Tension Headaches

These headaches can be debilitating, impacting daily activities and overall quality of life. At our chiropractic clinic in Newmarket, we specialize in providing relief from tension headaches through personalized chiropractic care.

Tension headaches typically feel like a dull, aching pain or pressure around the forehead, temples, or back of the head and neck. Some people describe the sensation as having a tight band or vice squeezing around their head. The pain is usually mild to moderate and can last from 30 minutes to several hours. In some cases, it may persist for days. Unlike migraines, tension headaches are not usually accompanied by nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light and sound. However, some people may experience a mild sensitivity to light or noise.

Cause of Tension Headaches

  1. Stress: Emotional or mental stress can lead to muscle tension in the head and neck.
  2. Poor Posture: Prolonged periods of sitting or standing with poor posture can strain muscles and cause headaches.
  3. Eye Strain: Staring at a computer screen or other digital devices for extended periods can cause eye strain, leading to headaches.
  4. Fatigue: Lack of sleep or physical exhaustion can contribute to the development of headaches.
  5. Dehydration: Not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration, a common trigger for headaches.
  6. Muscle Tension: Tight muscles in the neck, shoulders, and scalp can lead to headaches.
