Chiropractic and Headaches

Did you know that 90% of women and 70% of men have experienced at least one tension-type headache in their lifetime and 37% of women and 21% of men suffer from this type of headache on a regular basis?

What is a tension-type headache?
A tension-type headache is characterized by a pressing or feeling of tightness and can last from minutes to weeks. Pain or discomfort can be noted bilaterally and does not vary with physical activity.

-Stress
-Fatigue
-Insomnia
-Changes in hormone levels

How can chiropractic help you with your headache?
A chiropractic adjustment (spinal manipulation) can help induce motion into spinal segments that have become hypomobile due to stresses on your system, nutritional advice and postural exercises as well as myofascial release techniques to reduce muscular tension and adhesions are a few ways we can help you.
