April 30, 2019

Overview

 

The American Migraine Association has a website filled with content to educate you, assist you, and point you in the right direction for increasing your resources in your struggle with migraines. The main page displayed facts in large font to increase awareness on just how bad migraines are for a large percentage of Americans. Whether you’re a patient or a physician, the site encourages you to register and join the research initiatives they have in place and are planning. The ‘Patient Guides’ tab promotes education with information for different scenarios with migraines. Take advantage of the ‘Resource Library’ and find doctors, monitor news, and learn of new therapies and medications for migraines.

 

Living With Migraines

 

If you’re struggling or know someone struggling with migraines, the American Migraine Association wants to help through a direct display of facts and treatment options. Knowing why your migraines are occurring could help you relieve them, so the site conveys a rotating list of facts to learn from in the center of the page. At the bottom of the page, the rolling treatment options show small summaries of diverse forms of treatments available, with an option to click and read more.

 

Educational Resources

 

Visit the AHDA website and learn more about the massive impact of headaches on Americans. They list ‘Quick Facts’ on the sidebar, such as, “Headache disorders are the most prevalent neurological disorders, affecting more than 90% of all Americans”, to expand the knowledge of the unaware reader. Books and book reviews supported by the AHDA can be found at the following sites:

 

Patient Guides

 

The ‘Patient Guides’ section provides a service built right into the name. It guides you to the best information for your type of migraine or most difficult part of the migraine. Guides include ‘Migraine at Work’, ‘What to After the Diagnosis’, ‘What type of Headache do you Have?’, and a ‘Meal Planning Toolkit’.

 

Resource Library

 

The top of every page offers a convenient search bar to find a headache doctor in your area. However, the ‘Resource Library’ goes more in-depth by showing various, relevant news articles and events. It also informs you of new medications, either available or pending, and therapies that may better manage your migraine symptoms.
