Why do you have headaches?
Although headaches may occur for a variety of reasons, we have found the most common types are tension headaches and headaches related to emotional and postural stress.
These headaches are typically the result of tension that manifests in the neck at the base of the skull in the muscles referred to as the suboccipitals. With suboccipital tension the nerves become entrapped or pressured as a result of suboccipital tension and inflammation, causing a headache to occur
Tense or overused muscles, stress, tiredness, eyestrain, poor posture, and TMJD are all known to cause headaches. Migraines, meanwhile, are a form of chronic head pain that is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, blind spots in vision, extreme sensitivity to light and sound.
Tension Headaches can also manifest in a number of ways, including:
- Neck tension
- Jaw tension or pain
- Temporal pain
