How Surgery Might Help You To Overcome Migraine?

Migraines has always triggered the pain with the compression and irritation of vital nerves in your face and head. These triggers may be chronic, depends on the lifestyle you are living with always working in computers and operating in mobile phones keeping your always active without any rest which may gives pressures to the nerves behind your eyes and the result is chronic headache, or may be the result of changes that take place over time. Surgically soothing the pressure on compressed nerves may minimize the pressures and free the muscles or even eliminate them altogether.

Here are three areas generally considered to be likely trigger points. Each has a specific surgical procedure to treat the pressure and irritation.

1. Frontal headaches (starting above the eyebrows) may be due to the irritation of the supratrochlear and suborbital nerves in the glabellar area. The surgeon endoscopically detaches the corrugator and depressor supercilii muscles through a small incision.

2. Rhinogenic or nasal headaches (behind the eyes), may be cured with a septoplasty surgery.

3. Occipital headaches (originating in the back of the neck) may be caused when the greater occipital nerve is effected or a pain is generated by the semispinalis capitis muscle. During surgery the muscle is removed and the nerve is soothed from further irritation.

How does this work?
Migraine surgery may reduce the irritation and compression of trigger nerves, either by working on the tissue surrounding the nerves by resecting or by blocking the pain signals which are sensitive nerves.
