Death, taxes, and…headaches? Almost everyone will experience a headache at some point in their life, and over 50% of people will deal with the effects of headaches in a given year. Fortunately, headaches are rarely life-threatening. However, for people dealing with chronic headaches…they can dramatically impact your quality of life.
Why it Matters:
The International Headache Society has classified over 150 different types of headaches. The most common are migraines, tension and cluster headaches. Knowing what kind of headache you’re dealing with is the first step towards finding the best plan of care to find relief.
Now that you’ve identified your headache type, we can start to unpack the root cause. As we discussed last week, often a few simple changes in your daily routine have the potential to reduce or eliminate chronic headaches for good! If you have any questions, just ask!
