HOW DOES MIGRACALM® WORK?
alleviates migraine by putting pressure on the arteries.
One of the arteries that causes the most pain is the
superficial temporal artery
(the artery that travels through the lateral part of the head, and can be felt easily in front of the ear. It is often used to take someone's pulse.
It crosses the zygomatic process of the temporal bone, approximately 5 cm above it, it splits into a frontal branch and another parietal branch)
, which can be touched in the
temple (the part of the cranium between the ear, the cheek and the eye)
Neurologists Yousef Himaidan and Carlo Cianchetti demonstrated this in 2005, in their study entitled "Effectiveness of a prolonged compression of scalp arteries on migraine attacks"
published in the Journal of Neurology, Volume 253, Number 6, of June 2006.
Pressure on this area lessens the sharp pain caused by the flow of blood, notably alleviating the pain.
Many other neurologists who are experts on the study of migraines have confirmed the value of this non-pharmocological treatment, including Dr. Feliu Titus, in his "Vencer la migraña, del conocimiento al control"
(Combatting migraine, from knowledge to control) ed. Viena 2004.
The pressure on this area lessens the sharp pain caused by the flow of blood, notably alleviating the pain.
applies continuous pressure on the point in the temples where most of the pain is focused, clearly alleviating the sensation of pain.
