Headaches tips from your Chiropractor inEverett

Headaches affect millions of people in theUnited   States.  It is one of the most common reasons people miss work each day.  Here are a few simple things you can do to get rid of or avoid a headache.

  1. Drink water.  May sound simple but drinking a full      glass of water can be as good as taking a couple Advil’s for that headache.

  2. Slow      down on the coffee.  Excess coffee      can create a headache.  And if you      drink coffee, do it consistently.       If you drink it five days in a row and then skip one day you will      probably get a headache.

  3. Avoid      sitting at the computer for over 20 minutes at a time.  This will affect both the neck and the      eyes, each of which can give you a headache.  Every 20 minutes get up and move for a      minute and get a drink of water.

  4. Consistent      sleep. This is a big one, if you are use to sleeping 8 hours and then      start to fluctuate between 6 and 9 hours your sleep patterns will be      disrupted and you will be more likely to get a headache.  Try to go to bed and wake up around the      same time each day.

  5. Home      stretching.  This is huge also, we      all sit at the computer too much and the neck muscles will tighten      up.  Chiropractors are a great      resource for education in stretching.       Two or three stretches for the neck can prevent or get rid of a      headache.
