Neck Pain and Headaches Relief

What constitutes serious neck and head pain?

Common complaints include migraines and tension headaches, muscle soreness through the neck and upper back-likely making it difficult to turn one’s head fully, stabbing pain localized to one spot on the neck, or pain that radiates as far down as the fingertips.

In some cases, the causes of your headaches or neck pain may be obvious — if you’ve recently been in a car accident or suffered a sports injury, for example. However, problems can also develop through poor posture or from having to perform the same actions repeatedly. In addition, if you’re obliged to spend too much time at your desk or in your car, resulting muscle weakness can add to the problem.

What are the consequences of not getting help?

Patients who seek treatment from their neck-centered issues are often surprised to learn that some other problems they’ve been experiencing might be related. So even if you think you can “live with” not being able to turn your neck fully, other problems can accumulate.

For example, if you have chronic migraines or frequent bouts of tension headaches, a pinched nerve in your neck may actually be the culprit, rather than your diet or your busy schedule. In addition, you may find that the problems you’ve been having with shoulder mobility — or shooting pains down your arms and hands — often spring from compressed nerves in your upper vertebrae.

Untreated neck pain can even lead to issues you might never expect, such as balance problems or trouble gripping objects. Each of the nerve roots located in your upper vertebrae are connected to other parts of your body, from your shoulders to each of your little fingers.
