Did You Know?
Women get headaches 50% more often, for longer periods of time, and more severely than men. In addition, they are two-and-a-half times more likely to suffer from migraine headaches.
Headaches can be annoying, painful, and downright debilitating. Thus they can affect all aspects of life, including work, leisure activities, and, most importantly, relationships. Although somewhat common, this pain is not normal. It is your body’s warning sign that something is amiss and needs attention. Contrary to what your doctor might say, peer-reviewed, medical research shows most headaches originate in the neck.
The Neck is the Source
Two common spinal conditions of the neck contribute to headaches, regardless of whether they are tension or migraine headaches. Both have mechanical origins. The first is hypolordosis. Hypolordosis is simply a loss of the normal neck curve in the spine. This often called a “military neck” because it is straight. Necks must be curved from the side. The second is forward head posture (FHP). This occurs when the head does not sit squarely over the shoulders. This puts significant pressure on the muscles, ligaments, discs, and spinal cord.
