Head injuries and concussions can sometimes cause headaches, dizziness, balance problems and light sensitivity. Bedford Chiropractic Clinic offers chiropractic treatments to reduce the nerve irritation that triggers these symptoms. We also treat shoulder, back, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle injuries.
The majority of recurrent headaches are of two types: tension headaches (also called cervicogenic headaches) and migraine headaches. There is a third, less common, type of headaches called a cluster headache that is a cousin to the migraine headache.
In most cases of tension headaches, significant improvement is accomplished through adjustments of the upper two cervical vertebrae, coupled with adjustments to the junction between the cervical and thoracic spine. This is also helpful in most cases of migraine headaches, as long as food and lifestyle triggers are avoided as well.
TMJ (Temporomandibular joint)
Temporomandibular joint is the joint that allows your jaw to move, thus helping you talk, chew food and yawn. When the TMJ is injured, the movement of the jaw is constrained and limited.
