Tuesday, February 22, 2022 Tension Headaches

People with FHP (Forward Head Posture) can suffer from tension headaches as a result, and one of the best things you can do is get a chiropractic spinal check-up!

The chiropractic’s safe, gentle, drugless methods have helped millions of headache sufferers over the years. Even though chiropractic does not claim to be a headache treatment or cure, it does help align the spine to reduce subluxations assisting in:

  • Improving spinal alignment
  • Reducing nerve irritation
  • Reducing muscle tension
  • Improving blood flow and circulation

Tension headaches result from muscular tension in the head, neck and shoulders. This tension ultimately leads to changes in normal posture and movement. This results in even more muscular tension, thus creating a vicious cycle that causes an increasingly painful headache.

We as chiropractors may use x-ray to determine whether abnormal positioning of the upper to mid-back, shoulder regions and/or neck are a potential cause of the headaches. We may also recommend a suitable lifestyle plan including relaxation techniques, daily stretches, changes in posture and other exercises.

Chiropractic aims to resolve and break the vicious cycle by readjusting the bones of the spine which can in turn release muscular tension, and by realigning skeletal structures.
