How to Decrease Tension Headaches

Quick question: do you know ANYONE who ISN’T interested in REDUCING the stress in their life?

Yeah, that’s a silly question! Just about EVERYONE I KNOW would benefit from reducing the stress in their daily lives. Between family, work, and the latest political thread on social media, the stress can easily be overwhelming! Chronic EVERYDAY stress can also have a significant NEGATIVE impact our brains and bodies, causing everything from fatigue and depression to debilitating headaches – these symptoms are often our bodies’ way of telling us that it’s OVERWHELMED! IT’S OVER-STRESSED—IT CAN’T KEEP GOING LIKE THIS!!


When this happens, you’ve basically got 3 choices: One choice is to ignore what your body’s telling you, at your own risk. (In fact, this is what most medications will HELP you do, but the science is clear, the problem usually doesn’t go away, it just resurfaces in another form.)

The second choice is to REDUCE your stress level. This would be great, wouldn’t it? But this is much easier said than done, but it’s certainly possible.

The third choice, and this is where Chiropractic can really help, is to INCREASE the amount of STRESS your body can handle! Think about it, if you can increase the amount of stress your brain and body can handle, how could that IMPACT YOUR LIFE? Your FAMILY? YOUR RELATIONSHIPS? YOUR PRODUCTIVITY or even YOUR CREATIVITY?!


THIS IS WHY WE LOVE CHIROPRACTIC!! Unlike drugs that just cover up symptoms and suppress “feelings,” Chiropractic safely and effectively helps you express better function and feeling!! And with all this overwhelming stress in just about everyone’s lives, who COULDN’T benefit from functioning better and being able to better handle their daily stress!!


But let’s bring it back to HEADACHES:

Headaches are commonly caused by stress and are often classified as tension-type headaches. Pain at the base of the skull that starts in the neck and wraps around to the front of the head is very common with tension headaches. Research has shown that Chiropractic adjustments effectively treat and correct the CAUSE of these headaches, providing both relief from symptoms and lasting results, again without DRUGS or SURGERY!!


In fact, in addition to reducing tension and strengthening the muscles that support your neck, adjustments can also improve your range of motion and reduce your overall feeling of stress. This unique combination of benefits is why millions of people rely on safe and effective Chiropractic care to help them find relief.
So, to review:

  • Chronic stress can contribute to tension headaches.
  • Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to IMPROVE FUNCTION and YOUR BODY’S ABILITY TO HANDLE the stress on your musculoskeletal system and spine.
  • Adjustments have been shown to reduce the frequency, severity, and intensity of tension headaches, by addressing the CAUSE of the PROBLEM!


 Now that you know this, it’s time to take action!

I’ve got some good news for you: You don’t necessarily need to make DRASTIC changes to your life to CHANGE your daily stress level, but you do need to be CONSISTENT. Picking up a new hobby, taking a few minutes to read or write before bed, or enjoying a relaxing activity like yoga can all help. If you would like to discover even more ways to help reduce your daily stress, we invite you to attend our complimentary workshop that’s coming up at the end of the month. We’ll be covering everything you need to know to better MANAGE stress and end your headaches now!
