Headaches

Most of us unfortunately experience a headache every now and then. There is a broad spectrum of reasons why we experience headaches and other issues that contribute to their severity. Headaches can be caused by a concussion, a tumor, vision trouble, cranial nerve issues, diet, and or joint dysfunction. The skull has several joints that will move and shift when working properly and will get stuck and locked when it’s not working properly. The upper neck has nerves that flow directly into the head; when these nerves are irritated, headaches can ensue. In addition to the upper neck we also have 12 cranial nerves, which are the powerhouse nerves of the human body. 10 of the cranial nerves exit the brain stem and control organs, face, eyes and tongue, taste, and swallowing amongst a wide variety of other bodily functions. The other two cranial nerves go from our nose and ears to our brain. If any of these nerves are compromised or are just not functioning properly they can be the cause a headache as well.
