Find relief for your headaches w/Chiropractic of Naples
Headaches, although common, are not normal. About 90% of us will suffer from some type of headaches at some point in time. Many will only suffer from an occasional headache, but some may become quite frequent. A headache can present with anything from a dull ache to throbbing or pounding. In some cases, headaches can become severe and even be debilitating.
Although most people reach to the medicine cabinet for a variety of over the counter pain relievers when a headache starts, it may not be the best choice for your health.
Many headaches are tension headaches that result from the muscles in the back of the neck becoming very tight. Along with a headache, this can result in tightness in your neck and even limitations in the ability to normally move your neck or what we refer to as restricted range of motion. This can result from a number of reasons such as a sedentary lifestyle, sitting at a computer for an extended period of time, or from looking down at a mobile device for long periods of time. This is called “text neck” and we believe is the biggest cause of spine and neck problems.
