Everyone is different, so you may experience migraines as a result of several different triggers. At Dynamic Chiropractic, Dr. Bieganski, DC, can help you determine your triggers, so you know what to avoid and prevent the onset of a migraine headache. 


What causes headaches?


Tension headaches are the most common type of headache and are the result of tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, jaw, and scalp. Typically, stress or anxiety causes tension in your muscles and results in a headache. Sinus headaches are another common type of headache that occurs when your sinus passages become inflamed, often from a sinus infection. 


Other common headache causes include:


  • Poor posture
  • Skipped meals
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Food and drinks
  • Hangovers
  • High blood pressure
  • Dehydration
  • Overuse of pain medication
