are often dismissed by those who have never experienced one as a really bad headache. However, a headache is only one symptom of this neurological condition. A number of things can be to blame when a migraine hits. Genetics, allergies to food, and many other factors come into play. One thing that has been noted as a big contributor to migraines is a problem in the spine leading to the following:

Vascular system issues: This is the system in the body that controls the amount of blood flowing through the body. If the brain is hindered from getting the right amount of blood, a migraine may follow due to:

  • Meningitis
  • Encephalitis
  • A concussion
  • A brain abscess
  • Intracerebral hemorrhaging

A malfunction of the central nervous system (CNS): The CNS consists of the brain and the spinal cord. Migraines happen when one has had:

  • Any type of trauma affecting the spinal cord
  • An injury to the brain
  • Degenerative spinal disorders
  • Structural defects
  • Tumors
  • Infections
  • Stroke
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Pressure on the spine and nerves for any reason

Abnormal function of chemicals: Neurotransmitters – dopamine and serotonin – are responsible for sending signals to the brain. If these become distorted, the blood vessels react with unusual activity. This can be caused by birth control, skipping a meal, or consuming certain foods.

Graham Migraine Relief

Alleviating the Pain of Migraines

Since a number of problems begin in the spine, it makes sense that correcting spinal misalignments can help relieve some of the issues. Here at our Graham, Washington practice, we use x-rays combined with other modern technology to help detect if a misalignment lies in the top bones of the neck. We then use a gentle method to help these bones move back into place without cracking or twisting the spine. This often leads to a reduction in the severity and frequency of migraines. Some see their migraines go away and not return.
