75% of Patients with Neck Pain Also Have Headaches
There are a variety of headaches out there. The two most common are tension headaches and migraine headaches. Both are caused by similar problems, which are abnormal muscle tension and misalignment of the vertebrae/bones in your neck causing irritation to the nerves that go into your scalp. You are not having headaches because you are lacking Tylenol in your system! Headaches are very intimately connected to neck issues and in our experience about 75% of patients with neck pain also have headaches that are associated with them.
