Chiropractic Spokane WA Tension Headache

Do you or someone you know get frequent headaches in Spokane WA? Do they get frequent "Migraines" that are typically worse by the end of the day? If so, they are most likely not migraines but are getting Tension Headaches. Only about 12% of the population experience Migraine headaches, while up to 80% of the population experiences Tension headaches.

Tension headaches can be very intense which is why they have earned the nickname of the "migraine mimicker". They typically start at the base of the skull and as the neck gets more tense/tight can radiate around to the forehead in a headband distribution. If they get bad enough they can make it very difficult to concentrate, cause photo/phono-phobia, and sometimes cause nausea.
