Headaches treatment Barcelona
Living free of headaches naturally
A headache can make the simplest activities feel impossible. We will help you find a real and natural solution to your headaches, without using pharmaceutical drugs.
What can cause headaches?
Texting in bad posture, stress, dehydration, trauma, poor computer ergonomics and lack of sleep are just a few of the many causes for headaches. They invariably create spinal tensions and misalignments that put pressure on the brain stem, which may lead to headaches.
Traditional headache medications do nothing to correct this pressure; they only mask the symptoms of your problem.
Can you prevent headaches?
Not all headaches are preventable. Some suggestions Dr. Muriel Poli offers to reduce headache severity and frequency are:
- Move often, especially if your job requires prolonged sitting.
- Take a three-minute break to move your body at least once every 60 minutes
- Stretch your neck through its full range of motion
- Begin a daily low-impact exercise routine
- Avoid teeth clenching; this can aggravate tension headaches
- Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration
How do we help with headaches?
Dr Poli begins by checking the atlas, the first cervical vertebra under the skull, where 75 trillion nerve fibers from your spinal cord thread into the brain.
If Dr Poli finds a misalignment in this area, she will painlessly adjust the vertebrae to reduce the brain stem compression; and release tension in the meningeal system that envelops the brain and the spinal cord.
