Headache Pain in Palm Coast
When dealing with a persistent headache, did you know that the pounding, tension, throbbing and pain may be caused by a structural issue? When the cervical spine has excess stress on it, muscles will spasm and sensitive nerves at the base of the head become pinched. Is it any wonder why so many people suffer needlessly from headaches?
The Cause of Headache Pain
Did you know that poor posture is usually the culprit to most headaches? It’s true! Imagine if you will a small 5lb weight held close to your body. How long could you hold that weight there for? Chances are a long time. Now, how about if you were to hold it out at arm’s reach? Get the picture? The human head weighs anywhere from 12-15lbs or roughly the weight of a bowling ball. When properly supported by the spine, the muscles of the neck do not have to work very hard. But as we slouch, our shoulders round forward, our head creeps forward, and more and more stress is put on the muscles that hold our head upright. Over time these muscles become overworked and will cramp and spasm. These spasms can directly cause headaches themselves (tension headaches) or can pull the spinal vertebra out of their normal alignment and cause more serious symptoms.
