There are a number of factors that can cause headaches; some include: dietary issues, too much blue light from your computer, tablet or mobile phone, poor mobility in your cervical spine, pressure on the nerves exiting from the base of the skull, etc. Headaches can be debilitating, affect your daily activities, and down right annoying. We have helped many patients get their headaches under control by identifying and treating the cause(s).
Hydration & Mobility
One of the easiest things you can do to potentially curb your headaches is to stay properly hydrated. The brain needs a tremendous amount of fluid to work at it's peak performance.
The second easiest thing you can do would be to do some gentle stretching for the neck and shoulders. Tension causing imbalances can contribute to the cause your headaches.
Out of alignment
If you have old injuries, use your body in active ways such as sports/martial arts, or are carrying around your kiddos, the stress placed on your cervical spine could be the cause of your headaches. Malposition of the vertebrae in the neck and upper back can create an increase in inflammation and/or direct pressure on a nerve. A knowledgeable chiropractor will be able to determine the cause of discomfort and if necessary, perform chiropractic adjustments that could bring you relief.
