Headaches Treatment Recommendations

Nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing and some cause debilitating pain and nausea. What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down? Pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? If you frequently experience headaches, ACA suggests the following:

 

  • If you spend a large amount of time in one fixed position, such as in front of a computer, take a break and stretch every 30 minutes to one hour.
  • Avoid heavy exercise. Instead, try walking or low-impact aerobics.
  • Avoid teeth clenching. The upper teeth should never touch the lowers, expect when swallowing.
  • Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day to help avoid dehydration, which can lead to headaches.
