Is there a connection between Migraines, headaches and Vertigo, dizziness and motion sickness?
Yes, we believe there is. Vertigo, dizziness and motion sickness problems are believed to result from a disturbance somewhere in the equilibratory apparatus in the inner ear, within the temporal bones. Nature intended that the temporal bones and the semicircular canals of this inner ear apparatus be in absolute orientation and remain so to maintain balance. The tight musculature in the front of the neck on the left in this Pattern, specifically the Sternocleidomastoid muscle, creates an imbalanced tension on the left temporal bone, pulling it into posterior rotation. This posterior rotation of the left temporal bone has the potential to disrupt this delicate inner ear coordination, disturbing equilibrium by causing the right and left semicircular canals to be mechanically disoriented with each other. This sends confused images to the brain, resulting in balance and dizziness-related problems. These problems tend to worsen as pain increases in head and neck pain situations, decreasing a
