Stress Headache Treatment

Most stress or tension headaches respond almost immediately to spinal adjustments, especially for those originating in the neck. Research has shown that this technique provides longer lasting relief compared to the medications commonly prescribed for the same condition. At Glacier Chiropractic, we can also provide therapeutic and rehabilitation exercise suggestions to help restore and stabilize your musculoskeletal system so you can extend the benefits of your visit. Because migraines are impacted by changes in the nervous system, chiropractic care has been proven to treat migraines effectively by subtly restoring balance to the nervous system.

Causes Of Stress And Migraine Headaches

Stress is an epidemic in our country, and it’s no surprise that 75% of headaches are reported to be stress/tension headaches. Areas of abnormal tension, or subluxations, are caused by injury or prolonged stress. The stress can overload the small muscle in our necks that connects to a pain-sensitive tissue that covers the brain. When this muscle goes into spasms, it pulls on this tissue and causes what we know as stress headaches. In addition to this, 25 million Americans are migraine sufferers. Migraine headaches occur when blood vessels in the brain constrict then dilate. When the vessels constrict, blood flow decreases and vision is affected. This constriction is followed by a dilation of blood vessels, which quickly increases blood pressure in the brain and causes the familiar pounding of a migraine.
