4 Ways To Kick Your Headache To The Curb

Timothy Byrd

Headaches tend to be more common than what you think. Since you can get a headache from just about anything, some individuals have to look for help almost every day. Thankfully, there are a variety of treatments to help you put your headache pain behind you once and for all. If you haven't tried one of these treatment methods, there is no time like the present to do so.

Lavender Oil

Beyond smelling amazing, lavender oil is great for getting rid of your headache pain. You can either rub it onto your temples or inhale it. If you plan to inhale it, you only need a couple drops in two cups of boiling water. For those who are planning on applying it to the temple, you don't have to worry about diluting it. You don't want to ingest it.

Peppermint Oil

This is one oil that has a number of different uses. People have used it to ward off mice, ants and other pests. However, those are old wives tales and it hasn't been proven as to whether it actually works or not. It does help to soothe away your tension and ease headache pain. It helps to control the flow of blood in your body. Since headaches often stem from poor blood circulation, this oil will help to open the vessels and promote good blood flow. The oil also works great for opening your sinuses and getting more oxygen into your bloodstream.

Chiropractic Care

While everyone is different, chiropractic adjustments work wonders for relieving tension headaches. By manipulating the upper two vertebrae and adjusting the junction between your thoracic and cervical spine, you will soon feel relief. This works great for relieving tension and migraine headaches. However, you also want to make changes in your lifestyle and diet to continue seeing results between adjustments. Contact a clinic like Rockwood Chiropractic for more information.

Scalp Massage

Beyond a visit to the chiropractor, a scalp massage can help to kick your migraine pain to the curb. By massaging the occipital nerve – located at the base of your skull – you can minimize migraine pain. Massage can go beyond just headache relief, so if you are in pain, this might be a great way to give your body what it needs to recover.

By trying out the methods listed above, you can put an end to your headache pain and go on about your life without all of the pain of a headache.

Focusing On My Back Injuries

A few months ago, I realized that it was getting progressively more difficult to move around like I used to. Lifting was a chore, sleeping was difficult, and bending over was absolutely grueling. My back hurt when I did just about anything, so I decided to seek help. I contacted a chiropractor in my area for help, and it was amazing how helpful the chiropractor was. I was able to get in for an appointment the same day, and my problems melted away as the doctor worked on my back. My blog details my journey, so that you can see how helpful the right care can be.
