Tension headaches occur when neck and scalp muscles become tense or contract. The muscle contractions can be a response to stress, depression, head injury, or anxiety. They may occur at any age, but are most common in adults and older teens.
The osteopathic management we offer combines manual loosening of muscular tensions using hands on gentle techniques or a set of home exercises and postural adaptations.
