It’s estimated that 90% of people in the United States experience frequent headaches, often due to tension and stress. If you’re looking for an alternative to medications to finally resolve your tension headache pain, it’s time to consider the many benefits of chiropractic care. The team of experienced chiropractors at Advanced Medical of Twin Cities in MN offers customized chiropractic care to relieve tension in your neck and shoulders that contribute to tension headaches.
What’s Triggering Your Tension Headaches
There are several things in your environment that can cause a headache. Tension in your neck and shoulders is one of the most common headache triggers. Tension comes from overly tight muscles from strenuous physical activity or from a lack of exercise. You may also be more susceptible to a tension headache if you spend a lot of time hunched over your phone, computer, or desk. These activities not only cause tension in your muscles, but they can also irritate the joints in your spine and result in chronic inflammation.
Chiropractic Care Is Effective At Headache Relief
Chiropractic manipulations like spinal decompression are ideal for treating headaches because they address the root cause of your pain. By improving your spinal alignment, your blood can circulate more freely to reduce inflammation and irritation that leads to headaches. Chiropractic adjustments also improve the flexibility and range of motion in your neck and shoulders, so you can engage in exercise and physical activities without pain.
Other Options For Preventing Frequent Tension Headaches
In conjunction with routine chiropractic adjustments, the team at Advanced Medical offers other treatment options for resolving tension headaches:
● Medications – when over-the-counter medications aren’t enough to relieve existing tension headache pain, you may benefit from prescription medicines that reduce inflammation and help relax overly tight muscles.
● Massage therapy – a therapeutic massage is beneficial for relaxing your muscles, enhancing your blood circulation, and reducing overall tension in your body.
● Acupuncture – can help protect against headaches by relieving tension and stimulating certain areas of your body. Acupuncture can relieve headache-causing tension buildups and ensure that your body’s systems are functioning properly.
