I don’t know if you’ve ever had headaches or migraines, but you should read this and then share it with some of your friends.


The medical community often tells you that headaches and migraines result from stress, dehydration, or poor sleep habits, and you know what? Some of that is true. But here’s the deal. They don’t always emphasize that they can be linked to issues in your neck or spine. If they’re linked to your brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves, then none of those things are going to actually take care of your headaches the right way.


Now I want you to think about that. If your car needs oil, do you cut the oil line to get rid of the symptoms or do you add the oil and take care of your engine the right way? Whatever is causing your headaches is what needs to be addressed. Agreed?


We’ve found that a significant number of our patient’s headaches and migraines can be traced back to problems in the cervical spine (neck vertebrae).

Your head is “controlled” by the brain inside it and the nerves that originate from your spinal column, and when these nerves or brain are irritated or compressed, they can trigger headaches or migraines.


Other causes of headaches can include conditions like sinus infections, high blood pressure, or even eye strain, so it’s crucial that you get checked now. We can sit down, have a conversation and do some testing to find out if in fact your headaches are coming from your spinal nerves.


Here are some common causes of headaches and migraines and they include:


  •   Tension headaches: Often related to muscle tension and stress.
  •   Cervicogenic headaches: Originating from neck issues like cervical misalignment.
  •   Migraine headaches: Severe, recurring headaches often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light/sound.
  •   Cluster headaches: Excruciating headaches that occur in cyclical patterns or clusters.
  •   Sinus headaches: Caused by sinus inflammation or infection.
  •   TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Disorders: Jaw problems that can trigger headaches.
  •   Occipital neuralgia: Irritation of occipital nerves causing pain at the base of the skull.
