We have all at one time or another suffered from headaches. However, quite often there is a musculoskeletal component contributing to the issue.
That said, many headaches do come from metabolic causes or illness. To determine the nature of the headaches a detailed consultation involving taking your blood pressure and temperature will be performed.
Posture is the issues that can lead to a tightening of the muscles in the upper part of the neck. These create muscle tension that can refer to the front of the head. Other headaches, such as migraines, can be a caused by a combination of musculoskeletal dysfunction in the neck alongside metabolic stress. In these cases treatment may include dietary advice and supplementation.
