Although they may have a variety of causes, headaches all say one thing: There is something wrong.  Chiropractors can help with headaches that stem from things like pinched nerves in the back and neck, strain in the muscles from sitting too long, injuries, and even just wear and tear on the spine.  With 90% of Americans suffering from headaches, here are some tips to help:

 

  • Minimize stress – Exercise helps alleviate stress.  It doesn’t matter if you start small, just start. Finding an interesting or fun hobby is another stress reliever.  Lastly, don’t forget to laugh! Whatever you find to be funny, do that often.
  • Correct posture – Whether you are standing or sitting, it is important to remember to straighten your back and make your head level with your body as much as possible.
  • Food – Some people have intolerances, and it never occurred to them that this could be the cause of chronic headaches.  Start a basic elimination diet of foods you think possibly could be causing the headaches.
  • Sleep – Snoring, teeth grinding, and using the wrong pillow all can contribute to headaches.  Your primary doctor can help with snoring, your dentist can help with teeth grinding, and your chiropractor can help find the correct pillow to prevent stress on your neck.
  • See your general doctor, your dentist, and your chiropractic doctor regularly.  Staying on top of your health and being proactive can help treat and prevent headaches.  Take care of yourself and be your own health champion.
