Mobility Monday: Slaying the Exertional Headache Beast

By: Joel Luedke

Have headaches?  Get them when you start working out?  This is the video for you and self treating them.  There are so many soft tissues that can cause this problem and the all surround your neck and upper back, not to mention your position.

Your neck position can't change unless you change your back and shoulder position.  This allows you to stop crushing down on vertebrae in your cervical spine and putting pressure on nerves and blood vessels.  

These headaches can occur with exertion but also just with tension and the same techniques work for that.   Give this a try in coordination with massage or chiropractic but give yourself the tools to help fix yourself.

Things It Can Help:
-Neck Pain
-Upper Back Pain
