Headaches have multiple causes.
Whenever I speak to people suffering from headaches, all too often I hear the same story over and over. One patient told me she has a stressful job, so she frequently has a horrible headache at the end of the day. She usually goes home and takes five or six Advil. That’s just a typical part of her day.
Unfortunately that’s a typical part of the day for many people, and that’s not okay. Aside from the side effects of all that daily medication, many times the medication is just not necessary.
I have a question for you. Do you think you get headaches because you don’t have enough Advil in your system? Of course not. You get headaches because there is some aspect of your environment to which you aren’t responding well — noise, stress, dehydration, and so on.
There are nerves in the upper part of your neck (in the area of the C1 vertebrae) that affect the blood supply to your brain. Certain spinal misalignments can put pressure on those nerves, restricting that blood supply. This can lead to headaches, as well as other problems such as fatigue or dizziness. Gentle adjustments from your family chiropractor can relieve that pressure and reduce or eliminate the pain in your head.
If you have frequent headaches, do the following:
– Drink water. Dehydration can cause headaches.
– Eat right. Blood sugar imbalance can lead to headaches.
– Visit your family chiropractor to make sure your body is functioning at its best.
