Headache Relief The Natural Way
Headaches can ruin your day quickly. And when you begin having them more frequently, they can hinder many areas of your life. Getting relief is important, and always taking pain medication isn’t the answer. Eventually, the pain relief medication you’re taking will stop being as effective.
With the many different reasons for your headaches, we’ll need to uncover the type of headache you are experiencing to give you the best treatment to put an end to the pain. At The Natural Health Improvement Center, we know exactly how to uncover the root cause and what needs to be done in order to eliminate the headaches that are affecting your daily life.
Stress is, without a doubt, one of the leading causes of headaches.
It often begins with tension in your shoulder and neck, and then suddenly, your suffering from frequent and painful headaches. While we wish that we could get rid of stress altogether, there are various treatments such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, and a Cranio-Sacral Therapy massage that will reduce your body’s tension.
Acupuncture is a great way to relieve stress. The tiny needles will aid in the natural release of endorphins, and this will help to change your mood and reduce your stress. While chiropractic care will help realign your spine, take the pressure off of your nervous system to improve your body’s communication. And Cranio-Sacral Therapy will reduce the tension around your nervous system, improving tension headaches.
Tension headaches or stress headaches usually feel like a band of pressure around your head. This tightness is often a dull pain of pressure that lasts between 30 minutes and a few days. These are just a result of stress in the sense of a rough day; they are often caused when your neck muscles are overstretched, and the muscles become weak. This is a result of poor posture, which is usually from looking down at your phone or hunched over your computer for hours at a time. Massage and spinal adjustments will often give you relief.
Cluster headaches are another common type of headache, and a pinched or compressed nerve usually causes it. This type of headache is usually severe pain that can be felt in your forehead, temples, teeth, nose, neck, or shoulders. They last between 5 to 10 minutes and come and go quickly, which is why they are named cluster headaches. You’ll likely need to realign your spine to relieve the pressure from nerves to give you relief.
