What you don't Know about Headaches may Cause Your Headaches

What are common causes of migraines in men?

There are countless types of headaches and even more factors that cause headaches. We can't tell you everything about all of them, but we thought we would tell you about some of them and what you can do to reduce the frequency of their occurrence or prevent them. Here are some of the more common types of headaches, what causes them, and what you can do to help prevent them.

Types of Headaches:


Tension Headaches

These are also called Chronic Daily Headaches and are the most common type of headache. Here are some of the causes of Tension Headaches you should know.

  • Starting a new job
  • Losing a job
  • Vacation
  • Difficulties at home
  • Work Deadlines
  • Obesity
  • Not getting enough sleep

  • Emotional Stress
  • Food Sensitivity
  • Caffeine
  • Changes in Weather Conditions
  • Menstrual Periods
  • Excessive Fatigue
  • Skipping Meals
  • Changing Normal Sleep Patterns

Sinus Headaches

These are marked by a constant pain in the cheekbones, forehead, or bridge of the nose. Here are some of the causes of Sinus Headaches you should know.

  • Sinus Congestion
  • Sudden Movement or straining (This intensifies but does not cause these headaches)
  • Sinus blockage


Do you suffer from one of these common types of headaches? Do you suffer from another type of headache? The cure may be something as simple as a better night's sleep, a dietary change, or a change in your daily routine. Though, the answer may also be in the importance of your spinal alignment, so your body can function properly. Changes in blood, cerebral spinal fluid and nerve flow may be to blame for all of these headaches. A common cause is a misalignment of the upper neck. This type of misalignment can be corrected by a specific specialized correction.
