Tips to help your Headache & Migraine

  • Lying flat on your back with no pillow and either a hot or cold pack in the hollow of the neck
  • Go for a walk in the fresh air - walk tall with good posture
  • If you are sitting at your computer, correct your posture by lifting your chest up and pulling your head in so it is sitting on top of your body (pretending that the screen smells really bad!)
  • When travelling, take off your jumper and putting it into the arch in the lower back so it is easier to maintain a correct sitting position
  • Lie on your side on the couch instead of sitting in comfortable seats with slouched posture. Keep your head in a neutral position by placing a cushion under your head when lying on your side.
  • Don't lie in bed on your back with pillows under your head
