Tensions headaches and chiropractic in Sacramento


Tension headaches in Sacramento

Tensions headaches can be merciless. They are the most common type of headache, a category of pain that is among the most common reason for doctor visits in the United States.


Symptoms include: 

  • Dull, aching pain
  • Sensation of tightness, like a band, across your forehead
  • Tightness and pain in the side or back of your head of varying degrees

Tension headaches are generally episodic or chronic, the difference being if your tension headaches occur 15 or more days out of each month. While it is not known exactly what causes tension headaches, it is recommended that you contact a health professional if the presence of your tension headaches is disruptive to your daily life. 

Getting ahead of the tension headaches in Sacramento

If you have been suffering from regular tension headaches, leaving the pain behind may mean a partial upheaval of your lifestyle to account for your condition. Reducing stress is the most signal contributor to reducing tension headache symptoms, but factors such as poor diet, poor posture and lack of exercise play a part as well. The important thing to note is that, in all but the rarest cases, significant improvements can be made in symptoms without the necessity for painkillers as long as you adhere to a healthier lifestyle. 

Improving your life despite tension headaches in Sacramento

Chiropractic is an important and natural method for combating headaches. Spinal misalignment can create a system whereby the muscles of the neck and upper back, as well as the vertebrae, don't support your head properly. Nerve impingement can refer pain to the head and misalignment can also account for decreased blood supply to the head. Chiropractic adjustment is tailor made for this type of dysfunction- we correct spinal misalignment and subluxation, regulate the nervous system and improve circulation of the blood to help you overcome troublesome headaches. If you are interested in chiropractic for your tension headaches, give our office in Sacramento a call to schedule an appointment today.
