What Is a Head and Neck Exam?

The head and neck examination is a part of the physical exam that looks for head and neck sickness or illness symptoms. Scanning, palpation, and suctioning are all part of the head and neck exam. The physician uses the information obtained from the physical evaluation of the head and neck and the information from the history to develop an alternative diagnosis and treatment strategy for the patient.

One of the essential things you utilize daily is your head and neck; they are the number one thing many people cannot live without. Because your head and neck are so essential, you must ensure that you and your loved ones get their tests completed on time and at the appropriate time. Regular patient examination or checkup can help us identify any immediate difficulties they may be experiencing, like neck pains and headaches. After that, the patient should be checked again every month. If you are getting chronic double vision episodes, greatly consider coming in to see us: call us today to get started.

Why do you sometimes feel headache and neck pain at night?

Perhaps they begin after dinner, just when you are winding down for the evening. Perhaps they occur shortly before you lay down to sleep. They may even awaken you in the middle of the night. Nighttime headaches and neck pain are inconvenient no matter what time they occur. Nocturnal headaches can cause further issues the next day, like fatigue and restlessness, if they interfere with sleep.

What to do when you feel headache and neck pain?

Headache and neck are concerning if you do not know where it comes from or if it occurs frequently. It usually begins with a problem within our bodies, and occasionally it begins elsewhere other than the eyes. For instance, if you have high blood sugar, a history of stroke, or age-related factors, these conditions might be the source of your headache and neck pain. Other times, the reason may be more serious, such as active stroke symptoms or a variety of other medical issues. If you have this kind of pain,  seek medical attention or call us right away.
