Brief Answer:
They are connected

Detailed Answer:
hi thanks for your question. your head and neck are connected by muscles at the back. the trapezius muscle is the biggest one. if you have strained your trapezius muscle you will experience pain from the base of your skull into your neck, thoracic spine and shoulder blade.

I hope this answers your question
