Headaches may be caused by a number of sources; Lifestyle factors or medical conditions, including stress, diet, dehydration, sinus issues and high blood pressure are common causes. There are also less common serious underlying conditions such as brain tumors which must not be forgotten. However, a significant number of headaches are musculoskeletal in nature, including referred pain from intervertebral joints (in the spine) in your neck, referred pain from muscles connecting to the skull, as well as temporomandibular joint (jaw) dysfunction. Headaches arising from musculoskeletal dysfunction can be treated with physiotherapy, with a combination of manual therapy, improved posture, and a home exercise program.
