Nasal air suction and acute migraine relief

Takeaway

  • In children with migraine, reduction in pain and tenderness scores in both left and right suborbital areas were higher in people treated with paranasal suction versus those who received placebo suction.

Why this matters

  • During migraine attacks, airflow through the nostrils and paranasal sinuses can become obstructed and increase the severity of the event.

  • Paranasal sinus air suction can potentially provide immediate relief from migraine pain and reduce migraine induced suborbital tenderness.
