Get a handle on your tension headaches!
A migraine is a vascular headache that involves pain on one side of your head in addition to nausea and sensitivity to light and sound. However, there are other types of headaches that are quite common and can easily be treated without the use of medication. Most of us have experienced tension headaches – a type of headache induced by the tightening of muscles in the face, shoulder, and upper back area. These types of headaches are quite common. I would like to discuss the causes behind the tension headache and describe methods that can be used to relieve muscle tension and remove the pains associated with the headaches.
