In this article, we'll explore the top natural approaches – including Upper Cervical Care in Trinity to address tension headaches – so you can say goodbye to the throbbing pain. Don't suffer in silence! Read on to learn how to control your headache symptoms today.


Basics of Tension Headache

Tension headaches feel like a band is tightening around your head or forehead; it may feel like pressure behind your eyes or ears too. You might notice pain in one area more than others – sometimes, it's on both sides at once! The pain can last from minutes up to several days, depending on how long you've had the headache (the longer you have had it, the less likely that you'll get rid of it completely).

The symptoms of tension headaches are:

  • Pain on both sides of your head, which can be described as a tight band around your head
  • Discomfort in other parts of your face and neck, such as behind one ear or at the base of your head (the occiput)


Safely Address Your Headache Pains

Below are some of the simplest yet safest and most effective forms of relief for headache pains.

#1. Stay hydrated

The most effective way to avoid headaches is to stay hydrated. Dehydration can lead to a build-up of pressure in your head, which causes pain and discomfort. 

To ensure you're getting enough fluid, drink at least eight glasses of water daily (more if it's hot outside). You must also limit your consumption of caffeine-rich beverages like soda or coffee as these can worsen tension headaches!

#2. Practice good posture

Good posture is vital for everyone, but it's crucial if you have headaches. Keeping your head up, shoulders back, and breathing deeply can help prevent tension headaches from developing in the first place.

#3. Get your cervical spine adjusted by a migraine chiropractor

Upper Cervical Care is a safe, drug-free, and practical approach to addressing tension headaches. These adjustments help your body heal by realigning the joints and bone in the neck.

Cervical chiropractors like Dr. Dingus use low-force adjustments that may feel like a deep massage or stretch to some people. After receiving an adjustment, patients commonly report feeling better almost immediately!

Upper Cervical Care in Trinity

For definite lasting results, visit Dr. Dingus of West Pasco Chiropractic Clinic. He will help you address your headaches and pain naturally.

Dr. Dingus is an expert in giving Upper Cervical Care in Trinity. This approach involves adjusting the bones at the base of your skull that connects to nerves that run down into your brainstem (the part of your spine where nerves branch out). It's a vital part of the healthcare and wellness routine of individuals with a history of neck and head injuries that often trigger "undetected" changes in the C1 and C2 bones. 

The goal is to realign these bones and stimulate neurovascular integration or "NVI". When this happens, it allows for improved blood flow throughout all areas of the body, including those responsible for processing pain signals from injured tissues such as muscles or joints – this helps reduce any inflammation caused by injury, strain, or overuse injuries which may lead to chronic tension headaches over time if left untreated!
