1) Cervical soft tissue massage
The paraspinal tissues of the neck’s cervical soft tissue massage can reduce stress headache spasms.
2) Occipital decompression
To decompress the occipital region, you must first extend your paraspinal muscles, which are located near the base of your skull (scalp bone at the top of the neck). Occipital decompression at home may be accomplished by rolling a hand towel around the back of the neck. It has eliminated migraines in several of my patients. I’ve found that this method has helped me avoid migraines. To administer an occipital decompression therapy, I’ve taught my patients how to physically stretch the transverse sesame.
3) Myofascial unwinding technique
A method known as myofascial unwinding is unraveling the tissues that enclose tense muscles.
4) Spinal manipulation
Osteopaths may induce tiny joint releases to assist the spine move more segmentally and alleviate muscular tension by manipulating the spine. There is evidence that this osteopathic therapy may help alleviate headaches. Light osteopathic therapy includes spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), which has been demonstrated to be superior to a placebo in the treatment of cervicogenic headaches. Compared to a placebo, spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) is more effective in preventing headaches caused by cervicogenic factors and treating acute tension headaches. Amitriptyline treatment is more effective than spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) for the prevention of tension headaches. Amitriptyline has been shown to be beneficial in the prevention of migraines in SMT (strength of recommendation).
