What's Causing Your Headache?

One of the most common and debilitating conditions that we see at Family Health Professionals Helensvale are headaches. Though common, there is nothing normal about having a headache. Anytime you have pain in your body, it’s a warning sign that stress is affecting you. It’s particularly true when it comes to pain around your brain.

Nerve interference is altering the dynamics in the upper neck, causing a headache that is called cervicogenic. This is just another way of saying that it’s coming from the neck. But what’s the cause?

Where Your Headache is Coming From

The sources we see most often that are the cause of headaches include:

  • Stress
  • Injury
  • Improper posture
  • Lack of sleep
  • Food sensitivities

If your headache is due to a mechanical issue, we can treat the spinal condition, rehabilitate your muscles and balance your posture. You may find that the severity and frequency of your headaches reduce.

The Chiropractic profession has been providing relief for headaches for over a hundred years. If your headaches are not a Chiropractic issue, Dr Hennessy will refer you for further examinations with your medical professional.
