Hi everybody. Dr. Jodi Kinney here, your chiropractor for headaches in Belmar, NJ.
So today I wanna explain to you one of the most important things we find with people who suffer with headaches, and it’s called a subluxation.
Subluxations are when the spinal joints in your spine, which are supposed to move nice and smoothly past one another, get stuck and get locked and shift out of alignment.
And it starts to pinch or press on the nerves that exit out of the spine here.
These nerves that come from the upper part of the spine feed into all of these muscles.
So if the spinal joints get locked, and they irritate the nerve, that’s gonna affect the musculature, and the muscles go into the back of the head, around to the temples, into the face.
Sometimes just all intense pain and pressure can start in the neck.
80% of headaches don’t actually come from your head. They come from your neck.
If your spine is locked and subluxated and not moving well, that could potentially be giving you a headache.
And it’s very treatable.
