Headaches Have a Neck Component
Ask an athlete who has chronic headaches-any
kind of headache-from migraines,
tension, muscular, to cluster headaches-they will inevitably say that
either before, during, or after the headache they experienced neck pain.
What most athletes do not realize is that the ligaments
in the neck refer pain to the head. This is the reason why most headaches
have a neck component.
eliminates the neck trigger points for the headaches by stimulating the ligaments
to heal. Many athletes ask whether allergies and hormone
problems can also cause headaches. These most definitely can play a role, but
once the neck component is eliminated, it is much more difficult for a person
to get a headache even if they have allergies or hormonal problems. If the
headaches do recur they are less frequent and of less severity. To totally
eliminate the headaches in this situation, food
allergy testing and hormone analysis would be performed. Often eliminating
certain foods, taking some nutritional
supplements such as stinging nettles, omega-3
fatty acids, and natural hormone
replacements (or herbals to accomplish similar responses), will take care
of the rest of the headache problem.
