  • SCL-90-R is a multidimensional self-report symptom inventory devoloped by Derogatis and his coworkers. Since it was standardized into Korean version in 1978 by Won and Kim et aI., but it has been rarely studies for the clinical groups. Objectives : This study sought to define a diagnotic character of SCL-90-R of tension headache and insomnia inpatients groups. Methods : We determined a diagnotic character of 17 tension headache and 23 insomnia patients by means of SCL-90-R, and compared with normal groups in order to characterize subscale of SCL-90-R in patients with tension headache and insomnia from Neurasthenia. Results : 1. Male tension headache group has significant difference in Somatization and Depression subscales, female group in Somatization, Obsessive-Compulsive, Depression and Hostility subscales. 2. Female insomnia group has significant difference in Anxiety subscale. Although there are a little significiant, many subscales such as Somatization, Obsessive-Compulsive, Depression and Hostility are higher than normal group. 3. There are significant difference in GSI and PDSI of Global index, which means that we use that for objective index of tension headache and insomnia from Neurasthenia. Conclusions : All of these results show that SCL-90-R is useful inventory to characterize and screening for Neurasthenia.

  • Purpose: This study examined the effects of the forward head posture and tension type headache on neck movement among office workers. Methods: The subjects were 6 male and 21 female patients composed of a forward head posture group, forward head posture group with a tension type headache and a normal group. Each group consisted of 2 males and 7 females. The cranio-vertebral angle of the head and the angle of motion of the neck were measured. SPSS 23.0 was used for data analysis and one-way ANOVA was performed for the mean comparison of the neck movements in the three groups. Results: The participants had a limitation in the movement of all necks between the forward head posture group and forward head posture with tension type headache group compared to the normal subjects. The forward head posture with tension headache group had limited neck extension and lateral bending compared to the forward head posture group. Conclusion: Office workers have limitations in the movement of the neck when they are accompanied by forward head posture and tension headache. In particular, when accompanied with a tension headache, there is a restriction on the neck extension and side bending. This study is expected to provide basic data for the relief of tension headache and the treatment of forward head posture in office workers.

  • Purpose : The purpose of this study was to ascertain the effects of air-pressure cervical traction on the tension headache in the adults. Method : All subjects were treated with air-pressure cervical traction while 15 minutes a day, 3 times per week, for 4 weeks. The effects of air-pressure cervical traction were evaluated by HIT-6(headache impact test), VAS, and flexion, extension, left right flexion, left right rotation of cervical ROM. The measured data were analyzed by using repeated ANOVA. Especially in order to investigate the effect of air-pressure cervical traction. The comparison with among three measurement time. Results : The results of this study were as follows; 1) Prior and two weeks measurement did not show significant differences. The head forward posture than before the experiment, each experimental group was significantly increased(p<.05). 2) Prior and two weeks measurement did not show significant differences. The experimental group than ever cervical ROM of the movable range increased significantly(p<.05). 3) The experimental group was significantly lower than before the VAS(p<.05). 4) HIT score of the experimental group was significantly lower than before(p<.05). Conclusion : These findings suggest that air-pressure cervical traction had effect on the tension headache in the adults.

  • Objectives : This study was conducted to investigate the effects of fixed-intensity and varied-intensity electroacupuncture in pain and sensory threshold concerning parameters visual analogue scale(VAS), brief pain inventory(BPI) and quantitative sensory testing(QST), among chronic tension headache patients. Methods : Thirty patients with chronic tension headache were randomly assigned to three groups and received different kinds of electroacupuncture at $ST_{36}$ and $ST_{37}$. Group A received fixed-intensity electroacupuncture(fixed-EA), group B received varied-intensity electroacupuncture (varied-EA), and group C received only acupuncture treatment without electrical stimulation as a control group. The intervention was given three times per week, and continued in two weeks. All the experiments were conducted blindly. Results : Fixed-EA group showed a significant decrease of VAS and BPI compared to the baseline measurement, while both varied-EA and control group did not. Of the parameters of QST, subtraction of heat pain threshold(HPT) and cold pain threshold(CPT) slightly increased in all groups, but this was not significant. Conclusions : These results suggest that fixed-EA reduce pain and improve quality of life in patients with chronic tension headache and that acupuncture may regulate patient's pain sensitivity through changing sensory threshold.

  • Tension headache is one of the most common form of headache. It may occur at any age, but is most common in adults and adolescents. One cause of this muscle contraction is a response to stress that induces changes and imbalance on autonomic nerve system. And it is not easy to classify the type of tension headache simply in oriental medicine. In this case, we described a 25-year old woman who diagnosed as tension headache. She complained headache with nausea and vomiting, and her condition was improved through oriental medical treatment.
