Headaches and Migraines – From Your Neck?

Has there been a gradual increase in the frequency of your headache or migraine over the years?

If the answer is yes, this is a clear indicator that your neck is probably involved!

An increase in frequency indicates that a neck disorder (usually stiffness of one or more of the top three spinal vertebral segments) is worsening and results in a gradual increase in frequency in headache or migraine over the years – sometimes to become continuous – yes a constant headache! A gradual increase in frequency, in headache or migraine over the years suggests very strongly that your neck is the source of your headache or migraine.

However that’s not to say if there hasn’t been an increase in the frequency of your headache or migraine over the years, then your neck is not involved.

Stronger Medication – Also Indicating a Neck Problem

The other change that often accompanies a gradual increase in headache frequency is that over the years you need to take stronger medication (as the one you are taking is having less and less of an effect) and medication – this is another indication that your headache or migraine is the result of a worsening neck disorder.

Summary,

  • Headache or migraine is one sided, can occur on either side, or can swap sides within the same episode
  • Headache or migraine is preceded or accompanied by neck stiffness, pain or discomfort
  • Headache or migraine has gradually increased in frequency over the years

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, there is a strong probability that your headache or migraine is coming from a neck disorder. If you suffer with headaches or migraine (or know someone that does) and wish to discuss if we can help.
