Exercises you can do to prevent and manage headaches from the neck:
- Correct your posture: try to avoid slouching
- Chin tuck: use your hand to gently press your chin straight back, hold it for a few seconds and then release (image it as a filing cabinet, going straight back and not wonky off to one side)
- Ear to shoulder: gently tilt your head side to side, 3/4 each way
These exercises should make the pain ease in your head. It is okay if your neck is still a bit sore. However, if it is getting worse in your head, you need to stop and talk to your Physio about this.
