How To Treat Your Tension Headache Pain

You are sensitive to noise, the bright lights bother you and you can’t seem to concentrate anymore. Your frequent headaches are beginning to affect your daily routine and no matter what you do, you can’t seem to find any relief. The most common type of this ailment is called tension headaches, and they affect most people at some point in their lives. Symptoms include a dull aching pain, pressure along the forehead sides and back of the head and tenderness in the upper shoulders and neck region. We most often reach for headache medicine to provide us temporarily relief and this usually does the trick if this is a mild headache. But when you are dealing with more severe and chronic pain this solution provides little relief. What options are available in the Lincoln Park, Illinois region to help you find relief from your tension headaches?

Great Success at treating tension headaches

When dealing specifically with tension headaches that originate in the neck region, there are treatment options that have proven to be highly effective. The leading causes of tension headaches are stress and poor posture because they tend to put undue pressure and tension on the spine and the upper neck and back region. Making sure that your work environment is ergonomically designed with a comfortable and adjustable chair is the first step to easing your pain. When correcting the cause of the condition a more involved treatment plan is necessary. The most successful procedure for correcting this condition comes from a chiropractic adjustment to the affected area.  At Botti Chiropractic & Wellness Center we are experts at determining the root cause of your tension headaches and devising a treatment program that is custom designed for your specific needs.
