Do you notice worse headaches whenever you experience muscle spasms? Have you tried soothing your pain with gentle massages on the neck and temples yet saw minimal improvements? Is it getting more and more frustrating to deal with your headaches and accompanying symptoms?
Surely enough, tension headaches can put a halt to pre-planned activities – not to mention test your patience, especially when they frequently recur. So, our NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City will let you in on three secrets to managing tension headaches and eliminating pain.
Prevention is always better than cure; that’s why it pays to make conscious decisions to achieve a healthier life. This includes clocking in enough sleep hours, eating nutrient-rich food, avoiding food triggers, and engaging in physical activities. We also strongly recommend drinking enough water and following healthy eating habits.
Stress can definitely do a number on your muscles and nervous system. It can set off painful symptoms like tension headaches if you fail to keep your stressors in check. You can try listing all of the things that affect your mental and emotional well-being and making a mental checklist of the things you need to adjust or work around these factors.
Another important and indispensable tip to eliminate muscle tension headaches is seeking NUCCA Care. This is especially crucial if you fell off a bike, got knocked off unconscious, or overextended your neck in a rear-end car collision. If you sustained injuries to your head and neck years or months ago, your uppermost neck bones have likely shifted away from their neutral or orthogonal alignment with the head.
Unfortunately, this postural problem can wreak havoc on various body systems because of the crucial position of the cervical spine. It can lead to neurovascular compression, increased muscle tension, and a compromised spinal column.
Find out if you should consider receiving upper cervical chiropractic adjustments by booking your appointment with Dr. Pete Tsiglieris. He will help you gauge how far the atlas and axis bone shifted and determine how long it will likely take to fix your posture and restore your body’s vitality. In no time, you can begin seeing improvements in your tension headaches and accompanying symptoms.
