These headaches are routinely passed off as tension caused by stress. What is actually happening is stress is acting on your posture to cause the headache. Get rid of the abnormal posture and you will get rid of the headaches.
Heads are heavy. When it your head is shifted out of position relative to your shoulders for a long period of time, muscle and joint tension builds up and this causes tension headaches. The most common posture to cause this is forward head carriage or when you head is forward of your shoulders but any displacement will cause this. I have copied some of the most common postures below. And the more dramatic the posture, usually the more frequent or intense the tension headaches.
These postures occur mostly because of lifestyle and work. Many of the activities of our lives promote or require these postures but they can often be easily corrected with chiropractic and simple exercises so if you suffer from tension headaches, do yourself a favour and call us!
