Migraines and headaches can be debilitating, often with underlying causes that go beyond surface symptoms. Among these causes, suboccipital nerve entrapments stand out as a significant trigger for chronic pain and discomfort. Fortunately, there’s a highly effective and minimally invasive treatment available: Active Release Technique (ART) and focused fascial work.

Unveiling the Root: Suboccipital Nerve Entrapments

The suboccipital region, located at the base of the skull, hosts a network of nerves susceptible to entrapment. When these nerves get compressed or irritated due to various factors like poor posture, muscle tension, or trauma, they can send distress signals triggering migraines and headaches.

Dr. Masata MD at The Health League explains, “Identifying and addressing suboccipital nerve entrapments is crucial for those suffering from chronic migraines and headaches. It’s often a hidden but significant factor contributing to their discomfort.”

The ART of Relief: Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique, practiced by the skilled chiropractors at The Health League, has emerged as a beacon of hope for individuals seeking relief from these nerve entrapments. ART involves targeted movement and pressure applied to affected soft tissues, releasing tension, and restoring optimal nerve function.

“ART is a game-changer,” says Dr. Watson, one of the leading chiropractors at The Health League. “By specifically addressing nerve and vessel entrapments, fascial adhesions, and muscle tension, we can alleviate the pressure on suboccipital nerves, providing remarkable relief to migraine and headache sufferers.”

Fascial Work: A Companion in Healing

Alongside ART, fascial work plays a pivotal role in resolving suboccipital nerve entrapments. Fascia, the connective tissue surrounding muscles and nerves, can become restricted, exacerbating nerve compression. The Health League’s approach integrates specific fascial techniques to release these restrictions, promoting enhanced blood flow and nerve function.
