By far, the most popular headaches result from anterior head carriage. This often results in muscular imbalances such as Upper Crossed Syndrome. This is a diagnosis of chronically tight and actviated deep suboccipital muscles on the back of the neck
A chain effect then carries down the spine-
- weak deep neck flexors
- Tight pecs and anterior shoulders
- Weak upper and mid back muscles.
This results in the "hump" like appearance chronically seen in office/desk workers and students.
At Rider Chiropractic Sports and Injury, we often use multiple techniques to decrease the pain and change the biomechanics of your spine.
- Dry Needling the suboccipital muscles
- ART protolcols on the postieror neck and anterior chest muscles.
- Chiropractic Manipulation/Adjustment
- Exercises to strengthen the anterior neck and back muscles
If you are currently suffering from headaches of this nature/condition, come get evaluated and back to enjoying your daily activities.
