According to a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infants with colic were more likely to have childhood migraine headaches, specifically. The study could not make the same conclusion regarding tension type headaches.
The link between migraines and infantile colic
Parents, doctors and researchers have been frustrated with the idea that colic was related to digestive irritation. The investigators noted that colic might result from a sensitization of the perivascular nerve terminals in the gut, much as migraine results from a similar process in the brain. …Continue Reading
Once again nerves are being implicated in Fibromyalgia pain. Particularly, damage to small fiber nerves. Scientists at The National Center for Biotechnology Information stated, “Although the pathophysiology is still unclear, there is increasing evidence for nervous system dysfunction in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome.”
25 people with fibromyalgia were involved in the study, along with 10 depressed people and regular people who had no pain. Investigators found that patients with fibromyalgia had higher levels of pain than the depressed and/or normal control group of people. They also found that the fibromyalgia group had increased cold and warm detection thresholds. This indicates abnormalities of small fibers in their central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). …Continue Reading

The Dura Matter has a lot of blood vessels running through it and is very sensitive to pain. The dura extends into the spinal canal and protects the spinal cord. Any twisting or torsion of the dura shows up as a headache. …Continue Reading
Recently, a patient came in and told me that he was having trouble getting a full breath. After looking at how he was breathing, I saw that he was a chest breather. Here are some breathing tips to help get that full breath and use your diaphragm to complete that breath.
Understanding the breathing cycle:
Inhaling is due to the contraction and flattening of the diaphragm, this creates a vacuum pressure in the chest and causes the lungs to expand and inflate. The diaphragm is located between your chest and your abdomen.
When the body is in need of more oxygen, abdominal muscles tighten and expansion of the lungs is resisted. The increased abdominal pressure causes the diaphragm to tilt and the ribcage moves upwards with an increase in volume and the entry of air.
In a relaxed exhale, the diaphragm relaxes and air leaves due to the elasticity of the lungs. This relaxed breathing uses very little energy. …Continue Reading
