Tension Headache

Tension headaches are similar to suboccipital strain. Initially it presents as a constant throbbing at the base of the skull. When this condition persists, the nerves at the base of the skull will become irritated and cause a sharp radiating pain that travels along the sides of the skull to the back of the eyes.

Doctor’s Treatment Plan
The treatment consists of specific (SMT) Spinal Manipulative Therapy (active or non-force techniques) to the area at the base of the skull, neck and upperback. The treatment also requires massage and trigger point therapy, doctor-assisted stretching techniques, posture specific exercises and applied physical therapy modalities.

  Note: It should always be considered that not all injuries are spinal related, and therefore not all injuries can be fully corrected with the benefit of chiropractic medicine. Further, the injury profiles and recommendations for treatment should in no way be used as a substitute for the care of a physician.
