Are you one of the 15% of Australians who are taking painkillers right at this moment for a headache?
Headaches are so common that most people think they are a ‘normal part of life’, however a persistent headache is actually a sign that something is wrong.
What type of headache are you suffering from?
There are a range of different types of headaches, including:
- Tension headache
- Sinus headache
- Rebound headache
- Exertion headache
- Cluster headache
What is causing your headache?
One of the most overlooked causes of headache is nerve irritation in the upper neck due to poorly functioning spinal joints; a condition known as Vertebral Subluxation. Since the nerves of the upper neck supply areas of the scalp and face as well as influencing the blood vessels in the skull, irritation to these nerves can and often lead to headache.
Headaches can also arise due to a variety of other reasons as well, such as:
- Poor posture
- Dietary irregularities
- Environmental factors (e.g. strong odours, pollution)
