Facial Pain Relief
Unusual facial pains were linked to functional disorders of the vertical-occipital juncture due to musculo-tendon, vascular and sympathetic nerve irritations in upper cervical spine.

An example of this:
“Records of numerous cases including myocardial ischemia showed lesions of the spinal column are perfectly capable of simulating accentuating, or making a major contribution to (organic) disorders. There can, in fact, be no doubt that the state of the spinal column does have a bearing on the functional status of the internal organs.”
