Neck pain and Headache
Neck supports your head with a combination of muscles, ligaments, vertebrae, blood vessels etc. If there is dysfunction of neck components, it will lead to tense of neck muscles and neck pain
Neck is designed to hold head upright. If you have poor posture, long time without changing position and injury, that will cause muscle tension and strain then developing neck pain.
A cervicogenic headache begins in the neck and the back of the head then radiates towards the front of the head. Migraines and tension headaches also can cause neck pain too, therefore, that may mistake as cervicogenic headaches.
Cervicogenic headaches is due to structural problems in the neck, especially cervical C2-3 vertebra and also can be developed after an injury to the neck.
Acupuncture and herbals will improve local blood circulation, reduce inflammation and help tissue repair, therefore reduce neck pain and headache.
