Migraines can be difficult to cope with and are little understood. However, it seems as if they are continuing to get more and more common. In fact, as many as 38 million people in the United States are diagnosed with migraines. One way that to avoid migraines is to learn what the triggers behind them are. A letdown migraine may be a little-known reason for why migraines occur. What is this?
A Possible Trigger for Migraines
A letdown migraine happens when one is going through a high-stress situation and then the stress decreases. For example:
- Studying for and then completing final exams at school
- Preparing for and doing a presentation at work
When one is involved in these types of scenarios, stress increases, which contributes to an increase in hormone levels. Once the stress is gone, hormone levels drop, and this can cause a migraine to happen. On a personal level, if you are prone to this type of a migraine, it is important to try to keep high-stress situations at bay. In particular, avoiding peaks of stress is vital. One way to do this is to employ some relaxation techniques and take regular breaks.

Finding Help for Migraines
Here in our Stow, OH office, we help migraine patients by addressing a physical cause that may be contributing to migraine pain. Migraines have been linked to a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck. The misalignment may be as small as ¼ of a millimeter and still cause problems throughout the body.
We are trained to use special x-rays and modern technology, along with a precise measuring system, to find the exact location of the misalignment. Once discovered, we then use a gentle method to help the bones move back into their original position naturally, without popping or cracking them. Once corrected, migraines have been seen to decrease or go away completely in some cases.
