Headaches… there’s something we can all relate to. What causes them? Why do we get them? What can we do about them? There are several types of headaches that all have differing causes or triggers. The environment you live in, the behaviors you engage in, and your body itself can all lead to or cause headaches. Examples of this include; stress, noise, lack of sleep, dehydration, blood pressure, certain foods/liquids, physical exertion, etc.
The most common type of headaches are Cervicogenic Headaches. These are headaches caused by stress, and poor posture. The stress and bad posture causes an increased demand on the neck muscles and thus increased muscle tension, leading to what is known as a Cervicogenic aka Tension Headache. Most headaches do not raise red flags for a more serious underlying problem, however some do. This is why if you are suffering from frequent or severe headaches you should consult a doctor.
