How Chiropractors Can Help
There are a variety of resources our Atlanta Chiropractors can use to relieve tension headaches. Manual or Chiropractic Adjustments help realign areas of the spine that affect the performance of your nervous system. By carefully adjusting your vertebrae to their natural positions, our Chiropractors can improve your spinal function and help reduce the tension that contributes to your headaches.
Studies show that Chiropractic Adjustments provide immediate relief for those experiencing tension headaches. And, there are no adverse side effects associated with adjustments, unlike other traditional kinds of treatment like prescription medication. Other ways that Chiropractors approach tension headaches include:
- Adjusting personal diet, nutritional counseling
- Relaxation techniques
- Controlled stretches
- Postural corrections
- Implementing ergonomic devices in common areas
Prevent Tension Headaches
Although ongoing adjustments can help eliminate tension headaches that already exist, they still may appear from time to time. You can prevent headaches from recurring by:
- Identifying triggers such as particular foods, environmental factors, or lifestyle decisions
- Avoid sitting or remaining stationary for long periods. If you work in a particular occupation that requires you to sit at a desk, try to get up and walk around for ten minutes, each hour.
- Do not clench your jaw
