If you've been suffering from regular tension headaches, then chances are you'll try anything to make them stop. Approximately 80 to 90 percent of people will eventually deal with tension headaches, so you're not alone. If traditional treatments haven't been helping, it could be time to experiment with alternative therapies. These aren't necessarily traditional medical procedures but have still been shown to provide many benefits.
All of the treatments listed below are safe and non-invasive, so you've got nothing to lose by trying them.
Nagging, persistent lower back pain can affect life at many different levels. Comfortable movement is impaired, sleep can be disrupted, and your ability to concentrate or work effectively can be hindered. Lower back pain may be a result of injury, overuse, or poor posture, but sometimes lower back pain is a symptom of a problem in other areas of the body.
Lower back pain is most frequently caused by direct damage to the muscles, tendons and / or ligaments that support the lower spine.
Modern life has many people working in ways that are not entirely natural to the human body, such as spending much of the day sitting hunched over a computer screen on straining their neck to focus on smart phone screens. These can lead to tension in trigger points which not only cause immediate pain and discomfort but can also lead to referred pain such as headaches, pain in the shoulders or finger pain.
Used to sitting in front of the computer working for several hours? Your devotion is impressive, but it can be stressful for your shoulders. The rotator cuff in your shoulder is a group of muscles connecting your shoulder blade and arm. Weak rotator cuffs triggered by frequent inactivity cause shoulders to feel tense because they are unable to provide postural support to your upper body. Pilates equips you with precise exercise patterns to strengthen your rotator cuff and relieve tender muscles.
