Tension headaches affect about 75 percent of Americans and are described as a constant band-like pain, tightness, or pressure around the forehead or back of the head and neck. Every headache or migraine can be a little different, and they all depend on how people deal with their pain. Where some people deal with headaches and migraines by taking medication, others find alternative measures such as visiting the chiropractor.
A chiropractic adjustment in the cervical vertebrae can be extremely helpful by helping to release the tension causing the headache or migraine.
