Do you get headaches or migraines?
A headache can really ruin your day and if they occur frequently, they can ruin your life by stopping you from doing things you enjoy doing.
The Migraine Foundation of Australia estimates that 12% of Australians aged 15 years and over experience migraines at a cost of $35.7 billion per year. Headaches can be split into different categories such as tension type, migraines or cervicogenic which means they start in the neck.

Factors such as your stress levels, toxic load, posture patterns, history of whiplash and head trauma can all increase your risk of developing headaches.
There can be a number of underlying reasons why people get headaches so it’s therefore important to have them assessed by a qualified health professional such as a chiropractor.
