HELPFUL HEADACHE INFORMATION

-80% of headaches are related to muscle tension, 10% sinus related (NSR works great for this!), and 10% are migraine related.

-Migraine headaches are often caused by artery or nerve entrapment (often by muscle or bone) which can cause swelling on the brain.

-Headaches are often caused by the entrapment of nerves found at the top of the spine which can send pain into the head and face.

-Chronic headaches can cause teeth grinding and lead to expensive dental surgery.

-There are treatment options for patient’s who have experienced previous head trauma-concussion, whiplash, fall, etc.

-Their may be dietary/vitamin deficiencies or triggers that may be causing the patient’s headaches.

-Chronic headaches may lead to vertigo which can be treated by special vertigo maneuvers.

-Your work and home environment may be causing your headaches.

-Compression of the bones in your skull may be causing your headaches.
