Many people suffer from some form of headache on a regular basis. There are tension headaches, cluster headaches, rebound headaches, and numerous others. There are many causes of these different types of headaches. Migraine headaches are especially debilitating for many people. We have had great success helping the people of Tucson to eliminate or reduce the severity and/or frequency of their headaches.
The nerves from the upper neck travel into the head, and irritation of these nerves can cause pain in the head, especially the back of the head. Some people feel like they have been struck in the back of the head with a pipe or board. This irritation of the nerves going into the neck can be caused by misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae. Also, misalignment of the upper neck can affect the flow of blood in and out of the head. CT scans have shown a change in spinal fluid flow in and out of the head after an upper neck adjustment using the Atlas Orthogonal technique.
Often times, correcting the upper neck alignment alone will alleviate the problem. More difficult cases may also require an evaluation utilizing our science based nutrition to discover if there are nutritional needs to help you regain your optimal health. This process involves blood tests, urinalysis, and hair tests to evaluate levels of metals, minerals, etc. in the patient's system which could be causing the problem.
