“Life Is Good Without Neck Pain! ” Understanding Neck Pain & Headaches Focus On Neck Pain To Relieve HEADACHES HOW NECK PAIN CAN GO TO YOUR HEAD

Headaches can stem from tightness in the neckmuscles at the back of the neck, which is brought about by a forward-head posture and rounded back. This is very common if you work at a computer or sit a lot. In this position the spine is strained. Try to stand up tall with your back against a wall. How far away from the wall is the back of your head? If you have a forward head posture, your head will be quite far from the wall. The forward head position puts a strain on the neck muscles resulting in general muscle tension in the head. This can affect blood flow to the scalp, resulting in a headache. Pain can be referred from the neck to behind the eyes or forehead and even one sided headaches around the temples. Pounding headaches at the back of the head can be related to neckmuscle tightness and limitedmovement.
