Neck Pain & Headaches

Common complaints from those experiencing neck pain and migraines or even tension headaches, is that they have trouble turning their head fully, all-over neck soreness, 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 like if you’ve recently been in a car accident or suffered a sports injury. Oftentimes, however, problems can develop through poor posture or from having to perform the same action repeatedly. Or, if you’re often obliged to spend too much time at your desk or in the car, the resulting muscle weakness can add to the problem.

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