The SMITH-Technique migraine treatment operation isn’t for everyone. It is, however, for people who are suffering from migraine-like symptoms. The reason why we call them migraine-like symptoms is because, in actuality, these problems aren’t stemming from migraines.
As a Houston facial plastic surgeon and ENT doctor, Dr. Kevin Smith has performed thousands of facial surgeries over the past 20 years. He has performed everything from facelifts and neck lifts to rhinoplasties and eyelid surgeries. During this time, he realized that when he would perform rhinoplasties and also conduct a septoplasty with it, patients would not only notice their nose looked exceptional, but they also noticed they weren’t having any more migraines or severe headaches.
These migraine-like symptoms were because the patient had a deviated septum, which is when the bone and the cartilage becomes bent and begins to press upon sensitive tissue areas. Removing these pressure points that cause extreme pain in various parts of the head proved that these migraine sufferers actually weren’t suffering from migraines, but were actually due to an injury or trauma to the nose.
The ideal candidate for the SMITH-Technique is actually someone with a deviated septum. If you are reading this and think you do not have a deviated septum, or that this doesn’t apply to you, you may want to think again.
Dr. Smith’s research into this interesting correlation has proven some incredible statistics:
Those statistics are definitely eye-opening, but the following statistics should offer hope to any migraine sufferer looking for migraine relief:
Those seeking migraine treatment usually suffer from similar symptoms, which affect every aspect of their life.
“The candidates for this procedure are those people who have been told by their physicians that they have migraines or intractable headaches for years in spite of all the medications they’ve taken, scans that they might have had, or procedures they might have had done,” Dr. Smith says. “And in spite of all that, they still come away with headaches that are daily, intermittent, severe – they make you nauseated.”
Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, photophobia, light sensitivity, among many other problems. Some may even suffer from paralysis in certain parts of the body.
If you suffer from any of these migraine symptoms, then your time of suffering may be at a near end. The SMITH-Technique procedure only lasts between 30 minutes to an hour and could finally give you the migraine relief you have been searching for.
