In brief: Treat neck too!
Chronic daily headaches can be quite a challenge.
Since most ha are cervicogenic, coming from the neck, you must treat that component to determine the relationship. Muscle tension, sinus issues, cervical disc problems may all contribute to the symptoms. Occipital neuralgia, radiating pain across the back of the head from the neck is often a problem. Must get the neck looked at and review options.
