Understanding Stress, Neck Pain & Headaches

“ Common pain conditions (i.e., arthritis, back, headache, and other musculoskeletal issues) result in $61.2 billion in lower productivity for U.S. workers. ” - Journal of the American Medical Association, 2003

Do you suffer from frequent neck pain and headaches? Do you also have a lot of stress in your life? Most people equate stress with high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes. But did you know headaches, dizziness, and neck and shoulder pain can often come from stress? Chronic headaches, which can also be accompanied by extreme fatigue, are very often signs of stress. People may take medication on a daily basis for years because of constant headaches and these medications (if overused)

may actually be a cause of the problem and not a solution. Frequent headaches can then lead to an increase in pain and tightness in the muscles of the neck, upper back and shoulders, and can eventually contribute to an individual developing improper posture. Here at South Toledo Physical Therapy, our physical therapists can treat your symptoms caused by stress, and can teach you stretching techniques that will help you relieve your stress and muscle tightness on a daily basis.
