With fall upon us the weather will soon be turning cooler, leaves will fall and many will suffer at the hands of seasonal headaches. There are many reasons why you may find yourself with a headache-air pressure changes, molding leaves triggering allergies or perhaps going from cool weather in the morning to hot weather by afternoon is reason enough to have a headache. No matter what the cause for your headaches, there are a some simple techniques you can try at home for some relief: Visit With Your Chiropractor. Chiropractors specialize in neck and back pain but also headache pain. Quite often headaches are the result of a problem in closely related body part such as the neck, shoulders or jaw. Chiropractic adjustments couple with therapy and massage often bring relief quickly for headache sufferers regardless of the time of year. Keep The Windows Closed. As much as you may like the cool, fresh air from outdoors, the allergens floating around in the air may be keeping you miserable both day and night. If you can't live without those windows open then at least try to keep your bedroom window closed so you can reduce your exposure to allergens at night. This may give you a better nights rest as well as a more comfortable start to your day. When coming in from a lengthy amount of time outdoors, you may find it beneficial to change your clothes after you've had a shower. Washing those allergens out of your hair and clothes often reduces allergy symptoms soon after. Track Your Headaches. You may think getting these headaches is all in the realm of normal but there are significant triggers that you may be missing. Keeping a journal of sleep habits, environmental encounters and foods you eat (and drink) could help you determine if that glass of red wine at night is the reason for your pain or if more investigation needs to be done. Working closely with your chiropractic specialist can help you get some answers and some relief with natural treatment that won't have any risky side effects.
