The headache-neck pain connection
There are two conditions that are often to blame for simultaneous headaches and neck pain. These include:
These headaches develop as a result of strain in the neck, or the cervical spine. Some common neck conditions that can spawn headaches include cervical osteoarthritis, whiplash, and nerve compression from bulging or herniated spinal discs.
Aptly named, tension headaches develop as a result of tension that’s rooted in the neck. The suboccipital muscles at the base of the skull can easily become strained and trigger headaches as a result of injuries like whiplash and factors such as poor posture, teeth grinding, stress, and eye strain.
Every patient is different. Sometimes, there is no connection between headaches and neck pain. The best – and only – way to determine what is at the root of your pain is to consult with a doctor, such as the orthopedic specialists at Physicians Rehabilitation. We can identify the source of a patient’s symptoms and develop an individualized treatment plan to relieve pain as quickly and safely as possible.
