Chronic tension headaches, characterized by a dull, aching pain that seems to tighten around the head, can significantly disrupt daily life. Traditional treatments often provide only temporary relief.
In this context, upper cervical chiropractic care emerges as a beacon of hope, offering a more sustained solution. Dr. Joey Kramer at Hope Chiropractic in Southlake, Texas, specializes in this nuanced approach, focusing on the upper cervical spine to alleviate chronic tension headaches.
