What Causes Headaches?
There are many types of headaches, each with different causes. Often headaches will have more than one contributing factor.
Common types of triggers for headaches will sometimes be lifestyle. Stress, poor diet, lack of exercise or sleep and tension may influence a headache. There may also be serious underlying medical conditions contributing to your headache. Some common types of headaches include, tension headache, cervicogenic headache and migraines.
Is Your Neck Causing the Headache?
A new direction in chronic headache treatment is establishing a strong link to poor neck movement. We find many chronic suffers have not explored the possibility that their headache is being caused by problems with their neck joints. Headaches or migraine symptoms that are caused by an issue in the neck are called cervicogenic headaches. This type of headache is responsive to care which aims to restore normal neck movement.
