How common are headaches? Glen Waverley Chiropractor, Dr Shaun Beovich from Waverley Chiropractic Centre, says that headaches are one of the most common ailments to affect Australians, with between 75 and 90 per cent of the population suffering one or more headaches in any one year.
The range of causes for the common headache varies from neck, sinus, dental and eye problems to metabolic and hormonal disorders.
Because headaches are so common, most people think that getting a headache is a normal part of life. This is simply not true. Headaches are a sign that something is wrong.
Chiropractic is fast becoming a recognised health choice in the care of headaches providing a natural, drug free treatment with proven results.
One study, conducted at Macquarie University, specific chiropractic adjustment to the spine significantly reduced migraines in 71 per cent of the people surveyed. The frequency, duration, severity and amount of medication all decreased markedly.
Essentially, Chiropractic care is effective in headache management because it corrects imbalances in the neck and spine which are often the cause of headaches. Chiropractors can use specific, gentle spinal adjustments to correct the imbalances to alleviate headaches and can also provide lifestyle advice on helping to prevent their re-occurence.

Dr Shaun began his Chiropractic career in Glen Waverley with his father, Dr James Beovich (Chiropractor, Pharmacist and Acupuncturist) in late 1994 after 5 years Chiropractic study at RMIT University and 1 year of Science at Monash University. Dr Shaun was born and bred in Glen Waverley having gone to primary school up the road at St Leonards and then to Mazenod College in Mulgrave. His dad started his practice at home and it wasn’t uncommon to have patients hanging upside down on our monkey bars in the backyard!
Initially Dr Shaun, being into triathlons, touch footy and AFL was heavily involved in Sports Chiropractic, looking after football teams like Mazenod OCFC in the VAFA (his eldest son plays for them now) and State Junior Volleyball teams along with experience at National and International level. In Fiji he also presented to the Fiji Olympic Medical Team on sporting neck injuries.
In 1996 he moved to Fiji with his wife Cara and spent 2 years on the outer islands living in villages and doing volunteer Chiropractic work. The 1st of his 6 kids was born on one of these islands. He then moved to the mainland and set up 2 Chiropractic centres in Sigatoka and Suva, again making it affordable for locals to access quality spinal health care. He wrote a weekly column on natural health in The Fiji Times and The Daily Post newspapers and was often seen on inter-island ferries or in the back of a ute with his trusty portable table.
In 2000 the family returned to Melbourne and he has been with his brother, Chiropractor Dr Mark Beovich at Bayswater Chiropractic Centre ever since. His family has grown to six plus 2 home stay students from China. With this, although still having an interest in sporting injuries, his focus has shifted to babies, children and wellness care.
Underpinning all of this is his faith. Wellness involves Mind, Body and Spirit. Dr Shaun is a Christian and is an active member of The King’s Way Christian Fellowship. Recently he was blessed to be able to lead a mission trip back to Fiji with his family. He is also President of the Parents and Friends Association of his kids school, St Andrews Christian College, which he has been involved with for the last 8 years.
