How to Cure Chronic Headaches

This video course addresses tension-type headaches, which have biomechanical origin (joints and muscles).

Because headaches can be a sign of something more serious such as a developing brain aneurysm, brain tumor or parasitic infection, see your doctor to rule out these “red flag” conditions.

Tension headaches are characterized by a dull, persistent pain that feels like your head is in a vise.  Oftentimes it is accompanied by neck stiffness/tightness of the muscles.  The posterior neck muscles that balance the head from the back become fatigued due to constant forward head posture.  Another possibility is that nerves that branch out the upper part of the neck and innervate the scalp become pinched, triggering a headache.

The key to eliminating this form of headache is to improve neck alignment so that there is less muscle tension.  Other preventive self-help measures are mentioned as well.
