Headaches and Migraine Relief

Headaches and Migraines can range from annoying to debilitating. Dr Paul Hodgson is one of the leading clinicians regarding headaches in the Nashville area, having successfully treated hundreds of cases. His classical training is as a chiropractor, but he had a breakthrough in treatment when he was looking over the files of several migraine patients and trying to understand why some patients got better from correcting their misalignments, and some didn’t.


The Common Stress Factor

He knew it was important to address the misalignment, but couldn’t see what was being missed that could still be giving the patients migraines and headaches. When reading through the histories, he noted a commonality with all these patients…STRESS! Years of searching for the right tool to help patients deal with unresolved stress led Dr. Paul to a technique called Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET). After becoming certified in NET, he conceptually realized that stress comes in three forms: Physical, Chemical, and Mental-Emotional.

All patients come in with a certain amount of each of these stresses, and the key to efficient and oftentimes miraculous outcomes is to find the stresses that are the easiest for the patient and the clinician to remove together. For instance it is possible to have a severe misalignment at C1 in the neck, that should take priority over a dietary or lifestyle change. It is also possible that a past trauma must be dealt with before the patient is ready to think about eating differently or exercising. Each patient must be seen as a whole person, not just a migraine patient, and each stress that is removed will help the patient move further away from their chronic migraines.

This can explain why when someone reduces stress in their life by quitting a stressful job, their migraines get better, and also why when someone begins eating more nutritious food and cuts out processed foods their migraines get better, and also why when they correct a misalignment in the upper neck their migraines get better. Dr Paul has developed a strong skillset of prioritizing the most important stresses leading to migraines, which not only helps him correct many difficult cases, but also helps him do it more rapidly than others.
