Do you suffer for Headaches or Migraines?
Headaches are a very common complaint. Almost everyone suffers from them at some point in their life. Some headaches are short-lived times of discomfort, or they can be far more debilitating and long term pain.
Headaches and jaw pain occur for many reasons
Tension from muscles in neck, head and upper back
Neck joint dysfunction
Migraines from changes in blood flow and hormones
From trauma eg. from a fall, whiplash, or sporting injury
Migraines are a bit trickier than headaches, and prevention largely lies in avoiding the triggers. The improvements in muscle balance, posture and circulation resulting from treatment can often reduce the frequency or intensity of migraines, and minimise their disruption to your life and/or the amount of medication you need. Common triggers you should try to avoid:
lack of sleep or jet lag
hunger or dehydration
lights and sounds
