Tension headache is one of the most common types of headache. It is usually described as constant pressure over the head, and it can last from few minutes to days. It is also more common in women than men. Some causes of tension headache are as follow:
- Not getting enough sleep (i.e., lack of sleep)
- Not eating well (i.e., poor diet)
- Bad posture
Acupuncture and manual therapy are both very effective techniques in treating tension headaches without the use of drugs. To address tension headaches in long term, causes of the headache should be identified and resolved.
