TENS and Tension Headaches
What are Tension headaches?
Tension headaches are characterised by pain resulting from muscle tightening in the neck and head. The tightening leads to a slightly decreased blood flow to the surrounding areas and irritation of the pain fibers in the skin, muscles and blood vessel walls.
More than 90% of tension headaches occur on both sides of the head. The pain is usually dull and can build gradually throughout the day. Sleep often helps a tension headache but they are also known to continue into the night and even after waking up.
What is the best tension headache treatment? TENS or electro acupuncture?
