Boulder Physical Therapy
There are a variety of headache types that people may experience throughout the course of their lives. In fact, tension headaches are without a doubt one of the most prevalent types of head pain experienced by Americans. Offering physical therapy in Boulder, CO, Boulder Sports Chiropractic is here to help. There are many benefits of engaging with a chiropractor for your headaches, one of the most common being pain relief. Generally with a headache, the patient will experience a 'tightness' or sensation of pressure around the head. The muscles around the neck can become tender, and you will usually feel pain behind the eyes. In most individuals, tension headaches occur in spurts, around 2 or 3 times a month. Normally there is no nausea or vomiting experienced. Interestingly, studies show that females are generally more predisposed to tension headaches compared to men. The most prevailing symptoms to identify this type of headache are muscular tightness or stiffness experienced in the neck, with pain often referring to the forehead or on the lower aspect of the skull. Typically, if life stressors are not altered, these headaches will become chronic in nature.
