Juvenile Migraines: Are Back-to-School Headaches Real?

migraines, migraine relief in VancouverMigraines and headaches are among the leading complaints of kids when studying. While it might seem like a poor excuse to skip classes, studies argue that there may be a grain of truth to it. As parents or guardians looking for natural migraine relief in Vancouver, understanding how headaches happen can make a difference for a child.


Headaches and Migraines Do Happen

The Migraine Research Foundation shares that headaches also heavily affect young people. According to the organization’s reports, juvenile migraines affect more than 10 million children in the USA. Meanwhile, about 28 percent of adolescents aged 15-19 experience mild to severe headaches. 

Some studies note that juvenile migraines during the beginning of the school year might likely occur because of the following:

  • Changes in a child’s sleeping hygiene
  • A sudden increase in activities to do at school
  • Dehydration, especially during a long day
  • Increased exposure to stressors such as tests and school projects
  • Changes in a child’s mealtime

Juvenile migraines remain barely understood in the medical community. That’s why many parents still have challenges in helping their kids who complain of common migraine symptoms. 

Most would resort to giving their kids pain medications for adults. Others explore natural options for migraine relief in Vancouver, such as massages, hot and cold therapy, and taking food supplements that contain vitamin D, magnesium, riboflavin, and coenzyme Q10. 

Some neurologists also recommend using neuromodulation devices such as those developed by scientists.


A Promising Source of Migraine Relief in Vancouver 

Apart from the options for migraine relief in Vancouver mentioned above, you can also try upper cervical care. It’s a popular procedure that patients with recurring headaches use to eliminate their symptoms gradually. It involves making minor and precise adjustments to your neck bones to restore your spinal column’s natural curvature. 

The process aims to relieve pressure on affected body parts along the neck, such as your nerve roots and brainstem. It also restores spinal health, ensuring that the brain communicates well with the body.
