Tension Headache Treatment in Lancaster, CA
Tension headaches are one of the most common type of headache. Tension headaches are common in adults and children.
When the headache occurs two or more times a week, for a few months or longer, the condition is called chronic, as in chronic headache.
Tension headaches result from the contraction of neck and scalp muscles.

One hundred and twenty-seven Migraine patients (at least one Migraine per month) were divided into two groups for comparison. Group 1 received chiropractic adjustments at specific vertebral subluxations determined by the treating practitioner; group 2 served as controls and received inactive treatment (electrical stimulation with no current delivered). Subjects receiving chiropractic adjustments reported substantial improvement in Migraine frequency, duration, disability, and medication use following two months of treatment. One in five participants reported a 90% reduction in Migraines, and half reported significant improvement in Migraine severity.

Motrin Didn’t Help
"I was injured in a car accident, and suffered from headaches, neck and back pain. For over 6 months I suffered, as my doctor prescribed Motrin, which only masked the pain. My Mother-In-Law suggested I see Dr. Frye. After just a week of treatment, I was Headache Free!"
