Headache Prevention: Posture and Body Mechanics - Topic Overview
Good posture and body mechanics
Good posture and the way you move your body can help prevent tension
in your neck, shoulders, and upper back muscles. If your headaches seem to be
related to tension in this area, be aware of your posture and position during
daily activities. This may help prevent headaches.
Use good body mechanics all the time, not just when you have a
headache or back pain.
Since it is brief, the vision loss of ocular migraines is not usually treated. But you may need relief for the headache that accompanies or follows it.
The primary treatment for ocular migraines is to reduce exposure to triggers. Calcium-channel blockers are the main drug treatment for ocular migraines. They work by relaxing the blood vessels. One example is Cardene, which can be given as a pill or as a tab you put under the tongue.
