Chiropractic Effective for Tension Headaches

Depew Headache Treatment by Dr. PalmerMany people experience headache pain, and tension headaches are a frequent problem in our busy lives. Postural problems and stress are common sources of tension headache pain, and ones that Dr. Palmer and the personnel here in our Depew chiropractic office have a lot of experience in treating.

Research Proves Chiropractic Eases Tension Headaches

The scientific literature shows 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 authors found 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, causing pain. Chiropractic works by getting rid of these stresses and restoring the normal nerve function to the tissues.
