Tension Headaches

Tension Headaches Treatment NYCTension headaches are the most common type of headaches. The pain from a tension headache is different from a migrane. It is constant and can spread throughout your neck and upper back causing sore muscles or even dizziness.

The most common causes of tension headaches are:

  • anxiety
  • stress
  • depression
  • poor posture
  • improper breathing
  • food allergies

Though pain relievers such as aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen can mask the pain from a tension headache, they don’t address headache cause and frequent use can create unwanted side effects.

Treatment with trigger point therapy, Active Release Technique®, Fascial Manipulation, Transverse Cross Friction Massage, electrotherapeutics and spinal manipulation, or Cox decompression therapy may be part of the hands on work we use to treat your chronic tension headaches.
