Fritz PT. Neck Pain & Headaches

Health & Wellness The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body


Headaches can stem from tightness in the neck muscles 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 repetitive position the spine can be 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 a few inches 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, behind the eyes or forehead, and even one sided headaches around the temples. Pounding headaches at the back of the head can be very much related to neck muscle tightness and limited movement. Sincemany headaches stem from problems with neck movement and posture, it is wise that you see a muscle and skeletal expert to help you. The specialists at Fritz Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine have years of medical training evaluating neck and headache problems.
