DID YOU KNOW?
MUSCLE TENSION, ANXIETY, PHYSICAL INJURIES, POOR POSTURE, SPINE MISALIGNMENT AND MIGRAINE HEADACHE ALL CONTRIBUTE TO TENSION HEADACHES.
Tension headaches are usually triggered by stress and underlying muscle and spine misalignment. Muscle contraction is a natural response to stress causing neck tension, jaw grinding, eye squinting, brow furrowing and exaggerated shoulder shrug. Muscles attaching to the bones of the spine pull on the spine and compress nerves exiting the spine causing pressure, pain and stiffness. This results in tight muscles of the back and neck which connect to muscles of the scalp creating widespread muscle spasm.
Repetitive and exaggerated stress responses lead to painful conditions such as Tension headache and muscle spasms.
