Migraine Relief Westchester

Migraine Relief Westchester

Patients of Westchester Neurological Consultants have complained that they have spent hundreds of dollars on medications to prevent and treat migraines, without any real results. Now, there’s a better way to control your migraines and headaches. By visiting the Westchester migraine specialists at Westchester Neurological Consultants, our dedicated staff of neurologists will work with you to find ways to reduce, prevent, and ultimately, eliminate migraine headaches.

We aim to make a real life difference and help you live a life migraine and headache-free. A migraine headache is characterized by an intense and pounding pain. Migraines are more typical in women and can be prompted by stress, fatigue, caffeine consumption, irregular sleeping patterns and menstrual cycles. Most migraine sufferers tend to be sensitive to light during headaches, which can trigger nausea and vomiting. Patients complain of dizziness, loss of appetite and sudden fatigue while trying to stand up and walk around when they have a migraine. Some migraine sufferers also experience an “aura,” or a visual impairment before experiencing a migraine.

Treatments for migraines at Westchester Neurological Consultants, your local Yonkers migraine specialists, include trigger point injections, massage therapy, medication management, botox injections, surgical decompression, lifestyle management, and therapuetic nerve blocks.

While over the counter pain medications can relieve the pain of a migraine headache, they won’t stop migraines from happening. If you suffer from debilitating migraines, come visit the neurologists at Westchester Neurological Consultants. They can prescribe prescription strength pain relievers  and abortive/preventive medications that can ward off migraines. For frequent and severe migraine headaches, our doctors may suggest monitoring physiological symptoms to find the trigger of your migraines. From this, our neurologists can teach migraine sufferers how to adjust their physical responses to avoid headaches.

Strokes occur when the blood supply to the brain is suddenly interrupted. Because brain cells no longer receive the oxygen they require to function properly, they begin to die. Visible symptoms of a stroke include sudden weakness or numbness specifically on one side of the body, trouble speaking or understanding speech, sudden difficultly seeing in one or both eyes, sudden loss of coordination or balance, or a sudden severe headache. To learn more about stroke symptoms and causes, as well as prevention, visit your Westchester stroke specialists at Westchester Neurological Consultants in Yonkers, New York.

Strokes are the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability in America. Over 600,000 strokes occur in the United States each year, with approximately 25% of them resulting in patient death. Strokes occur at an equal rate in men and women. Ischemic strokes occur more frequently in people over the age of 65, whereas, hemorrhagic strokes are more common in younger people. With such high numbers of fatalities, it is important to learn the warning signs of stroke and learn if your medical problems make you more susceptible.

At Westchester Neurological Consultants in Yonkers, we believe the best way to treat a potential stroke is to prevent it. High risk patients, those diagnosed with hypertension, diabetes, or atrial fibrillation, are often treated prophylactically with drugs. These drugs, known as antithrombotics or thrombolytics, can help to quickly dissolve a clot that could cause an ischemic stroke, or stop bleeding that could cause a hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemic strokes occur when a blood vessel supplying the brain becomes blocked and a hemorrhagic stroke occurs when there is bleeding into the brain. At our Weschester Neurological office, we offer post-stroke rehabilitation to help individuals overcome the disabilities that sometimes result from stroke damage. Recovering from a stroke is a lifelong process, let our stroke specialists assist your or your loved ones during this healing process.
