womanneckpainDo you ever experience neck stiffness or pain with your headaches? Recent research suggests that neck and head pain are more related than you think.

One study examined whether headaches and cervical spine impairment were linked in patients with head pain. Of the patients evaluated, 90% had cervicogenic headaches, or headaches linked to neck pain. Furthermore, the severity of patients’ headaches impacted the range of motion in their necks. This study demonstrates the strong relationship between cervical spine (neck) impairment and cervicogenic headaches.

Visit a chiropractor in your area to determine whether your headaches are related to impairment and pain in your neck.
