Rise Wellness Centers

What is a migraine?

A migraine is a collection of disabling neurological symptoms that causes severe headaches. Migraine headaches are usually located on one side of the head. Other migraine symptoms include:


  • Sensory sensitivity including light, sounds, and odors
  • Blurred vision, auras, halos, flashes of light, or blind spots
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Nausea and vomiting


Migraines usually last for several hours or even days. The with pain and symptoms are often so severe you can’t complete your regular responsibilities.


What causes migraines?

The exact cause of migraines isn’t fully understood. However, doctors and medical researchers have found links between migraines and your brain chemistry including serotonin, which helps regulate your mood and how your brain interprets pain. Migraines are also caused by an oversensitive sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) nerve cluster.

Migraines are often triggered by environmental triggers such as certain foods, medications, or exercise, as well as internal factors such as hormonal changes and stress.

Women are more likely than men to experience migraines, and your risk is higher if you have a family history of migraines. You can get migraines at any age, but they usually manifest during adolescence and last through early adulthood.


How are migraines treated?

The doctors at Rise Wellness Centers create customized treatment plans to relieve your migraines and use ketamine infusion therapy as the foundation of your care. Ketamine infusions reset your NMDA receptors which improve your brain chemistry and alleviates many migraine symptoms.

The team at Rise Wellness Centers have had success in treating patients with migraines. Many patients report a decrease in symptom severity and migraine frequency. Some have even stopped having migraines altogether.


What should I expect during ketamine infusion therapy?

Your doctor will recommend a customized series of ketamine infusion sessions. They monitor your symptoms throughout your treatment and can adjust your infusions as needed.

The ketamine infusion sessions are very relaxing and therapeutic. You relax in a comfortable chair for approximately 60 minutes while you receive your infusion through an IV drip. Floating or tingling sensations are common, but usually subside soon after your infusion is complete. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home after your treatment.
