Having headaches on a regular basis can certainly be annoying. They may be so intense that you are not able to carry out your daily routine until they subside. Some feel headaches are something that they just must learn to live with. However, headaches are not supposed to occur. The medical community does not really understand them and why they happen. Let’s take a look at a few things that may be causing your headaches and a way to help them.
Home Remedies for Headaches
- Getting enough rest. This sounds like a simple solution, right? Well, the majority of people do not get enough sleep because we are so busy trying to do everything in a 24-hour period. It is important to schedule some time to relax – take a walk, read a book, or do something quiet you enjoy.
- Be careful of what you are eating. A variety of foods and drinks have the reputation for triggering headaches. These include, but are not limited to:
- Caffeine (too much or too little)

Just employing these two methods can help you to mitigate some headaches. However, in many cases, you must take it a step further. What does this mean? It may be time for you to make an appointment to see an upper cervical chiropractor.
How Upper Cervical Chiropractors Help with Headaches
Here at 1st Place Chiropractic, we offer our patients an alternative way to care for headaches. It has been noted that headaches may be the direct result of an atlas misalignment. The atlas bone is the top bone of the neck and is susceptible to moving out of place due to a blow to the head or neck or even everyday wear and tear.
We correct this problem by using a method that is both gentle and precise to encourage the bones to realign themselves naturally. This leads to a restoration of communication and blood flow that may have been hindered. Many patients see their headaches improve or go away entirely.
