We provide individualized, non-invasive, and medication-free treatment for a recurring headache or a migraine. Read on to learn more.
What's Causing Your Headache or Migraine?
Headaches are a relatively broad health condition and can range in everything from type to severity to frequency. The following factors are some of the most common causes of headache pain:
- Poor posture (which can lead to tension and strain in the jaw, head, neck, shoulders, and upper back)
- Excessive screen time
- Strong sounds, smells, or lights
- Low blood sugar
- Poor sleep and/or high stress
Headache pain can be felt anywhere in the head, including the front, back, side, or even right behind the eyes. Migraine headaches, however, are generally considered much more severe, described as throbbing or pounding, and occur on one or both sides of the head. Their exact cause is unknown, but some theories point to a dichotomy of constriction/dilation of cerebral blood vessels (and genetics are likely to play a role).
