In this article you will learn how Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help you if you suffer from migraine headaches.
If you’ve taken your migraine woes to a physician, you’ve probably been given a prescription to a strong, possibly addictive, pain reliever. And it probably works. Until it wears off. And then you have to take another.
When traditional Western medical methods don’t ease migraine pain, many patients explore alternative approaches to treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can help.
HBOT involves delivering 100% pure oxygen to the patient in a pressurized chamber. This method of oxygen delivery increases the body’s ability to fight pain and increases the rate of healing.

1. How do Migraines Cause Pain?
Migraine headaches reduce the flow of blood to the brain, causing pain and altering brain chemistry.
2. How does HBOT Reduce Migraine Pain?
HBOT increases the amount of oxygen and blood flow to the brain, helping the brain build defenses against migraine headaches.
3. How did HBOT Treatment Help One of Our Patients?
In 2011, patient Lisa Q. came to us seeking relief from migraine pain. She did 20 treatments, twice a day, five days a week for two weeks.
The treatments worked! As of 2019, she continues to be free of migraine pain.
“I used to have migraines almost every day. Over-the-counter pain relievers did nothing for me. The pain was debilitating, and I had to use a strong prescription medication, Imitrex, to get just a little bit of relief. I did 20 hyperbaric oxygen treatments and have not had a migraine since. The heavy, hard, long migraines are gone.” - Lisa Q.
Bottom line is, you won't know how good it feels to not have migraines until you don't have them anymore. And HBOT could be the answer.
