I'll bet you're like a lot of chronic tension headache sufferers who come here.
You've been to your doctor. Neurologists. Maybe other health professionals too. And they've prescribed expensive medication and treatments that haven't done anything to get you relief from your chronic tension headaches.
They've done nothing to help you get your old life back.

Now - out of desperation - you've searched the Internet and found this site. You're hoping to find answers, like...
Why can't your doctor get
of your tension headaches?
The answer is because he doesn't know what's really causing them.
But I do.
Not only that, but I know how to get rid of that cause so you can work out at the gym...watch your favorite TV shows...play with your kids...or take part in your favorite activities free from headaches.
All it takes is 2 simple steps. And I'm about to reveal them to you.
But before I do, I want to show you...
The true cause of your chronic tension headaches
Let me ask you a question: Is the back of your neck tight?
I'll bet it is. Your shoulders and upper back are probably tight, too.
You know what? That's what's causing your chronic headaches - tight and spasmed muscles in your neck, shoulders and upper back.
They cause your headaches by irritating nerve endings and restricting blood flow to the back of your head.
(It's like stepping on a turned-on garden hose.)
The 2 simple steps you've got to take to get rid of this tightness
so you can get rid of your headaches and start enjoying life again
The 2 simple things you've got to do to get rid of your chronic tension headaches are:
1. Resume normal blood flow to the back of your head
2. Stop the nerve ending irritation there
So how do you do that? Again, 2 simple things:
1. Get your neck, shoulders and upper back nice and loose
2. Make sure they don't tighten up again
How to keep your neck, shoulders and upper back
from tightening up (so you don't get chronic headaches)
Do you work all day at a computer terminal? Does your job force you to hunch over? Are you on the phone a lot?
If you're like a lot of people these days, the answer to these questions is "yes." And chances are you've developed poor posture because of it.
See, poor posture - especially at work - causes your neck, shoulder and upper back muscles to tighten up and develop spasms. You can't let that happen. Because if you do, you're setting yourself up for chronic headaches.
So every hour or so get up and walk around. Do neck circles. Don't slouch. And here's a really good stretch you should do several times a day...
A stretch to loosen up your neck
and help keep tension headaches away
This is a simple behind-the-back stretch. You can do it sitting or standing.
going to sit, make sure you have a chair with backing
that comes halfway up your back.
Hook your arms over
the back of the chair and pull your shoulder blades
together (if you're standing, assume the military
position: head up, shoulders back and stomach tight). As you do this, make sure you stick your chest out.
This is so important I want you to exaggerate a little (and make sure you keep you head up, too).
Now pull your shoulder blades
together until you feel a pull in your shoulder joints.
Don't go overboard - you don't want to cause
I want you to hold it for three full minutes (don't cheat and quit early because the length of this stretch is very important). Then slowly release the stretch.
I suggest you take breaks throughout the day to perform this stretch (maybe every hour or so). It will help a lot!
Did the back of your neck loosen up a little after you did this stretch? Most likely it did. Chances are if you had a headache, it eased up.
Unfortunately this relief won't last too long if your tension headaches are chronic. That's because the muscles in the back of your neck are always tight. Same thing (most likely) with your upper back and shoulders.
Why? Because they've been under so much stress from poor posture for so long that muscle fibers are constantly tearing. When these tears heal scar tissue is left behind.
And this scar tissue locks your tightness and spasms in place.
This continual tightness means there's always a restriction of blood flow to the back of your head. There's always nerve ending irritation there.
(That's why over-the-counter pain killers and your doctor's prescriptions don't work.)
This is why your headaches won't go away.
