Chiropractic Treatment of Tension Headache

Tension Headache Relief with Chiropractic in Clarksdale, Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch

Many people suffer from headache pain, and tension headaches are a common problem in our busy lives. Postural problems and stress are common sources of tension headache and ones that Dr. Kasprack and the team here in our Clarksdale, Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch chiropractic office have a lot of experience in treating.

Research Shows Chiropractic Therapy Eases Tension Headaches

The scientific literature shows our findings: A 2016 study from Spain treated a group of 76 patients 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 beneficial at relieving pain, and that the best results were found when spinal adjustments were coupled with the suboccipital inhibition.

When we get stressed, the nerves and tissues in the neck can be disrupted, leading to pain. Chiropractic works by eliminating these strains and restoring the normal nerve function to the tissues.
