Researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing in Lincoln recently conducted a study on migraines. Dr. Nancy Waltman is a nurse practitioner, UNMC professor and conducted research on the issue and found the results were significant. Dr. Waltman says they studied patients for 12 months and found out that most people who suffer migraine headaches do not go for diagnosis or treatment but there are many things that can help. She says by adjusting diet, making lifestyle changes and medication patients saw a significant improvement.
Participants reported a decrease in frequency of migraines by 76%, severity of pain decreased by 31% and perception of disability from headaches decreased by 66%.
It is estimated that 28-million Americans suffer from migraines.
