If you are suffering from chronic headaches or migraines, you do not need convincing that they are one of the most painful and debilitating conditions you could possibly endure. Millions upon millions of dollars a year are spent on trying to find relief from this crippling illness. But what causes migraines?
Migraines and headaches may also be caused by a musculoskeletal problems which may causes inflammation and tension of the joints, muscles and blood vessels at the base of the neck and transfer pain up into the skull.
Migraine headaches can be triggered by some items in your diet (like caffeine) or your lifestyle (sudden weight loss, stress or lack of sleep). What is important is to get a clear picture of what is going on and why, through a thorough history, physical examination and discussing these findings before any care is undertaken with an allied health practitioner.
Note: All therapy is based upon an accurate medical diagnosis of your condition including collating a thorough case history, including ongoing clinical conditions, present medications, traumatic/surgical history, and lifestyle factors, prior to developing a tailored therapy plan for your particular condition(s).
