Home > Health & Wellness > Health Library > Headache Prevention: Posture and Body Mechanics
Good posture and the way you move your body can help prevent tension
in your neck, shoulders, and upper back muscles. If your headaches seem to be
related to tension in this area, be aware of your posture and position during
daily activities. This may help prevent headaches.
Use good body mechanics all the time, not just when you have a
headache or back pain.
