Many people complain of “end of the day headaches.” Unfortunately, a large percentage of these people believe that these are normal and there is nothing that can be done to prevent/control them. WRONG!!! They are NOT normal and there are many things that can be done to curb this type of headache.
These headaches are muscle-tension headaches. They are caused by tight muscles on the back of your neck and at the base of your skull. Maintaining proper posture while standing and sitting is one of the most effective methods of preventing this type of headache. Sit/stand up straight- don’t slouch!
Many people just pop a few pain pills to make it go away. The pills will NOT make the cause of the pain go away- it will just mask the pain temporarily. Chiropractic adjustments and massage are the two optimal treatment choices if correcting your posture does not eliminate the pain. Call today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Hartwig. He can evaluate your posture, adjust your spine and break your daily cycle of pain. What do you have to lose…pain?
