Why does Neura Health Focus on Headache and Migraine?

Migraine is one of the most common diseases worldwide, and can be very severe and even disabling.  In fact, the World Health Organization describes migraine disability as the most disabling disease affecting young people. And it’s a women’s health issue as well – three times more women experience migraine than men

Migraine is not just a headache – there are specific features that a headache has to have in order for it to be considered migraine.  There are always sensitivities and non-pain symptoms that occur during migraine, and it’s even possible to have a migraine with no pain at all (and it can still feel terrible).  Migraine is a unique neurological phenomenon that scientists have learned a tremendous amount about, and with that knowledge comes evidence-based approaches to treatments.

Although migraine can be severe, in almost all situations it is treatable.  There are excellent preventive treatments, and even lifestyle modifications can improve migraine frequency.  Certain supplements can prevent migraine, and there are medications to break up severe migraine attacks that are tailored to migraine on a molecular level. 

Here at Neura Health, we chose to treat migraine because we can improve the lives of so many people, and in profound ways.  Everyone’s migraine symptoms and triggers are different, and we can help individualize an approach that’s right for each person.  We chose migraine because migraine is an important disease.

Neura's approach is a four-step, science-based process that our specially trained board-certified neurologists use to tailor a treatment plan to each patient’s unique issues and needs. 

  1. Receive: Get customized information, education, recommendations and medications by scheduling an initial consultation with your board-certified neurologist.
  2. Record: Input your headaches using the built-in tracker in the Neura app; the data is seamlessly shared with your neurologist.
  3. Review: Meet with your neurologist to discuss progress, adjust medications and format a long-term treatment plan for your needs to manage headaches over the long term. 
  4. Repeat: Track headaches, and meet with your neurologist to discuss progress as many times as you would like.
