HeadachesThere are various types of headaches with varying degrees of pain we experience from time to time or even on a continuing basis. There are headaches that present themselves as sharp piercing pain, dull and achy pain, or throbbing intense pain. These headaches can last as long as a few minutes to a few hours, and in some cases, all day long.

Some headaches are debilitating enough to keep you home from work, school or other activities. If this is the case for you, Simmons Specific Chiropractic can find the cause for these severe or annoying pains. Did you know that some foods and certain smells could trigger headaches? In fact, there are a number of things that could be a trigger for you, including an underlying misalignment you might not be aware of.

If your headaches are persistent or chronic, it is recommended you keep a log of what you eat, drink, the activities you do, when the headaches occur, how long they last and if you take any pain relievers. This information will help narrow the potential causes of why they continue to happen. A simple realignment of your spine might be all it takes to get you headache free. So, call now and make your appointment.

Tips to help reduce the onset of headaches:

  • Get a good nights rest
  • Eat healthy and on a regular schedule
  • Stress relievers – exercising, yoga, and meditation can help
  • Drink plenty of water – you could be suffering from dehydration
  • Exclude foods with toxic chemicals – aspartame, phenylalanine, sucralose, and monosodium glutamate (MSG)
