An approximately 30-year-old woman visited me in my practice. She had been suffering for years from headaches that radiated helmet-like from the back of the head all the way into the forehead. The pain occurred daily.
A nuclear spin tomography had revealed abnormal straightening in the cervical spine. Nine years before coming to my practice, the patient had suffered whiplash as the result of a car accident.
The cervical spine was blocked and greatly sensitive to pressure in the upper section, a sign of chronic dysfunction. Different blockages were found also in the cranial bones with a greatly reduced craniosacral rhythm. The examination triggered the typical headache.
Over a timespan of four treatments in four months, I succeeded in gently releasing the blockages in the cervical spine, an effort that the patient contributed to with the "homework" I had given her. The headaches disappeared completely.
