity to provide relief. This medication targets a nerve cluster within the nasal cavity that contributes to head pain.

The second component of the protocol involves testing to identify the patient’s external triggers. Migraine triggers can include stress, dietary changes, hormone changes, lack of sleep and other environmental stimuli. Identifying triggers allows our providers to recommend lifestyle changes that reduce the likelihood of future migraines.

Some health insurance plans cover Migraine Treatment, which is also available at the self pay rate.
