Creating Waves of Awareness
Dr Ajay Yadav
Tension headaches are very common, affecting up to 90% of the general population in city. Unfortunately, they're also among the most neglected and difficult types
of headaches to treat. Pain is caused by tightness (contraction) of your neck,
and scalp muscles. With a tension headache, the pain often starts at the back
of your head and moves forward, so that it eventually includes your neck,
scalp, and head. It’s often described as feeling like you have a tight band
across your head. It may be caused by staying in one position for a long time,
such as in reading, using a computer, or playing video games smoking high
music. It may be also caused by stress, but sometimes there is no obvious
cause. If your headaches happen 15 or more days in a month for several months,
they are considered chronic tension headaches. If they occur less frequently,
they are called episodic tension headaches.
