If you are experiencing headaches more frequently and with more intensity, you are not alone. In these stressful times of stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines people around the world are more tense and anxious than ever before, leading to what The International Headache Society (IHS) in 1985 classified as a tension-type headache (TTH), the most common cause of headaches. Chiropractic care from the professionals at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center can help relieve the pressure and pain from headaches.
As the coronavirus pandemic makes its way through the world, tensions are high, and future uncertainties add to stress levels that can cause regular and persistent headaches. Tension headaches are marked by tightness and a dull ache in the back of your head, at times moving to the front of your forehead. This can make your day seem even longer and more stressful.

The short answer is yes. The chiropractors at Paramus are trained and experienced in the latest techniques and treatments to relieve and prevent a variety of pains and improve your overall health and well-being without using medication or surgical procedures. The adjustments made during chiropractic sessions improve motion and nervous system functions. Regular chiropractic treatments can help relieve the pressure that causes and increases tension headaches.
Your chiropractor will assess your specific situation and symptoms to design a treatment plan with manual therapy options to help reduce the intensity and frequency of your headaches. Treatment elements may include:
- Manual therapy
- Soft tissue therapy
- Education and lifestyle adjustments
- Referral to additional treatment forms, such as acupuncture or electrical stimulation therapies
Symptoms and Causes of Tension-Type Headaches

- Fatigued and sluggish
- Irritability and other behavioral changes
- Lack of focus
