Types of Headaches

For example, tension and muscular headaches are the two most common types. tension headache pain, while less severe than migraines, causes a rigid feeling accompanied by agonizing pain. Typically, tension headaches leave your neck feeling sore and tender. Tension headaches often start in the afternoon, aggravated by physical tension or emotional stress. Many people get them as a result of an arduous workday or following intense emotional strain.

Chiropractic care can help you avoid debilitating headaches. Dr. Tom Molstad goes to the source of your headache pain to stop it before it starts. Tension headaches may be linked to spinal conditions known as subluxations. Chiropractic adjustments restore mobility and realign the spine. This eliminates subluxations, thereby removing a common source of tension headache pain.

Chiropractic headache care might include the following:

  • Chiropractic adjustments, such as spinal manipulation to improve alignment, release stress, and alleviate pain
  • Lifestyle changes such as nutrition and exercise improvements
  • Advice on proper posture to keep your spine in alignment
  • Ergonomic awareness to prevent tension headaches at work
  • Relaxation therapy to relieve stress and tension, common sources of headaches
