Holistic Dentistry and the Prevalence of Migraine

Among the many reasons that migraine sufferers should explore holistic and neuromuscular dentistry treatments to relieve their chronic pain, is simply that the need for such alternative headache treatments is striking.

Medical experts report that more 37 million Americans suffer from migraines.

Here are four more noteworthy facts about the prevalence of migraines and the need for alternative headache pain solutions:

  • Research estimates that 13 percent of all American adults have migraines.
  • Up to 3 million of the 37 million American migraine sufferers are said to experience chronic, reoccurring episodes.
  • At least 5 million Americans suffer from at least one migraine headache a month.
  • More than 11 million Americans attribute their disability status to chronic, severe migraines.

Once a migraine episode has begun, it can set off a neurological chain reaction that commonly triggers other pain and discomfort including:

  • Vomiting
  • Aura
  • Nausea
  • Sound or light sensitivity
  • Pain elsewhere in the body
