Headaches are one of the most common, debilitating problems facing Americans. Researchers estimate that one out of seven Americans suffer from migraines and/or severe headaches. That statistic doesn’t include mild or moderate headaches that even more people experience. Though there are many reasons why headaches can occur, including from a cold or infection or even stress, there is one cause of headaches that can make them linger and disrupt a person’s day-to-day life. That cause is improper breathing.
Among various problems, improper breathing can cause two issues: 1) improper breathing can put strain on head and back muscles, and 2) improper breathing leads to sleep apnea. These two issues will directly cause headaches.
