Do you suffer headaches?

November 15, 2016

Headache is one of the most common health-related conditions in Australia, with around 15% of us taking pain-relieving medication for a headache at any given time. It is likely that nearly all of us will experience headache during our lifetime. People of any age can be affected, but people between the ages of 25 and 44 years are more likely to report having a headache. There are many possible causes of headaches. These may include:

  • Acute injury to the neck (e.g. whiplash)

  • Biomechanical dysfunction (joints not moving properly and muscle imbalances)

  • Stress & tension related (including muscle tightness, jaw clenching)

  • Postural misalignment leading to referral of pain from tight muscles/joints in the neck

  • Secondary to poor ergonomics including desk, bike, sleeping.

  • Related to food intake

  • Other causes - if medical we may refer you on to your Doctor or Dentist
