The most common cause of headaches stems from the neck. Excessive screen time in the way of laptop, desktop, iPad or constant texting keeps your head down and increases the pressure on your neck and upper back causing it to have problems over time and refer pain into your head. A lot of these headaches start as tightness between the shoulder blades which then tightens up the muscles in the tops of your shoulders and then radiates into your head.
 
Getting regular chiropractic adjustments to help improve the mobility of your spine will also allow you to sit up for extended periods of time with good posture. Chiropractic adjustments will return your spine’s function and movement to normal and will reduce the amount of muscle pull happening between your neck and your skull thus reducing the amount of pain you feel in your head.
 
Exercise is a great way to improve your posture. One of the exercises most frequently recommended is simply pinching your shoulder blades toward your middle belt loop. That means down and back. Commonly patients will bring their shoulders toward their ears when asked to do this. Don’t. Bring them together and down. Also, standing against the wall with your eyes pointed straight ahead and arms out to your sides in the position of a cross. (with bent arms) you want your heels, butts, shoulders, wrists and the back of their head to touch the wall. All of this while looking straight ahead, not up toward the ceiling. You can make big improvements in your posture doing those exercises, especially when combined with chiropractic adjustments.
