Ice Packs

I forgot to mention in my previous posts, I did have a pretty bad headache yesterday.  It had been 3 days without going to the chiropractor and I was wishing I had an appointment (I do today).

The chiropractor had given me an ice pack at my 1st visit.  She told me that when I get a headache to put the ice pack on my neck and at the base of my skull.  So, instead of reaching for the tyelenol, I went for the ice pack.  Sure enough, it worked!

I tend to pull out my heating pad when I am achy.  I wonder if this makes it worse, maybe I should be using ice packs?  They tend to reduce swelling and inflammation.  Something to look up.
