HEADACHE - TENSION TYPE
Causes of Headache - Tension Type
The two most common types of headaches are tension headaches and migraine headaches. People suffering from a "tension" type headache, often describe that their headache feels like a "tight band" around the head. This is a common presentation of tension type headache and the main cause of it is either muscular or joint related. The headache is a sign that there is issue in the cervical spine and/or surrounding tissue.
With chiropractic care, our goal is to identify the stressors causing your tension headache, and treat it using chiropractic manipulative therapy, rehabilitative exercises and make the necessary lifestyle changes to help you become your best. Chiropractors are great at getting rid of headaches safely and effectively without using medication.
