Tension type headaches occur on both sides of the head usually around the temple travelling around to the forehead. Patients commonly describe it as a tight hat or vice that winds up. Most will range between mild to moderate intensity. If the intensity is high enough it can cause difficulty in concentration and sensitivity to light and noises. They can develop into migraines and migraines can develop into tension-type headaches. In severe cases you can have tension-type headaches and migraines at the same time. Most routine activities do not flare it up however prolonged positions with poor head and neck posture can aggravate the presentation.
We run all our headache/migraine patients through a thorough checklist and refer on if the presentation is more severe than it seems. Here at Physiolabs, we address all the factors contributing to your headache presentation. These include sitting, sleeping and workstation posture combined with hand-on treatment and corrective exercises.
