Headache causes and solutions

On average most headaches are caused by muscle tension in the neck. This can happen for a number of reasons, for example, remaining sedentary for long periods of time, stress or fatigue. 

Top 3 Headache Solutions 

  1. Drink more water: At the first sign of a headache, slowly drink a couple of large glasses of water or eat fruit/veggies with high water content since some headaches are caused by dehydration.

  2. Eat something: Going too long without food affects your blood sugar levels, which can lead to a headache. Choose healthy protein- or wholegrain-based snacks…no sugar! 

  3. Visit a chiropractor: Chiropractor care uses gentle spinal adjustments to correct impairments that may be causing your headaches. Alleviating any tension in the system can bring relief to those who suffer. Also, your Chiropractor can recommend tips for better posture, diet, and sleep so you always feel your best.
