Tension Headaches

Tension headaches are some of the most common causes of head pain. These headaches can be episodic or chronic. The pain occurs behind the eyes and at the base of your skull. Others equate tension headaches similar to having a tight band around the forehead. If you are suffering from tension headaches, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment at Back to Health Chiropractic. Our chiropractic team offers the testing and treatment options patients need to naturally reduce the severity and frequency of their headaches.

What Causes Tension Headaches?

Stress and tension in the neck have been identified as common triggers for tension headaches. Sometimes, genetics and the environment can also cause tension headaches. Other causes include:

  • Certain foods
  • Cold or flu
  • Eyestrain
  • Smoking
  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Lack of sleep

Symptoms of Tension Headaches

If you have dull head pain on both sides of your head, tension headaches could be the culprit. Other symptoms include:

  • Slow onset of head pain
  • Pain as if you have a tight band on your head
  • Pain that involves your neck or base of your skull
  • Tenderness on the forehead

The symptoms of tension headaches mimic other medical conditions, especially migraines. So, it’s essential to visit our chiropractic clinic for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

How Our Chiropractors Treat Headaches

Chiropractors treat headaches by addressing the root cause of the pain, the nervous system. Our chiropractors can lift pressure off the nervous system by manipulating your spine, resulting in better coordination of body functions, including pain management. Neck manipulation alleviates tension in the neck, reducing head pain. Also, lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling go a long way in managing the symptoms of tension headaches.
