Chiropractor Pittsburgh, PA 15237 Headache Pain Relief– Dr. James Schofield

Hello, I’m Dr. James Schofield. Almost
everyone has experienced a headache at one time or another. Some people get tension or stress headaches. Others get sinus headaches. Still others get migraine headaches and
some experience cluster headaches. Today I’d like to give you ideas on how
to avoid headaches. Or if you are having headaches, how you can obtain relief. But if you need us right away please call the telephone number
listed below. Generally speaking getting a mild
headache a few times a year while annoying, is usually not
serious. However, some people experience a headache a couple times a month, or weekly, or even daily and this is
definitely not normal. Sometimes a headache can be felt in the
back of the head just above the neck or in the temple areas or at the forehead or
around the eyes. Since headaches affect so many people
I’d like to give you some ideas to reduce the effects of headaches, so that you can have a happier, healthier
life. First, headaches can be caused by stress on our
neck. Having poor posture for our head and neck
or allowing our head and neck to be in an awkward position for a long period of time can contribute to headaches. Make sure to
utilize good posture for your head and neck when you’re up and about and, just as equally, when you’re sitting and
sleeping. Second, some headaches are caused by
triggers such as food, dehydration, activities or
circumstances. Look for certain foods and beverages like
cheese, chocolate, coffee and wine to see if they are
associated with the onset of your headache. Make sure you drink plenty water all
through the day as dehydration can cause headaches for
some us. Also, see if your headache comes on at certain times of the day. If your headache is present in the morning
upon awakening maybe your pillow isn’t giving your neck proper support. If your headache comes on during the afternoon to evening perhaps you’re not getting enough sleep. Some headaches can be caused by sleep
deprivation. Third, only a small percentage of headaches are
due to an underlying disease or injury. A great majority of headaches
are caused by irritation of the upper neck muscles and nerves. By
removing irritation to the muscles and nerves many people have found relief even
elimination of their headaches. In our office we have a number
procedures aimed at this type of help. If you’re having a headache you can
apply ice or cold pack applications to the back of
your neck. To learn how to properly do this you can visit my website listed
below and click on the ice v.s. heat tab to
watch a 2 minute instructional video. Again, if you need us immediately please
call the telephone number listed below. We’re conveniently located in the North
Hills of Pittsburgh. Thank you for visiting. It’s an honor to be of service.
