Headaches And Migranes

Many people think headaches are a normal part of life. Indeed, studies in Australia have found that each year approximately 87% of people will experience a headache (1). But while headaches may be common, there's certainly nothing normal about them.

"Each year approximately 87% of people will experience a headache"

Tension headaches are the most common form of headaches affecting around 75% of all headache sufferers. Typical symptoms of a tension headache are a constant dull, achy feeling either on one side or both sides of the head, a tight band like feeling around the head or base of the skull, or aching behind the eyes. Tension headaches are typically the result of stress or poor posture which puts additional strain on the spine and muscles of the upper back and neck.

Migraine headaches affect millions of Australians each year, and are more common in women than men. Migraine symptoms are generally an intense throbbing headache frequently associated with a sensitivity to light or sound. Many of those who suffer from migraines will also have a visual experience known as an aura prior to the onset of the migraine. Migraines are often also associated with a trigger these could be things such as a lack of sleep, stress, flickering lights, altered hormone levels and some foods.
