Headaches: Everything You Need to Find Relief From Headache Pain
What You Need to Know About Headaches
According to Harvard Health and Medical News Today, tension-type headaches are one of the top 3 most common headaches affecting American’s today. Harvard Health states that “this is a common form of primary headache. The pain usually arises gradually, in the middle of the day.
A person may feel as if they have a tight band around their head, a constant, dull ache on both sides of the head and pain spreading to or from the neck.”
What are the common causes of tension headaches? Tight muscles in your neck and upper back pain that refer pain into your head. This will feel like a deep burning ache in your neck and a tight band that wraps around your head and into your eyes and forehead.
What causes neck pain and upper back pain? Poor posture is the number one culprit. According to the American Chiropractic Association “Poor posture can lead to excessive strain on our postural muscles and may even cause them to shorten, when held in certain positions for long periods of time.”
When a muscle is held in a consistently shortened position and not allowed to elongate completely (stretch) it will adapt to that position. Like they say: “if you don’t use it, you lose it”. The longer the muscle stays shortened, the harder it is to elongate it. This is the most common culprit of neck pain.
