Do you experience headaches regularly and have trouble finding relief? You’re not alone. Headaches can be debilitating, especially when they occur frequently. Different causes, but mixed-tension headaches affect many people. These headaches often feel like a band squeezing around the head and can be caused by stress, poor posture, or muscle tension.
At Ho’ola Chiropractic in Honolulu, HI, we understand how frustrating it can be to deal with chronic headaches. That’s why we offer chiropractic care to help alleviate the symptoms of various headaches, including mixed tension headaches. In this blog post, we’ll explore how a chiropractor can help provide headache relief.
One of the primary causes of mixed tension headaches is muscle tension, which can stem from misalignments in the spine. Through chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor helps realign the spine to reduce stress and pressure on the nerves. This can help relieve headaches’ frequency and intensity in many cases.
Tension headaches originate from tense muscles in the head and neck region. Upper cervical chiropractic care can be used to help release tension in those muscles to help get you relief from your headache symptoms. There are specific chiropractic techniques that can be used to target the head and neck region to help increase blood flow. We can also provide corrective exercises for you to do at home that may be able to help you strengthen the muscles in those area and to help increase circulation. By helping to release tension in muscles around your head and neck, we may be able to help stop any tension headaches you might have in the future.
Blair upper cervical care is another treatment that can be effective in reducing mixed-tension headaches. This therapy involves using a gentle, specific adjustment to align the bones of the upper neck. Doing so can improve cerebrospinal fluid flow, blood flow and nerve function, reducing tension and pain. There is no popping, cracking or twisting of the neck with the specialized techniques we use at Ho’ola Chiropractic.
