Migraine and Headaches: PBM Showing Positive Results

Even more articles are being released from various patients and companies using this ‘state of the art’ technology of Photo-bio-moduation. Headache and migraine sufferers, who are tired of popping the pain pills, can finally have sigh of relief knowing that their discomfort can be alleviated with a modernised treatment. This specific treatment is known as Intranasal Photo-bio-modulation Therapy.

The Sphenopalatine Ganglion

A ganglion is a group of nerve axons. Nerves, as you may already know, ‘are like wires that connect the brain to the rest of the body in both directions. The sphenopalatine ganglion has several connections to the areas believed to have a causative factor in migraines.’ The cause of these sever headaches and migraines still, somehow, are unknown. 

The sphenopalatine ganglion has connections to three areas that are all believed to be related to headaches. Those areas are meeting points of the brain so this is the area which could be the source of headaches.

SCIENCEY INFORMATION CONCERNING THE NERVES 

The superior cervical sympathetic ganglion, trigeminal nerve via connections with the maxillary nerve, and the suboccipital nerves at the base of the skull. They are all connected to the sphenopalatine ganglion which is the closest nerve to the outside of the body.

PBM

Intranasal photo-bio-modulation (administered through the nostrils) pumps light energy into the nerve by firing up ATP production. Adenosine triphosphate(ATP) is a complex organic chemical often called the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer. Simply think of the process of photo-bio-modulation as jumping the nerve batteries. The sphenopalatine ganglion has been the site of nasal opioid delivery for treatment of headaches. In some experiments, cocaine was used.

DISCLAIMER: We are not recommending the use of cocaine to treat migraines or headaches.

Photo-bio-modulation treatment, and the use of Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)  shows great promise in the treatment of migraines and headaches. There will be more reports on this in the future. Watch this space!
