Additional info: This patient had TMJ involvement, upper cervical misalignment, neck tightness, and as a self-employed person she was working too hard. Intraoral jaw work, cranial therapy, soft tissue cervical release and establishing adequate range of motion in her neck and shoulders helped end her headache pain cycle. Some abdominal/visceral work was also necessary as well as health coaching.
