In recent years, many different techniques have been developed to treat chronic back pain and rheumatism. However, even today, in North America, over 46.7% of adults and 30% of adolescents suffer from back pain. There is typically more than one cause in each case. Back pain can begin sporadically and evolve almost inexorably to chronic pain, despite the multitude of proposed treatments. This is because most treatments do not get to the root cause of the pain.
The root cause, in most cases is linked to poor communication between the brain and the rest of the body. To send out optimal information to the body on how to move and function efficiently, the brain must first receive information from different parts of the body. Notably, the eyes and feet send valuable information to the brain about where the body is located in space. When these sensory receptors aren’t functioning properly, though, the brain does not get all the information it needs. Overtime, misalignments of the musculoskeletal system can occur and they cause postural compensations that result in pain and injury.
When the brain-body connection is not working properly, tension from other areas of the body can negatively affect the trigeminal vascular system and vice versa. This is why it is important to consider symptoms such as headaches within a whole-body approach. Once we are able to fix the brain-body connection – optimizing sensory input to the brain and output from the brain to the rest of the body – the entire body is aligned and sources of tension throughout the postural system are eliminated.
Don’t let headaches reduce your productivity and negatively affect your mood. We can help alleviate headache related pain and get to the root cause of the tension in your trigeminal nerve.
