Tips For Preventing
Stress Headaches

Hello everyone.

Dr Brad here again.

The holidays are just a few weeks away and holidays can be stressful at the best of times.

And the way things are now with restrictions and pandemic fear, these holidays may be a little more stressful than we are typically used to.

One of the most common things to accompany stress is headaches.

And this is the last thing any of us need right now are headaches; either we start getting them or we get more than we typically do.

Here are a few tips for you to prevent this from happening.

Be cautious with you food choices. This is the time of year where we can consume more sugar and alcohol than we normally do. Both of these can cause fluctuations in your blood sugar which can cause headaches and end up around your waistline (which is a different type of headache).

Make an agreement with yourself to exercise regularly. Remember exercise releases endorphins into your body (your feel-good hormones) and a brisk 30 min walk once or twice a day in the cool fresh air will help to clear your head.

Remember to stretch your neck and shoulders a few times a day especially if you’re on the computer a lot.

And chiropractic care. Chiropractic care has proven to be very effective in helping people who struggle with all types of headaches.

Spinal alignments gently sooth the irritated spinal joints and spinal nerve roots in the neck and upper back that are the source of those stress headaches.

If there are other (drug-free) ways that work for you, please share. Leave a comment on our facebook page.

The more that we can help each other out in these trying times, the better off we will all be.
