Behavioural treatments help people with migraine address lifestyle factors to improve migraine management. Some behavioural treatments that have evidence showing they reduce migraine frequency include the following. Let’s look at some treatment options for migraine :
- Relaxation Training – Daily relaxation practice help you achieve a physical and mental state of calm and reduce migraine attacks.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – Teaches you how to break this cycle to produce a better outcome. Core beliefs like nothing I do matters. Intermediate beliefs like I can’t manage my condition. Situations like running late, no time to eat, missed the bus. Thought like will lose my job, will get the worst attack. Outcome like pushing through at work, skip meal, stressed and anxious etc. These all can be dealt by CBT.
- Biofeedback Training – Provides instant information so you can observe and modify your body’s reaction to stress.
There are many ways to find a psychologist who can provide these treatments : Ask your doctor for a referral.
