One type of headaches our medical and chiropractic specialists typically deal with are Tension headaches.
Tension headaches are the most common type of headaches among adults. They are generally described as stress headaches.
A tension headache may appear intermittently or randomly. An “Episodic Tension Headaches” are present less than 15 days per month. An episodic tension headache may be defined as a mild to moderate constant band-like pain, tightness, or pressure around the forehead or back of the head and neck. These headaches may last from 30 minutes to several days. Episodic tension headaches usually begin gradually, and often occur in the middle of the day.
“Chronic Tension headaches” are present more than 15 days per month and even be present daily. Of particular interest the “severity” of a tension headache increases considerably with its regularity. Chronic tension headaches come and go over a prolonged period of time. The pain is usually throbbing and upsets the front, top, or sides of the head. Although the pain may vary in strength during the day, the pain is almost always present. Chronic tension headaches do not affect vision, balance, or strength.
- Tension headaches usually don’t prevent a person from performing daily tasks.
