Headaches is one of the most common pain conditions. While there are many different types of headaches, most people suffer from the common tension headache. Fortunately, tension headaches are very effectively treated with chiropractic.
Characterized by a band like pain that most commonly starts at the back of the skull extending around the head to the brow line. These headaches can be on both sides or just on one side. It's important to have headaches evaluated by a medical professional such as a chiropractor.
Treatment is focused on getting to the root of the problem which commonly lies in spastic and rigid muscles at the base of the skull called the sub-occipital muscles. When these muscles are stressed from poor posture while sitting, standing or sleeping, it can cause pain to travel around the skull making it difficult to enjoy everyday life and even the ability to concentrate. At Chiro Cleveland, we have found that the use of massage, stretching and chiropractic adjustment can bring the much needed relief in a short amount of time.
