Headache Relief: Relaxing Your Muscles

You keep hearing that the reason you have so many headaches may be the result of muscle tension. You should really relax, people say to you. So, you think to yourself, okay, take a deep breath, relax…but nothing much happens except for maybe the tiniest shred of relief. Here’s what you need to know: Getting your muscles to release, ensuring your oral framework functions optimally, and more, are not things you can just snap your fingers and expect to happen! Instead, they require some attention to particular details. The good news within this issue? We can help you achieve true headache relief and muscle relaxation very quickly!

Work On Tension Relief For Yourself

If you know that your life is stressful (most people experience stress every day!), that you internalize this experience and it usually presents itself as muscle tension, etc., then it’s important you remember that no matter how much help you get from outside sources, you can still encourage headaches. We always suggest that patients seek out ways to relieve emotional tension, as it often becomes physical! When you learn how to release your muscles, rather than tense them, you make achieving headache relief easier. Possible solutions? Try yoga, meditation, painting, drawing, listening to calming playlists, therapy. Whatever works for you!

Let Us Help You Relieve Stress

Now, about the strictly physical side of what’s going on: You may be tensing your muscles and other tissues up simply because there’s no other way to function properly. If your smile is misaligned, getting your teeth to let you speak and chew may require complex poses that strain your muscles. Your alignment or oral health problems may not really allow you to relax your muscles or your jaw joints. Issues with posture may also make it difficult to simply relax. We can help with all of the above and more, thereby guiding you toward serious headache relief as a result.
