CHRONIC HEADACHES / CHRONIC NECK PAIN
TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN

Headache Statistics

“When asked about four common types of pain, respondents of a National Institute of Health Statistics survey indicated that low back pain was the most common (27%), followed by severe headache or migraine pain (15%), neck pain (15%) and facial ache or pain (4%).”    The website of the American Academy of Pain Medicine quoting from the National Centers for Health Statistics (CDC) report called, Chartbook on Trends in the Health of Americans 2006, Special Feature: Pain.
Although I am not sure about today’s statistics (those quoted above are 8 years old), I can authoritatively tell you that if someone has CHRONIC NECK PAIN, they are likely to have CHRONIC HEADACHES as well (HERE).  And guess what?  The opposite is also true.  These twin trouble makers are found together about as frequently as terrorists are seen toting Kalashnikovs.  Although the causes of Chronic Neck Pain are many, there is one that seems to consistently evade even the most sleuthful of physicians —- ADHESIONS OF THE FASCIA.

If you don’t already know what Fascia is, just click on the previous link, and understand that Fascia is being touted as a potential suspect as far as the UNIVERSAL CAUSE of all disease is concerned (HERE).  Probably the most devastating feature of Adhesions in the Fascia is the fact that this tissue is not only the single most pain-sensitive in the body, it cannot be seen with even the most technologically advanced imaging techniques available today.  This leads to accusations of malingering or drug seeking — and no matter how you slice it, this always ends in a bad way for you, the patient.   For more information (as well as Video Testimonials on the subject), click on the top two links on this page.
