Chiropractic Helps Tension Headaches

A recent study shows that chiropractic can help people with tension headaches and vastly improve their quality of life. Tension headaches are also know as ‘Stress Headaches” and usually affect the entire head unlike migraines which tend to be one-sided.

In a recent double blind study, researchers found that spinal manipulation “showed improvements in their physical role, bodily pain, and social functioning” after only one month of treatment.
