If you suffer from recurring headaches, help is in sight. The Mayo Clinic advises that chiropractic spinal manipulation can provide effective treatment for tension headaches – headaches that emanate from the spine – the most common type of headache. The exact cause of tension headaches is little understood, but stress is known to be a common trigger. Although no two headaches are exactly alike, anyone who experiences headaches deserves relief. Chiropractic care is here to help.
Tension headaches are often accompanied by highly specific symptoms:
- A squeezing sensation at your temples or forehead;
- A feeling of tightness around your entire head;
- The sensation of pain above one eye; and/or
- Tenderness at the scalp, neck, and shoulders.
Tension headaches usually stem from the neck and spine, and can be exacerbated by the forward head-thrust that many hours of working on a computer demands. Obtaining proper alignment and posture, which a chiropractor can help you achieve, goes a long way toward eliminating tension headaches.
Battling Your Headaches
Tension headaches are so common, that people often come to the conclusion that they simply have to live with them. Many people mask the symptoms with over-the-counter medications and try to soldier on. But tension headaches can interfere with your ability to fully participate in life. There’s no reason to let tension headaches stop you from doing the things that you love, as an experienced chiropractor can help you conquer your tension headaches naturally.
