A Background on Headaches

What is your natural response when you feel headaches coming on? Do you reach for a pill bottle? Do you turn off audio in the room? Do you drink lots of water? The tension headache is the most common type of headache among adults and people have many different ways of dealing with them.

A tension headache may be a temporary experience, resulting from dehydration or stress, but if headaches become chronic, it could be time for a more long-term solution. Addressing the tension itself can work to prevent reoccurring headaches. Learn more about tension headaches and how to relieve pain without drugs.


What are Tension Headaches?

Tension headaches are also referred to as episodic headaches or stress headaches. These headaches usually last for an average of 30 minutes at a time. If the painful occurrences continue for over 15 consecutive days, they are considered chronic.

What Do Tension Headaches Feel Like?

You may be familiar with the unpleasant sensation of a tension headache. It can start off with obvious tension and transition into throbbing pain. The following are common feelings associated with this type of headache:

  • Dull pain
  • Tightness
  • Pressure around the forehead
  • Tension on the back of the head or neck
  • Squeezing of the skull

How Can You Relieve Tension Headaches?

The first step to preventing and relieving pain from tension headaches is by reducing the tension in your neck and shoulders. When the muscles become tense, they can pinch the nerves in the upper body and send pain into the skull. The weight of the head can increase the tension in the upper body, especially when held in improper posture.

What is Neck Traction?

Neck traction, also known as cervical traction, is a drug-free method to relieve neck pain. Neck traction can be used for neck arthritis, herniated/bulging disc in the neck, neck strains and cervical muscle spasms.

The Neck Comforter Provides Neck Traction at Home.

DR-HO'S Neck Comforter provides neck traction at-home. This device inflates around the neck to stretch out tense muscles in the shoulders and neck. This comfortable pillow is made from soft velvety fabric and can be taken anywhere. The inflatable pump can be used manually and even relieves the weight of the head off the shoulders by providing extra support.

If your tension headaches are caused by muscle tension in your upper body, using neck traction daily can help alleviate pain in not only your head, but your whole upper body. The pillow can also be inflated slightly to provide a more gentle form of support. You can engage in neck traction in the car, in bed, on a plane, or anywhere you feel pain manifest.
