Headaches are becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s society. In fact, 50% of the population will be affected by headaches during the year. Although headaches are common, they are not normal.
There are many different types of headaches, each of which have their own cause/s. Common causes of headaches include stress, muscle overactivity, nerve irritation as well as vascular issues. Psychological and physical stress can cause muscle tension at the base of the head, which may lead to loss of neck motion and ultimately headaches. Nerve irritation may be secondary to misalignment of neck vertebrae, abnormal postural changes or excessively tight musculature.
