Muscle Tension Headaches

These form of headaches typically involve muscle of the head, neck, and or upper back. Most common muscles include the occipitals, trapezius, SCM, spinous, and the semispinalis.

Tightness, spasm, and trigger points in these muscles often cause the pain that travels into the head.

The causes can be mental, physical, or even both. Things like a stressful situation at home or prolonged poor posture at work. Now, the muscles we talked about can pull vertebrae out of alignment creating more nerve pressure and pain.

Try to minimize stress levels and get the spine in alignment.
