Although there are many types of headaches, the two most common are headaches and tension headaches, which may occur singly or in combination form.
Tension headache is associated with increased muscle tension, often as a result of fatigue. Most people manifest the tension in the muscles of the neck, upper back and shoulders, which refers to pain in the neck. The muscles become tight and tender to develop the constriction and spasm of local area called “trigger points.” The tension headache is usually painless and stable with continued tightness in the neck and head. Researchers M.I.T. identified small muscles attached to the bone in the upper neck and through the foramen magnum attached to the dura.
Vascular Headache is the most common vascular migraine as a result of changes in the blood vessels of the head and neck. Migraines can be triggered by a number of factors, including stress, certain foods, and irregular sleep patterns or eating, and so on. Migraines are throbbing nature, can affect one side of the head, or both, and may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, visual obstruction and sensitivity to light or sound.
