Do you suffer headaches?

in Headache

There are many different triggers for headaches, a common cause being the neck. Neck strain or dysfunction can refer pain into our heads. This occurs because the nerves that supply the upper neck also supply the skin overlying the head, forehead, jaw, back of the eyes and ears. Consequently, pain arising from the upper neck may be felt as pain in any of these regions and this is called a cervicogenic headache.
