Tension Headaches

December 18, 2009

I hear a lot of people talk about how they always get migraines without fully realizing with a migraine headache actually is. It isn’t just a bad headache. In fact I get terrible headaches but I have never had a migraine, they have all been tension headaches. Tension headaches appear when muscle tension impinges nerves that run into the head region, causing referral pain. I have found that when people experience headaches it come from two places, the back of the neck or the upper trapz. Even just putting pressure on those areas while headaching makes the pain stop…until you let go. Case in point. Massage does wonders for most headaches.
