Currently, one third of Americans suffer from tension headaches. Tension headaches occur when they are felt on both sides of the head as a dull, steady pain that often becomes intense at the end of the day. Unfortunately, traditional medicine has little to offer chronic headache sufferers or tension headache sufferers. If you have been dealing with tension headaches and are looking for a way to eliminate the pain without the medications and side effects, then maybe we have a solution for you!
A recent study published in the February 2010 issue of The Spine Journal, the official journal of the North American Spine Society, provided additional evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of chiropractic for certain types of headaches known as “cervicogenic headaches”. A report on the results of this study was also published online on February 26, 2010, on the site “Modern Medicine”.
The researchers found that the groups that received chiropractic treatments for tension or cervicogenic headaches showed significantly greater improvement in pain scores as compared to the other treatment groups. Those receiving the chiropractic care were more likely to have a 50-percent improvement in their pain.
Dr. Mitch Haas and a team of researchers at Western States Chiropractic College, were quoted in their conclusion as saying, “Our pilot study adds to an emerging picture of how beneficial spinal manipulation can be in treating headaches”
