Preventing Tension Headache with Chiropractic

Research Reveals Chiropractic Can Reduce Tension Headache in Harleysville

Many people experience headache pain, and tension headaches are a frequent problem in our busy lives. Postural problems and stress are common causes of tension headaches and ones that Dr. Szilagyi and the team here in our Harleysville chiropractic office have a lot of experience in treating.

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Helps Tension Headaches

The scientific literature shows our findings: A 2016 study from Spain treated a group of 76 patients 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 treatment; 19 with both adjustments and suboccipital inhibition; and 19 received no treatment.

The authors discovered that the spinal adjustments were helpful at relieving pain, and that the best results were found when 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 strains and restoring the normal nerve function to the tissues.
