Headaches are a common complaint among people. Headaches are what usually comes after back and neck pain. Headaches are often caused by poor posture, as well as neck and back injuries. In our office, we see a few different types of headaches.
Migraines/Cluster headaches- usually involved nausea and/or vomiting. These types of headaches shut you down and require you to rest in a dark, quiet place until there is a relief.
Tension Headaches- If you are or have experienced muscle tightness in your neck and or upper back, the tension can run up into your head and cause a throbbing pain or an ache.
