A Safer Approach
Medical management of headaches usually involves medications which are never risk-free. Side effects and even dependencies are common. Chiropractic care offers a safe, natural alternative to relieving and preventing headaches.
What you can do
Follow your doctor's recommendations for diet and fitness. Use the relaxation techniques suggested by your chiropractor. Keep a diary of your activities, what foods you eat, and chemicals and smells you are exposed to over a period of weeks. The diary can help identify headache triggers. And be patient: If you're seeking help for a long-standing problem, it may take a while to resolve it.
