Dr. Matta has been providing treatment for acute and chronic pain, as well as migraine pain treatments, for over 20 years.
Migraines are a terrible form of severe headache, often associated with nausea, vomiting, sound and light sensitivity and many other symptoms. They can be debilitating and it is estimated they cost the Canadian economy over half a billion dollars annually in direct and indirect costs.
There are definite triggers (chocolate, red wine, cheese, etc.) and it is very important to avoid them if you can. Many women suffer premenstrually or as a result of the birth control pill. Some patients respond well to natural supplementation with magnesium or vitamin B, but many women do not.
New treatment options have become available over the last two decades. Studies have shown that the majority of migraine patients respond to a multi-faceted approach. I have been treating migraines for over 20 years and the quality of life of many of my patients has improved greatly with treatment. Men and women alike who have suffered for years and missed out on special times with their family and friends can now return to a normal life. Insurance companies often pay for the treatment.
