What is A Tension Headache? 

A tension headache is a common type of headache that affects many Americans. The exact causes can range from stress, poor posture, hormonal changes, lack of sleep, too much sleep, poor work ergonomics, dehydration, and an array of other things. Some people get tension headaches reliably after certain triggering events that cause stress. 

This headache feels like a band around the entire head that is increasingly getting tighter. People report a dull aching head pain, tightness and pressure, and tenderness that may radiate down the neck and shoulders. Patients do not report the pain as severe as that of a migraine, however, the pain can be distracting to daily functions at a time, and it is certainly more than anyone should have to live with on a daily basis. Many people who have migraines also have tension headaches. A tension headache can last anywhere between a few moments to several hours. 

How Can Chiropractic Care Help With Tension Headaches? 

A chiropractor can help reduce or even eliminate your tension headaches with a variety of methods. First, we will discuss possible triggers and help eliminate certain causes. Chiropractic massage and adjustments can reduce the physical causes and symptoms. Other viable options for reducing and treating headaches include biofeedback training to help you reduce your muscle tension in response to stress, and other relaxation techniques as well as addressing any posture issues that may be causing pain at the end of a workday or daily activities.
