Neck Pain and Stiffness With Migraines Anyone?

My neck seems to consistently tighten up as my migraine is coming on. Does this happen to anyone else? Has anyone found any helpful neck exercises? Any advice or thoughts would be great.

  1. Hi, Scott! Ironically we just had an advocate make a video with neck exercises last week! This should be a good starting place for you: https://migraine.com/living-migraine/stretches-relieve-neck-pain/

    You might also want to check out biofeedback. I remember a specific article about this I wanted to give you, but I can't seem to put my hands on it now. We have lots of information on the topic, though -- you can search for "biofeedback" in the top left of the site.

    Hope this helps!

    1. Yes. Look into "cervicogenic" migraine. I've been prescribed flexiril and also physical therapy.

      I also have c1,c3 radiation induced osteoarthritis which triggers common migraine.
