A New Take on Treating Headaches
Yes, there is current interest in using lasers to treat migraine. In this case, low level laser therapy, otherwise known as LLLT.
The idea of adding more light and heat to migraine may not sound appealing at first. But LLLT is a non-invasive and non-painful therapy that has been used for a number of pain conditions including headache disorders. There are specific laser treatment devices that are used for certain conditions.
In the case of LLLT, the lasers are set at a lower level than what is used for surgeries. This is not a cutting treatment. Instead, it stimulates your cells in certain ways that may promote healing.
The trials of this type of laser therapy for various conditions have not always had spectacular results. However, since the therapy seems to be side effect free and non-invasive, there is some interest in further researching the treatment.
So that brings us to migraine.
The LLLT needs to have a target. In this case, it’s the sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG). The SPG, a nerve cluster behind the nose, is already the focus of migraine treatment (and cluster headache treatment).
However, this treatment can help with a single attack, it could be another situation where a migraine patient could have a hand-free device at home that would allow them to treat themselves.

Well, there is some good news. It is called Cold Laser also known as Low-Level Laser therapy. Laser therapy uses a laser beam to pinpoint nerves thought to cause headaches. It has been used in Europe for a dozen years and now it is reaching our shores at the speed of light. The light beam acts to stimulate arterioles, small arteries producing nitric oxide. As a side note, erectile dysfunction medications do the same thing. The increased production of NO2 (nitric oxide) will relax constricted blood vessels. The relaxed blood vessels allow for vasodilation and can decrease the pain. Now, be certain it is not saying that you should take Viagra for headaches. We are pointing to similarities to explain the mechanism and as to why it is believed to work.
The laser is aimed at the sphenopalatine ganglion, a nerve branch of the trigeminal nerve believed to be involved with headaches. The pain receptors are irritated when constricted. The NO2 allows for relaxation of the constriction, and this is the mechanism that causes the headache to subside. Does it work for all headaches? No, but it is promising as people seek out non-drug approaches to their health issues. There are virtually no side effects. The relief can be profound and this is where Cold Laser Therapy offers a great deal of hope for those suffering from chronic headaches.
