What’s Really Causing Your Headaches?

“The greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck. Today, Americans engage in more sedentary activities than in the past, and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture (such as sitting in front of a computer). This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache.”¹

A primary headache can be a migraine, tension headache, or cluster headache that is not caused by an underlying disease, but rather influenced by several other factors which may include:

Alcohol

Poor nutrition

Sleeping habits

Poor posture

Stress

Lifestyle

Many of American’s spend their days sitting at a desk, slumped over a computer or cell phone. This static position, while seemingly harmless, is causing serious issues for people of all ages, from muscle and back aches to serious migraines and vision loss. The muscle tension that builds up in your shoulders, neck, and scalp, cause serious headaches, and lead to poor posture, which causes your headaches to get even worse.

If you are suffering from headaches or neck pain it is time to consult your doctor and schedule an appointment to see a chiropractor for long term relief of these symptoms.
