In today’s post, Dr. Zinovy Meyler talks exclusively about how chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate pain and pressure of a cervicogenic headache.
A headache can be caused by a problem in the neck. What we call that is cervicogenic headache.

That pain starts there – it can be on one or both sides – and it tends to radiate up into the head and around the head. The easiest way to visualize it is to actually take the palm of your hand…

Headaches are a common complaint at chiropractic clinics. It was the reason, I was introduced to Chiropractic for the migraines I was experiencing. They were so bad that one time it knocked me unconscious for over twelve hours. When someone suggested Chiropractic, I said what is that as I had never heard of this profession. They replied that they “crack” your back. I couldn’t see how “cracking” my back was going to fix my headaches, so I didn’t go. during one of my extreme migraines, my friend dragged me to his Chiropractor, and I was in no condition to object. After examination, x-rays, and treatment, I got more than just the headache fixed. I was amazed. This is one of the greatest medical secrets hidden from most people.

ITBS is a condition that most commonly occurs in runners. The IT-Band is actually a thick band of tissue that is called fascia. Several muscles in the hip and thigh region attach to this thick band and can increase the stress and strain on the tissue. The ITB attaches to the patella (knee cap) and the lower leg, right below the outside of the knee.
So what causes ITBS?
• Most commonly, it is due to a weakness in the hip abductors (gluteus maximus and medius). It may also be caused by other biomechanical influences such as over-pronation of the foot, and excessive force that occurs as the foot strikes the pavement.
