Neck pain causing headaches
What is Causing YOUR Neck Pain?
Let’s start with the central nervous system…
Modern lifestyle is also extremely stressful in comparison to the lifestyle led by our distant ancestors that we evolved from (even though we live longer, and in theory have less threats to our safety than they did). Whilst they dealt with irregular, acute stressors – such as coming face to face with a lion, we’re exposed to constant small stressors such as urgent emails, phone-calls, news headlines etc. Our bodies stress response is the exact same in both situations, though of course the urgent email evokes a response of less intensity. But multiply that less intense response by multiple times throughout the day and it is clear that overall the total stress we incur is much higher.
Furthermore, while our ancestors would then have to engage in either flight or flight to deal with the threat – we continue to sit at our desks and wait for the next stressor to come!
