How can neurofeedback help with migraines?

Migraines greatly affect those who experience them regularly. They interfere with productivity and can greatly diminish the quality of life. Migraines can have many origins such as diet or sleep, but can also occur due to a predisposition within the brain. In the brain, there are specific waves related to cognitive function. If the medical intervention hasn’t helped your migraine headaches or you’d like to discontinue or avoid using the medication, neurofeedback could be your answer. Neurofeedback training is very helpful for reducing both the frequency and the intensity of migraines. By balancing the brain so it operates better, headaches go away, occur less frequently, or are less intense.

In one study on neurofeedback efficacy on migraines, they found that 98% of patients had either stopped getting migraines or saw a 50% reduction in the number of migraines experienced following QEEG-guided neurofeedback. Another study prompted similar results with patients seeing a significant reduction in the frequency of migraine headaches but also saw the effects last beyond 14 months after treatments were discontinued.
