Kids Get Migraines too!
A recent story on ABC news reported about children suffering with migraines. Often we think of migraines as something that only affects adults, but research reports say that migraines in childhood probably occur more than you think.
The story was about Jacob Holladay, a 12 year old, who was suffering through the fifth day of a severe head pain. The episode was so bad that he got admitted to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
“It generates from my right and left temple but mostly my left one,” said Holladay.
His mom says he’s been out of school for a week, and he missed two weeks in January as well.
How long Jacob’s migraines last makes him a bit unusual, but pediatric neurologists say child migraines are quite common. Studies show migraines occur in 5 percent of children under 10 and in 10 percent of teens and preteens.
The story goes on to say, “kids with migraines often grow up to become adults with migraine. That’s why experts say learning to prevent them and find ways to manage them early will help keep them under control.”

Getting to the Cause of Migraines
Unfortunately, the story did not discuss the most recent research regarding migraines. Science is now revealing that migraines are likely caused by changes in blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow to and from the brain as a result of a misalignment in the upper neck. These misalignments are commonly caused by accidents that produce previously undetected injuries to the upper neck. These misalignments are capable of being corrected.
