Too Much or Too Little | By Dr Michael Osborne

Too Much or Too Little

What’s behind that headache? Headaches can be among the most debilitating forms of pain you can experience, and research shows that the majority of us will experience at least one headache each year. For pain that is so common, and often so intense, it is understandable that so many people turn to regular painkillers to keep headaches under control. What is frequently more powerful, however, is to figure out what is causing your headache and attempt to address that.

For example, many headaches are caused by too much. Stress obviously causes headaches when we have too much of it in our lives, but less obviously, too much tension in the shoulders, neck and jaw can also contribute to headaches.

Other headaches are caused by too little. We’ve probably all woken up in the morning with a headache and one reason can be too little sleep. Another, less obvious cause is dehydration, being a sign we have had too little water.

Of course, some headaches can have serious causes, so, particularly if you’re experiencing a new type of headache, it’s a good idea to get it assessed by a health professional.  Our team of  Chiropractors are well positioned to help. Experts in spinal joint motion, our Chiropractors can assess the joints in your spine and address any impact they might be having on tension in and around your head. If a more serious cause is suspected, we are trained to refer you to an appropriate practitioner for further assessment.  If you’d like to address the cause of your headaches, get in touch today.  I look forward to meeting you!

To Your Best Health!
