Relief from Tension Headaches with Chiropractic
Many people suffer from headache pain, and tension headaches are a common problem in our busy world. Postural problems and stress are common sources of tension headaches, and ones that Dr. Dorn and the staff here in our Killeen, TX chiropractic office have a lot of experience in treating.
Research Shows Chiropractic Eases Tension Headaches
The scientific literature verifies our results: A 2016 study from Spain treated a group of 76 men and women with chronic tension headaches. The participants were divided into four treatment groups: 19 patients were treated with suboccipital inhibition (the therapist presses on the tight tissues at the top of the spine); 19 with chiropractic adjustments; 19 with both adjustments and suboccipital inhibition; and 19 received no treatment.
The researchers reported that the spinal adjustments were effective at relieving pain, and that the best results were found when spinal adjustments were coupled with the suboccipital inhibition.
When we get stressed out, the nerves and tissues in the neck can be disrupted, resulting in pain. Chiropractic works by eliminating these strains and restoring the normal nerve function to the area.
