A Possible Cause for Migraines
It has been noted, that in some cases of migraine sufferers, that there has been a previous trauma to the head or neck area at some point in the person’s life. This has created a neurological disorder that results in migraine headaches. This trauma can be due to an accident, fall, or injury of some sort. In some cases, the trauma of birth can be the start of migraines. This can be due to the use of forceps in delivery, a C-section, or simply the twisting of the infant’s neck during natural birth. This may not affect the person until a little later in life.
When a trauma occurs to the upper neck area, there is a possibility of a misalignment in the top two vertebrae of the spine. This is called the upper cervical spine. When a misalignment occurs in this region, pressure can be placed on the brainstem, there can be pinched nerves, and problems can be seen in other parts of the body.
