If I feel stiffness in my mid spine after doing headstand does this mean my head and neck are in the wrong position?

Where does doing a headstands strengthen? Neck? Back?

Marilyn - I believe that if you look up the pose, then check the contradications, it would tell you there, but i'm not sure, personally. If I had glaucoma, I would definately check with my doctor before doing any inversions.

The headstand for 3+ min. release my back pain. So those who comfortable with inversions can be benefited. Good luck.

I have read that people who are diagnosed with Glaucoma are ill advised to do headstands. Please comment. Thank you.
