Tension & Cervicogenic Headache

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache associated with tightness of the soft tissue in the head, neck and shoulders. Tension headaches could be releated to poor posture, stress, depression, anxiety or head injury. Tension headaches are usually experienced on both sides of the head.  Tension headaches usually start at the back of the head and spread to the front. Tension headaches may occur when head and neck muscles become tense. The muscle tension may be as result of stress, anxiety, depression, and/or head injury. Advanced Soft Tissue Release, developed by Dr. Jacobs/ specialist (patent pending), is a very gentle, effective and natural approach to treating tension headaches.
