What Are Acute Migraines?
An acute migraine is a headache that usually occurs on one side of the head, causing severe pain, pulsing, or throbbing. Also called episodic migraines, acute migraines are often accompanied by other symptoms, including extreme sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, vomiting, irritability, and neck stiffness. The headache may interfere with your daily life and cause difficulty focusing your eyes. Sometimes triggered by stress, acute migraines are those that occur less than 15 days per month, whereas chronic migraines occur more often than that. At Lawrence Family Practice Center, we offer expert care for migraine headaches at our office in Lawrence, KS. Reach out to our caring team to book an appointment.

Diagnosis and Treatment for Migraines
Our physicians diagnose migraines during appointments in Lawrence, KS. Your visit will be carried out in a private treatment room where your doctor will learn about your symptoms and health history. Sometimes additional diagnostic tests are recommended. From there, a personalized treatment plan will be created based on you as an individual, which may include prescription headache medication or other preventive therapies, such as osteopathic manipulation medicine (OMM), which is a hands-on technique that helps promote balance and improve blood flow. Other treatment options for migraines include BOTOX® injections, which are performed in our office. When the BOTOX formula is injected into the forehead, it helps to prevent pain from episodic migraines.
