12 Oct Another day, another headache? It doesn’t have to be like that.
More than half of Australians don’t consider headaches to be serious enough to seek help. Don’t be one of them…
You’ve woken up with a headache. Again. You’re starting to worry about how often they are occurring. More pressingly, you’re wondering how you’ll make it through the day.
You’re not alone. It is estimated that up to 7 million Australians suffer from headaches, and a staggering 1 in 20 adults in the developed world gets them every day. Studies have shown that over 23% of households in Australia contain one person who suffers from severe headaches. (Australian Bureau of Statistics)
More than half of Australians don’t consider headaches to be a serious enough condition to warrant seeking advice, and manage the symptoms instead by popping pills.
The good news is that in reading this, you’re one of a growing number looking for a solution. And Relinque Sports and Spinal Group is the right place to come.
The most common type of headaches we see are ‘tension type’, and the pain is usually experienced on both sides of the head. These kinds of headache are often caused by muscle tension—due to overuse, poor posture and sitting down for long periods of the day—which results in joint restrictions in the neck and upper back, stress, anxiety and fatigue.
