Natural Solution for Headaches in Redwood City California

Chronic Pain, Migraine, HeadachesThe most commonly experienced headache is a tension headache. This is a mild to moderately painful headache that often feels as though a band has been placed around the head and is applying pressure. To deal with such a headache, most people either take a painkiller or lie down in a dark and quiet room until it passes. There are, however, some home remedies that people try. These include:

  • Stress management – They don’t call it a tension headache for nothing. Keeping stress down may result in fewer headaches.
  • Heat – Whether it’s a shower, bath, or a heating pad, applying heat to the back of the neck may offer relief to some.
  • Ice – Sometimes the tension may be due to swelling and ice is the fastest way to reduce swelling. Many try applying the cold to their forehead or neck.
  • Posture – Proper posture can limit strained muscles that lead to headaches. This is something especially to watch out for if you have an office job that requires looking at a screen all day.

Actually, all of these home remedies are related in a way. They all have to do with the neck. Stress can create tight neck muscles. Heat on the neck can promote blood flow. Icing the neck can reduce inflammation. Posture is vital for keeping the head positioned properly on top of the neck. So really, all of these home remedies lead us back to properly caring for the neck area.

Dr. Pete Tsiglieris of Redwood City, California specializes in taking care of the upper neck. As an upper cervical chiropractor, Dr. Tsiglieris specializes in the C1 and C2 vertebrae. When these bones get out of alignment, the result can be muscle tension, reduced flow of blood, inflammation, or posture problems. In other words, if your headaches are helped by any of the above home remedies, they may be caused by a misalignment.

An examination can reveal if a misalignment is responsible for your headaches. If so, you may be on the way to finding relief right from your first adjustment.
