Many people suffer with headache pain, and tension headaches are a frequent problem in our busy lives. Postural problems and stress are common causes of tension headache pain, and ones that Back Pain Chiropractic and the personnel here in our Texarkana chiropractic office have a lot of experience in treating.
Research Proves Chiropractic Eases Tension Headaches
The scientific literature confirms our findings: A 2016 study from Spain managed 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 doctor 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 adjustments were coupled with the suboccipital inhibition.
When we get run down, 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 area.
