How to Handle Headaches Like a Pro

By Genevieve Cunningham

Headaches are an irritating ailment to deal with. Though most headaches aren’t particularly debilitating, they are painful enough to get in the way of carrying on with everyday life. Work becomes a bother, driving makes it worse, and any sort of noise becomes just a bit unbearable. But perhaps the most frustrating part about headaches is our lack of understanding. What causes them? How do we avoid them? To manage headaches in your life and get a little healthy boost, take a look at these tips.

Find the Trigger

All headaches have a starting point, and if you can find what it is, you may be able to eliminate it and the headache. Some common triggers include bright lights, strong smells, excessive stress, eye problems, and restriction in the spine. If the initial problem can be determined, it may be possible to avoid the trigger or to treat the trigger specifically, which means fewer headaches over time.

Some Short-Term Relief Options

It’s a good idea to have short-term relief options on hand for whenever headaches strike out of nowhere. For the most part, this is probably in the form of a simple over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen. These can stifle the pain for immediate relief. Other common quick releases include peppermint oil applied in certain areas, sunglasses for shielding light, and pillows for relaxing the neck.

Get Care for the Long Haul

While short-term relief is a good thing to be prepared with, a better option for long-term health is to find a long-term solution for headaches. This is where chiropractors come into play. When headaches are caused by restriction in the spine, which happens more often than we realize, chiropractors can use spinal manipulation to eliminate the restrictions, which then eliminates the pain associated with the headaches. Why does this work long-term? Because chiropractic care is meant to be ongoing. Regular care can ensure that the the spine stays continuously healthy, which means headaches may never start up again in the first place.
