Tension headaches are similar to suboccipital strain. Initially
it presents as a constant throbbing at the base of the skull. When this condition persists, the nerves at the base of the skull will become irritated and cause a sharp radiating pain that travels along the sides of the skull to the back of the eyes.
Doctor’s Treatment Plan
The treatment consists of specific (SMT) Spinal Manipulative Therapy (active or non-force techniques) to the area at the base of the skull, neck and upperback. The treatment also requires massage and trigger point therapy, doctor-assisted stretching techniques, posture specific exercises and applied physical therapy modalities.
