Don’t Let Headaches distract you

The throbbing…pounding…sensation of a splitting headache is an all too accepted condition for millions of people each da. Some suffer with headaches several times a month, others ever more often. A headache can be a distraction that affects your job and your family life. Headaches are not a normal condition. Many people resort to medication to temporarily dull the pain. Unfortunately, relief is often fleeting, and the cycle returns again and again. It seems no matter how many pills are taken, if the cause of the problem is not identified and treated, the headaches will continue. Although many things can cause a headache; including sinus problems and alcohol use, the most common cause is muscle tension. The brain itself does not register the ache of a headache, but there are nerves, veins and arteries that are wrapped around the head. If these cranial nerves are compressed, pulled, or irritated, a headache can be the result. Help is often possible!
