Headaches are increasingly common in this busy world. In Australia, around 15% of us take painkillers for a headache at any time

Sometimes headaches are due to an underlying medical condition, but often, they are simply a result of stress, dehydration, a late work night, poor postures or just overdoing it at your HIIT class! A persistent headache can be a sign that something is wrong, and you should chat to your physio or doctor.

Addressing a few simple lifestyle habits can also help reduce your headaches such as avoiding excess caffeine and alcohol, exercising, practicing good sleep hygiene, and keeping hydrated.

There are different types of headaches including migraine, cluster, sinus and cervicogenic, so chat to your Physio for relief and to get an accurate diagnosis and management plan.
