Chiropractor for Tension Headaches
January 01, 2019

Do you get dull aching headaches? It could be high blood pressure. Hypertension is often called a silent killer because it can go years without symptoms and lead to heart disease, stroke, and death.

A common symptom is a hypertension headache and your chiropractor can help relieve it.

People with frequent headaches and migraines may take over the counter medication to help alleviate it, but rarely look into the cause of the headache.

Many people assume it’s just a part of life, but hypertension headaches are nothing to dismiss. Undiagnosed hypertension is rampant with as many as 1 in 3 Americans having it, but few realize it.

What is a Hypertension Headache?

When a person’s veins become inflamed or obstructed, it can lead to an increase in pressure. This increase can be measured using a blood pressure cuff at the doctor’s office. High blood pressure can often be treated with medication, diet, and exercise.

People with high blood pressure may endure hypertension headaches when it is elevated. Blood pressure can elevate during physical activity and trigger a headache.

A hypertension headache usually occurs as a pain behind the eye and can be accompanied by heart palpitations, dizziness, fatigue or nervousness.

Chiropractors and Headache Relief

When you visit a chiropractor, they will want to do an examination. They’ll ask you the reason for the visit and get your medical background including if you’ve been diagnosed with high blood pressure and any other issues.

They’ll want to take X-rays to see your alignment. Then he’ll discuss with you any procedures you may need. While you may go into the office to manage hypertension headaches, there could be other issues the chiropractor will address.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

People often come to chiropractors for headaches caused by everything from stress to high blood pressure. While a chiropractor can help with these, you should continue to take any medication given to you by a doctor and continue to see your doctor on a regular basis.

If the chiropractor provides you with instructions following the procedure, then you should follow them as you would any other doctor. Failure to follow instructions could result in injury or discomfort.

Most systems in the body are controlled by the brain and nervous system. The spinal cord is the primary way messages get taken from the brain to other areas of the body. The subtle manipulation of the spine can have a tremendous impact on these systems.

Chiropractors can manipulate the cervical spine to help alleviate the pressure. This area of the spine is known to put pressure on the brain and head to an artificial increase in pressure. People who get the procedure to realign this area often see a decrease in blood pressure.

This can lead to the elimination of a hypertension headache.
