HeadacheHeadaches and migraines are fairly common occurrences amongst adults, especially women.

In fact, I had a patient in my office this morning who woke up with a severe migraine. She immediately called the office for an emergency appointment, as she had received much relief from chiropractic adjustments to her neck and jaw in the past.

If you suffer from headaches, and you’ve never had the alignment of your neck and TMJ (tempromandibular joint) checked out, I would highly recommend it, as misalignments contribute to nerve irritation and muscle spasm in the surrounding soft tissue.

 Pinched nerves, as well as trigger point referral (pain referred from the knots in your muscles), commonly contribute to headaches. If you have had previous tests such as an MRI or CT scan, and no abnormalities were detected, and there is no known relation between your migraines and triggers like food allergies or hormonal imbalances, then I would strongly consider looking at possible musculoskeletal causes.
