Occasional headaches are extremely common. They can be caused by many different things including fatigue, too much time in front of a screen, a virus, congestion, not eating or drinking enough, stress and even poor posture. If you suffer from frequent headaches you know that they can impact your daily life and can be difficult to get rid of. Many of us rely on over the counter medications to reduce the pain and discomfort, but over time you may need more to achieve the relief and they can have side effects. Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab offers natural, non-invasive treatment options for lasting headache relief.
Very often, people who struggle with headaches search for relief in many different places. Over-the counter medicines and dietary changes are two things that are commonly tried for relief. If you struggle with headaches and/or migraines, you may not be aware that there are a wide range of non-invasive treatments that are highly effective in providing long lasting relief including:
Non-Invasive Headache Treatment Options
Acupuncture: Acupuncture can be extremely helpful for some who suffer with persistent headaches. This treatment relieves tension and can encourage your body to heal itself. Acupuncture is not painful and over time can even prevent headaches from occurring.
Massage Therapy: Many headaches are caused by tension in your body. Massage therapy can provide relief in your muscular, circulatory, nervous, lymphatic, and immune systems. A massage therapist can determine the primary cause of your headaches and develop a treatment plan that is designed to work specifically for you.
Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments realign the vertebrae in your back and neck, which can lessen tension all over your body, decreasing frequency and severity of headaches.
Diet and Exercise Changes: Our staff can also help you develop a plan for diet and exercise changes that can reduce headache frequency. You should drink plenty of water and eat foods rich in vitamins and plenty of protein to give you energy and fuel. This can really lessen the frequency of headaches as well.
