Headaches Mechanical and Nutritional Causes of Headache Pain

Hello, my name is Jeff Aberle and inthis tutorial we are going to discuss the most common causes for headaches. And most of youthat have headaches that are going to be watching this really don't know where they're comingfrom. You're probably thinking it's stress related. You've probably been checked outfor any oddities like cancer or tumors inside the brain. I mean sometimes those are verysudden and acute onset types of headaches and sometimes they're slow onset. That's notwhat I'm going to be talking about here. I'm just going to be talking about the typicalheadache and the reasons for it and how to go about solving it. So here I have a 3d modeland we're going to use this to discuss the

headache type cycle that people have. Andsome people can get headaches behind the eyes, around the eyes, in the temples, sometimeson the side of the head, sometimes over the top of the head and all the way down to theback. So they start down around here and come up around the head into the eyes. So all thesedifferent types of headaches, believe it or not, are somewhat related. And they are caused,often times, from a thing called a cervicogenic headache. Now cervicogenic just means comingfrom the neck. And there's multiple reasons for this again. Let's look quickly in termsof structure. We can't get into a lot of details because there's just a lot of animations thatwould have to be made to get into a ton of

the details. But when it comes to the neckmusculature it will all relate to some of the deep muscles that we'll show. So hereI'm going to take away the Trapezius. And down in here some of these people get thereheadaches through these muscles. This is the Splenius Capitus muscle. Both sides here.I thought you could see the label, but you can't. And, then we take away the SpleniusCapitus muscles and we've got these muscles and they're called Semispinalis Capitus muscles.So we'll take away those again because headaches can come from these where these muscles tightenup. And we're going to hide those. Hide That. Now we get into some of the deeper musclesof the neck. And if you have headaches and

you've stuck your finger up here and pushedon these muscles. Not this one per say. I'll remove that one. But some of these smallerones. You can feel these are very tight and contracted. And when you push on it, it eitherrelieves your headache or it actually increases it. And if you massage that, it might increaseyour headache while you're massaging it, but then it relieves it a little bit afterwards.So why is that the caseƩ Well if these muscles are contracted in the neck, they can causea lot of distortions up here. And they can also trigger this, thing called, um. Thisconcept where you get kind of like an ice cream headache concept. Where the pain fibersfrom these muscles, as they're going into

the brainstem, the spinal cord. They can actuallykind of like cross talk with the Trigeminal nucleus. And that concept will actually giveyou headache pain along the face. The eyes usually and up into the forehead and downthrough here. And that can happen very easily from that Trigeminal nervenucleus influence.And that's from pain fibers being stimulated through here. And you don't necessarily feelthe pain here, that's the odd thing. I'm not really describing it perfectly. It's actuallycalled nociception. But it's the pain fibers, the nociceptors, which detect injury are actuallybeing fired and on their way up to the brain, they cross talk with the nucleus that handlesand is responsible for facial pain. And that's

how you can get facial pain sometimes fromthese spots right through here. That's a very common reason. The other thing that can happenis you can get distortion in the meningeal tube that's deep in the spinal cord here.And we're not going to go into that. I think it shows it here somewhat. The lighting justisn't right. You can see the spinal cord in there, ok that yellow thing. And that yellowthing has around it a tube like structure called the meninges. And that, if that thinggets twisted and distorted in such a way, that too can give you intense headaches. Anduntil you get those meninges released with some specific chiropractic adjustments throughthe Advanced BioStructural Correction technique,
