Tired of taking medication for headache pain that does not go away? Nerve irritation is the leading cause of headache pain for many sufferers.
Recent studies have found a connection between muscle tension at the base of the neck and headaches.
Muscle contractions interfere with the sensitive nerve fibers at the base of the neck that lead to the brain and spinal cord. This muscle tension often plays a contributing factor to headache pain.
Another study found that the vast majority of migraine headache sufferers have misalignments of the spinal vertebrae in the neck, placing pressure on the nerves. This muscle tension often plays into headache pain.
