Are migraines, tension headaches, facial or neck problems making your life hell? We spoke with the team from James Street Dentists on what could really be the cause of the common headache and it may not be what you think!

Do you suffer from the type of headaches that are crippling and you just have to curl up in bed in a quiet, dark room for hours or days until it goes away? Or perhaps you get the throbbing tension headaches that tend to set in at the end of the day. Have you ever woken up in the morning to a headache that seems to rob you of zest and vitality?

Most headache sufferers have seen many health care practitioners, had multiple tests and have tried numerous diets, exercises, pills or devices they have been recommended and nothing has changed. Spending more money with little chance of success is a big and understandable fear for many. Some headache solutions can help address the symptoms and make you feel better temporarily but aren’t necessarily getting to the root cause of the issue.

Addressing these pain problems requires a thorough history taking, complete physical examination of structure and function, good diagnosis and a team approach. The team at James Street Dentists are world experts in the area of headaches and neck pain and have a multidisciplinary approach with their care. They work closely with many other health practitioners, with a common goal of improving their patients’ quality of life and getting to the core of the problem.

Perhaps there’s much more to your headaches than first thought? Have a chat with James Street Dentists to find out more.
