headaches

Nothing ruins the day like a terrible case of a headache. Unfortunately, headache remains a very common condition in Australia, in pretty much the same way that it is a very common condition in other parts of the globe.

People experience all sorts of headaches. Regardless if you are experiencing episodes of tension headache, migraine, cluster headache, sinus headache, rebound headache, or exertion headache, headaches require immediate and effective relief. This is exactly why fifteen percent of the total Australian population is known to take pain relievers at any given time.

In most cases, headaches have become so ingrained in everyday life that most people think that it is nothing but normal. Needless to say, this is unfounded and nothing short of wrong. Persistent headaches, for instance, can be symptomatic of more serious illnesses. Constantly using pain relievers to dull the pain basically translates to turning the warning signal that alerts you about what could be underlying health problems.

Causes

There are just too many things that could potentially trigger headaches. Among the most common causes include: stress, poor posture, accidents, certain medications, specific scents and odours, pollution, and dietary factors. Among the most commonly overlooked causes of headache, however, is vertebral dysfunction.

Vertebral dysfunction is basically nerve irritation in the upper neck that results from poorly functioning spinal joints. Since the nerves in the upper neck are anatomically connected to the scalp and face, irritation of these nerves can easily result to episodes of head discomfort.
