Chronic head and neck tension is very common in both men and women and can develop at any age. Most frequently, chronic tension can occur when an individual performs physical tasks that are either repetitive, strenuous, or both. Because everyone has a different set of lifestyle habits the cause is different from one chronic tension sufferer to the next.
Lifestyle factors can spark a tension condition. Many have jobs where sitting is the norm. Perhaps those individuals are perched over a desk doing computer work for hours on end. It is certainly the case that staying in the same posture for a very long time can cause tension in the muscles of the head, neck, and shoulders. People in sedentary positions can develop stiffness, soreness, or pain that ranges from a dull ache to shooting pain.
Repeated exertion is often a contributing factor in jobs that demand physical labor. Others develop a pronounced tension in the head and neck regions because they engage in sports. Regardless of how one develops a chronic tension condition, medication and massage may not be enough to alleviate the pain and tension. Head and neck tension treatments that incorporate advanced technologies may be far more effective.
Traditional Head and Neck Tension Treatments Produce Temporary Results
When head and neck tension become chronic and severe it is harder to get well. They say that time heals all things, but the reality is that chronic and severe muscular tension conditions usually do NOT get well by leaving them alone, or giving them some time.
People that suffer with protracted tension and pain will usually turn to medications like muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory drugs. In some scenarios this may be enough, but for many who suffer it roughly equates to ‘kicking the can down the road’. Medications often delay the inevitable return of tension and pain. Muscle relaxers and painkillers can provide temporary pain relief but they cannot correct the root causes of tension.
Dr. Robison provides cutting edge diagnostic tools to uncover the root causes for tension and pain. Conditions such as these are often linked to bite force problems and neuromuscular force imbalances in the head, neck, face and teeth. A correct diagnosis can tell you if this is indeed the case for you. If it is the case, non-invasive treatment modalities you could free you from the tension and pain for good with no need for medications.
Regardless of how the chronic tension and pain developed, highly effective head and neck tension treatments always target root causes – NOT symptoms.
Understanding a patient's unique chronic tension condition is the first step. Comprehensive diagnosis is the key to exposing root causes for pain.
Most chronic head and neck tension patients can achieve long-term freedom from tension and pain in 12 weeks or less.
...and NO MORE PAIN.
