Advil, Medipren (Ibuprofen)

Although drugs have represented the mainstay of traditional headache treatments, it is important to try to find safer and equally effective means of relieving or preventing headaches without
resorting to the use of drugs. Because emotional factors play an important role in the genesis of many headaches, any method of headache treatment that relieves stress, anxiety, or depression can be helpful in preventing some headaches. Literally defined, psychotherapy means treating the mind, but in the broad sense, it can include any method of lessening tension, anxiety, and depression. Psychotherapy, in this sense, ranges from an informal discussion with a friend or marriage partner to a formal professional interaction between a psychologist or psychiatrist and a patient.
Simple therapies may help to relieve headache pain or prevent headache completely. Heat applied to the back of the neck, cold packs around the head, or massage of sore neck and temple muscles may be beneficial for some headaches. Those suffering from muscle contraction headaches, particularly, benefit from an improvement in posture, wearing a supportive neck collar, using a simple device offering gentle neck traction, or improvement of dental or jaw
problems if they exist.
Currently, there is increasing interest in the potential value of relaxation techniques. The methods of relaxing vary from simple and informal relaxation exercises to control overtense muscles to more structured and formally taught mind-control techniques. Regular exercise, reading, hobbies, or sipping a soothing beverage are all familiar methods of relaxing and can be important in achieving a feeling of calm. Alcoholic beverages and other intoxicants are used for relaxation by many people, but the potential for abuse prevents us from advocating this form of therapy for headache problems. Alcohol may actually relieve a muscle contraction headache, but it can trigger a cluster headache or a migraine headache.
