Headaches are something most of us have experienced and dealt with in different ways. Headaches can also occur for a number of reasons.
From allergies and hormonal changes to muscle tension and poor posture, your headache may originate from any number of reasons. However if it is the latter, the headaches caused by muscular or postural conditions, that physiotherapy can help alleviate.
What causes the muscular discomfort that results in headaches?
A large group of headaches stem from problems arising in the neck. Increased muscle tension and sprains of the ligaments around the neck vertebrae can place pressure on the upper neck vertebrae, which then refers pain up into the head.
This can be caused by a number of reasons such as:
- Poor ergonomics when sitting in front of a computer screen
- Awkward sleeping positions
- The after effects of an accident.
