Whether they’re moderately uncomfortable or throbbing like a jackhammer, headaches afflict people of all ages. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), close to 50% of adults worldwide have experienced a headache within the last year. Missed work and school days often result when the pounding pain prevents sufferers from attending to their daily tasks.
As the most common type of a headache, tension headaches can result from stress, anxiety or tight muscles in your shoulders or neck. Other common types include migraines, sinus headaches and cluster headaches.
Though prescription or over-the-counter medications can provide pain relief, they don’t address the cause of the pain. Those looking for a natural alternative may find relief through precise chiropractic adjustments to reduce nerve interference. You may experience the release of muscle tension, which in turn can provide relief from headache pain.
