With 50-75% of the world’s population experiencing at least one headache in the past year, it’s safe to say that headaches are one of the most common disorders of the nervous system. You may know that tension headaches are responsible for a large portion of the above statistic. However you probably didn’t know that these are frequently caused by poor posture. Poor posture creates tension in your upper back, neck, and shoulders, which leads to a throbbing pain at the base of your skull that propagates into your forehead and face. [cite]
It’s generally accepted that we all spend nearly one-third of our lives working. So it’s not surprising that much of our pain is caused by poor posture and habits during the working hours. Below are a few common postures — particularly in the work-from-home era — that can lead to headaches:
We all get lazy and default to whatever takes the least effort from time-to-time. We get it and are guilty of it too. However, it’s much easier to implement a few simple tricks to correct a bad posture than it is to spend thousands of dollars and months or years of time trying to fix the pain and side effects from chronically sitting in a way that wreaks havoc on your spine.

One of the key benefits of investing in chiropractic treatment is that it works wonders for improving posture and reducing associated pain and headaches. Chiropractors do this by making targeted adjustments to your shoulders, neck, and back that help increase movement in your joints, reduce tension in surrounding muscles, and align your spine. This is then paired with individualized in-clinic therapies that build muscle memory, allowing you to maintain the improved alignment from the adjustments so you can experience long-lasting enhancements to your posture.
