Spinal Manipulation for Tension-Type Headaches

Tension-type headache patients treated with the combination of spinal manipulation and exercise experienced greater improvements with respect to headache frequency and severity than those treated with either myofascial release of the suboccipital muscles or exercise alone. Doctors of chiropractic commonly use a combination of spinal manipulation and specific exercises when managing patients with tension-type and other forms of headache.
