Tips on Treating a Tension-Type Headache

Over-the-counter medications are the first line of defense for treating the common headache. Some other methods:

  • Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the forehead, eyes or temples.

  • Use a warm towel to relax neck and shoulder muscles.

  • Take a warm bath or shower to help relieve tension.

  • Rest in a quiet, darkened room.

  • Use simple relaxation techniques: breathing deeply, relaxing your muscles and using visual images.

  • Exercise for 30 minutes three times a week. Any aerobic exercise slows your heart rate and releases painkilling chemicals in the brain.

  • Get enough sleep; sleep can relieve headaches.
