Foot Alignment Clinic LogoHeadaches after running can be caused from common postural conditions and faults. Anterior pelvic tilt creates increased thoracic kyphosis and “the forward head posture”. This creates pain producing trigger points in the occipital region which may be the cause of common tension headaches. If your headaches are relieved by treatment to your neck or back but continually return, then a full posture assessment may be required, including foot and gait analysis. Remember to replace fluids when running.
