Headache & Migraine Relief
You know how frustrating the pain can be if you suffer headaches and migraines. They can disrupt your life and cause problems throughout every aspect of it. At Enhanced Living Chiropractic in Greer, Inman, and Travelers Rest, SC, our chiropractor can help you manage your headaches and migraines. Here are some ways to find relief.
As soon as you feel a headache, try to find a way to get some rest. Sleep can help lessen the impact of the migraine before it hits you. Even if it doesn’t solve your pain, it can reduce it immensely. For example, try to find a dark space where you can lie down and sleep for a while. Your body needs rest to recover, so getting some as soon as your headache begins can help start the recovery process as quickly as possible.
Massage can ease tension and promote healthy blood flow, which helps manage headache and migraine pain. If you’re working with our chiropractor or licensed massage therapist, they can help you target the best muscles to relieve your pain. In addition, massage promotes physical and mental relaxation, which can help reduce muscle tension. Since tension is a common cause of headaches, this will provide fast relief for your pain. A regular massage is also an excellent tool for stress management, which will help reduce headaches in the future.
Applying ice packs to your head and neck can numb the pain of a headache or migraine. If inflammation is causing some of your pain, the ice will bring down the inflammation while simultaneously numbing the pain. Combine these ice packs with the rest. You'll get the most benefits if lying down on your head and neck.
If you’re prone to headaches, some simple changes to your lifestyle might help you find ongoing relief from your pain. First, talk to our chiropractor about what changes you might make. They can provide information about stress management, healthy sleep habits, exercise, and nutrition. All these things promote a foundation of wellness in your life, which can help you fight off the things causing your headaches.
