Prescription or Over the Counter Pain Pills

At the first sign of a bad headache the simplest thing for most of us to do is to grab some over-the-counter painkillers, take them and hope for the best. When a headache continues to linger, people looking for headache relief often visit their doctor and pay for unnecessary tests or end up with expensive prescriptions for stronger painkillers, when studies say that a more natural approach may actually be quite a bit more effective.

Drug Free Headache Relief

According to the NewsMax Health article, "Drug-Free Headache Remedies Better than Painkillers by Nick Tate, "A number of natural methods have been clinically proven to ease pain as effectively as over-the-counter medicines and more costly treatments. Among them: Getting enough sleep, eating small frequent meals, applying cold compresses to the head, taking a hot shower, getting a massage, or engaging in some type of relaxation practice."

Chiropractic Headache Relief

Chiropractic care is also a wonderful solution for headache sufferers. Many recurrent headaches are caused by tension that builds up in the neck, back, shoulders and other critical points in the body. When you take the time to correct the alignment of the body you are pro-actively addressing the cause of the pain and discomfort, instead of just taking medication to deal with the symptoms. When you combine chiropractic care with simple lifestyle changes you have the best chances of receiving long-lasting relief from intense and chronic headache pain.
