By finding out what is triggering your migraines we can possibly avoid some attacks. Here is a list of some of the more common migraine triggers:
- Hormone changes in women during menstruation or pregnancy
- Not getting a full night’s sleep
- Low blood sugar due to not eating often enough
- Flashing, bright lights
- Loud noises
- Some foods such as chocolate, hard cheeses, and red wine
While it is a good idea to identify one’s personal triggers in order to avoid them, it is even more important to find out what the root cause of one’s migraine might be. This can lead to relief that is long-lasting.
How Issues in the Spine Can Lead to Migraines
The way the spine was designed allows for it to protect the delicate spinal cord from injury. The spinal cord has the vital job of sending messages to and from the brain and body, thereby keeping things in working order. The bone located at the top of the spine – the atlas or C1 – is susceptible to misalignment due to its location and specialized shape. If a subluxation happens here, communication within the body can be disrupted leading to things such as facial pain, headaches, and muscle spasms – all symptoms related to migraines.
Upper cervical chiropractors have been helping migraine patients for many years now. Here at our Erina office, we use a unique method called Atlas Orthogonal. This is a gentle technique that helps the bones of the neck to move back into their original position. It does not involve twisting or cracking the spine. It has been successful in helping many patients get relief from migraine pain.
