Banish Bad Headaches in Huntersville NC

If you struggle with frequent or intense headaches, you know how debilitating a headache can be. Light hurts your eyes. Every sound is magnified. Your entire head pulses, or sometimes a certain spot in your head feels like someone is driving a spike into your head.

You don’t want to take medicine for headaches on a regular basis, and with good reason. Over-the-counter medications can be rough on your liver, and you know there has to be a natural way to avoid getting headaches and to quickly get relief when you do get a headache.

Headache Treatments That Work

If you’ve got a headache, try the following natural remedies:

  • Drink a large glass of water (the majority of headaches are caused by dehydration or sinus pressure, and water helps with both)
  • Clear your sinuses by gently pinching the bridge of your nose and waiting until you feel your sinuses opening up
  • Take a hot shower (opens the sinuses and removes allergens or scent-based causes of a headache)
  • Lie down in a dark, quiet place (many headaches are brought on by or exacerbated by stress and overstimulation)
  • Experiment with reflexology such as massaging your toes and the tips of your fingers. Many people report experiencing significant relief when the fingertips are simply gently squeezed for 10-30 seconds at a time, then released.
  • Ask a trusted friend or partner for a gentle scalp massage.

Chiropractic for Chronic Headache Relief

It’s one thing to get a headache once in a great while; it’s a much bigger problem if you are dealing with chronic or debilitating headaches.

While you probably know that chiropractors often treat back pain, headaches also usually respond very well to chiropractic care. In fact, headaches are the second most commonly treated conditions (by chiropractors). Headaches have been well-studied, and as you can see here, over 260 peer-reviewed articles conclude that chiropractic care works for headache relief.

One particularly impressive study concluded that 22 percent of people suffering from headaches who sought out chiropractic treatment experienced a 90 percent drop in number of headaches and 49 percent of the study participants reported a significant reduction in intensity of pain.
