Headaches, migraines, and vertigo all follow the same theme. Migraines can at best be annoying and disruptive and at their worst completely debilitating. Their causes from the medical perspective aren’t fully understood. Blood flow and hormone issues seem to play a role. From our perspective, head and neck issues come down to position and alignment. Most people with headaches, migraines, and vertigo will have a forward head posture.  
This can cause tension in the muscles and neck. The tighter the muscles the harder it is for the blood to flow through. Think of a wet towel that’s wrung out. With the towel twisted there’s no room for the water. Along with the blood flow, the tense muscles are going to cause pressure around the head pulling at various points. by realigning the head, the muscles relax. 
Another layer is pressure on nerves. When the body is out of position the vertebrae will move out too pressing on nerves. This pressure can disrupt various layers of normal functioning. 
Pain is a message that something is out of place or to be cautious.
