What type of Headache do you have?
Tension Headache – This is the most common type of headache and is often due to muscle tension of the head, neck and shoulders. This headache is accompanied by pain or band like patterns of pressure around the head and neck. They are often due to prolonged tight contracted muscles, creating trigger points in the muscles themselves. The tightness is often due to postural problems or stress.
