If you have never suffered from a headache – then consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Headaches are one of the most common problems to affect us, and date back as far as 1500BC.
According the Australian Bureau Of Statistics, in 1995 approximately 15% of the population were taking medication for headaches. So you are not alone. But the good news is you do not have to suffer in silence.
What Causes Headaches?
Headaches can be caused by a variety of different conditions. Some of the more common causes are, stiff and tight neck muscles and joints, eyes – through eye strain, the sinuses in your face, trauma – such as Whiplash following a car accident, stress, poor posture, muscle weakness, TMJ (jaw) dysfunctions – and the list goes on. There are of course, more sinister causes of headaches such as tumour, bleeding in the brain or infection. The staff at Equilibrium Sports and Spinal clinic are well trained to assess what is causing your headache and rule out any serious pathology.
