22 May Headaches Caused by Loss of Normal Cervical Lordosis and Forward Head Posture
The cervical spine is the part of the spine that makes up your neck. It is made up of seven vertebrae, which are stacked on top of each other. The normal curve of the cervical spine is called cervical lordosis. Cervical lordosis helps to support the weight of the head and to protect the spinal cord.
Forward head posture is a condition in which the head is held forward of the normal position. This can be caused by a number of factors, including poor posture, sitting for long periods of time, and using electronic devices.
When the head is held in a forward position, it puts extra strain on the muscles and ligaments in the neck. This can lead to headaches, neck pain, and other problems.
The loss of normal cervical lordosis can also contribute to headaches. When the cervical spine is not in its normal position, it can put pressure on the nerves and blood vessels in the neck. This can lead to headaches, numbness, tingling, and other problems.
Here are some additional information about headaches caused by forward head posture and loss of normal cervical lordosis:
The type of headache that is most commonly associated with forward head posture and loss of normal cervical lordosis is a tension headache.
Tension headaches are characterized by a dull, aching pain that is felt on both sides of the head. The pain may be mild to severe and can last for hours or even days.
Other types of headaches that can be caused by forward head posture and loss of normal cervical lordosis include migraines and cervicogenic headaches.
Migraines are characterized by a severe, throbbing pain that is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.
Cervicogenic headaches are caused by irritation of the nerves in the neck. These headaches are typically felt on one side of the head and are often accompanied by neck pain.
