Headaches are a widespread health issue, affecting millions of people around the world. From mild to severe, headaches can have a major impact on a person's quality of life. While some may experience only occasional headaches, many people have frequent and chronic headaches.
A study has shown that adolescents often suffer from headaches and neck pain. Prolonged sitting in static positions, such as at a computer, can be a contributing factor to neck pain and headaches in adolescents.
Headaches caused by a neck problem are often referred to as cervicogenic headaches. It typically originates from the neck and radiates up into the head, and can be confused with other types of headaches such as migraine. These headaches are caused by a misalignment of the joints, muscles, or ligaments in the neck, which can lead to muscle tension and irritation of the nerves in the area.
