It’s that time of year when the sniffles and sinus headaches set in. Normally these symptoms are associated with the common cold… and come and go within a few days time. But, could it be that you are actually suffering from a migraine too?
A study finds that a condition called rhinitis – frequent nasal congestion and sneezing – is associated with migraines. In fact, researchers have found that people with rhinitis has a higher number of migraines per month than those without the condition.
What does it mean?
Rhinitis and other common cold symptoms are likely migraine triggers. So, if you are a migraine patient and you feel a cold coming on – you’ll want to treat it aggressively to avoid a debilitating migraine episode.
Here at PASADENA PAIN MANAGEMENT, we can NOT treat rhinitis and sinus infections – but we DO treat migraines. We use effective sports therapy techniques, neuroscience, and advanced dental concepts to treat and manage a wide range of migraine conditions.
The in-office treatments involve treatments like massage, ultrasound therapy, a specialized lotion, cold laser therapy, and micro-current treatments. At-home treatments might involve self-massage, heat and ice therapy, and the use of specialized equipment, lotions, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.
