DO YOU GET TENSION HEADACHES?
Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and can be triggered by muscular tension, bony misalignment, eyestrain, postural patterns, and other musculoskeletal imbalances.
Often described as a tight band wrapping around the head, it’s name indicates the role of stress and emotional conflict in triggering the pain and contracting the muscles in the face, neck, scalp and jaw as a consequence of jaw c
lenching, missed meals, anxiety, or insufficient sleep.
Sometimes over training, staring at the computer for too long or even caring new born babies and toddlers can leave many mums in upper back and neck pain that go on to become tensional headaches. If you're a mum reading this you will understand very well what we are talking about all to well unfortunately.
Massage can be an effective therapy for those suffering from tension headaches.
Functioning by promoting blood, oxygen and vital nutrient flow to the affected areas, and reducing muscle tension, regular massage can reduce the prevalence, occurrence and severity of symptoms.
