Chronic Tension Headaches: Causes & Relief

Chronic headaches and migraines impact your lifestyle by limiting your options. When you have a headache, you do not want to spend time in the sun or under any light source. Your pain may prevent you from engaging in your favorite activities. By working with a chiropractor for headaches, you address the underlying problems with your headaches.

Causes of Chronic Headaches

Chronic migraine treatment or headache treatment starts with clarifying the cause of your pain. A Stillwater chiropractor may determine that your headaches are tension headaches and may recommend chiropractic care to address the underlying reason for your pain. Other causes of headaches include:

  • Tension in the neck and shoulders
  • Stress in your daily life
  • Injuries to the neck, shoulders, back or head
  • Infections, such as an ear infection
  • Inflammation
  • Excess pressure on your nerves

Since many headaches stem from tension and stress, you want to address the underlying reasons for your pain. A Stillwater chiropractor provides treatment after clarifying the reason for your discomfort.
