Possibly: Cervical spine issues can be the trigger for migraines due to pain, pinched nerves as well as muscle spasm. You can also develop trigger points where scalp muscles originate or nerves can get pinched as they travel through layers of muscle. Chiropractic and massage can be helpful in controlling migraines triggered this way after determining no serious structural neck findings.
