  • Background: Despite tension type headache is popular, the exact mechanism and method of treatment are not certain yet. So, we supposed the basic mechanism of tension type headache is myogenic, and did Tienchu acupoint block, occipital nerve block, and trigger point injection in tension type headache patients. Methods: Fifty-seven tension type headache patients were treated with local anesthetics and small dose of steroid. The intensity of pain and effect of every treatment was evaluated as Verbal Rating Score (VRS; 0~10) before and after every treatment. Evaluation of treatment was based on the time of treatment (1,2 times, 3 times, 4,5 times). Goal of treatment was VRS reaching below two point and it was considered as treated state. Results: Symptom improvement rates of each treatment were 90% (1, 2 times), 91% (3 times), 70% (4, 5 times) respectively. VRS reduction more than 50% rates were 60%, 64%, 60% respectively. Treated state (VRS<2) rates were 33%, 27%, 30% respectively. Conclusion: Tienchu acupoint block, occipital nerve block, trigger point injection were sorts of most effective and simply applicable modalities of treatment in tension type headache.

  • This study was designed to evaluate the pain characteristics of tension-type headache by the tongue ridge. Patients with tension-type headache visited the Department of Oral Medicine, K University Dental Hospital were recruited to this study. Experimental group(n=65) was composed of tension-type headache with the tongue ridge and control group(n=65) was composed of tension-type headache without the tongue ridge. Evaluation list was pain quality, pain intensity, pain laterality, pain increase by routine physical activity and then it was analyzed statistically. The results were as follows: 1. Pain quality of tension-type headache patient was significantly different by the tongue ridge(p=0.049). 2. Pain intensity of tension-type headache patient was significantly different by the tongue ridge(p=0.010). 3. Pain laterality of tension-type headache patient was not significantly different by the tongue ridge. 4. Pain increase by routine physical activity of tension-type headache patient was not significantly different by the tongue ridge. Therefore, it was considered that the tension-type headache patient was influenced by the tongue ridge in the pain quality and pain intensity.

Methods: We treated a tension-type headache using Korean medical treatment including ByeolGab pharmacopuncture for 6 days a week for 2 weeks. As a measurement, the numerical rating scale (NRS), the Henry Ford Headache Disability Inventory (HDI), and a six point Likert scale were used to confirm pharmacopuncture therapy efficacy. Results: After treatment, symptoms related to tension-type headache and other complaints were decreased and evaluation using the NRS, HDI, and six-point scale showed improvement in the patient. Conclusions: This study shows that Korean medical treatment with ByeolGab pharmacopuncture has beneficial effects on control of tension-type headache and improvement in quality of life for patients.

  • 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: This study assessed the differences in the forward head posture (FHP), cervical range of motion, and headache clinical parameters in episodic tension-type headache (ETTH) subjects, chronic tension-type headache (CTTH) subjects, and healthy controls (university students). Methods: Fifteen CTTH subjects, 15 ETTH subjects and 15 controls without headache were examined. Side-view images of each group were taken in both the sitting and standing positions, in order to assess the FHP by measuring the craniovertebral angle. The CROM was used to measure the cervical range of motion. A headache diary was kept for 4 weeks to assess the headache intensity, frequency, and duration. Results: The craniovertebral angle was smaller, ie, there was a greater FHP, in the CTTH and ETTH subjects than in the healthy controls in both the sitting and standing positions (p<0.05). The CTTH and ETTH subjects showed a lower cervical range of motion than the healthy controls in the total range of motion as well as in the half-cycles (p<0.05). Conclusion: The increased FHP and decreased cervical range of motion might be a contributing factor in the initiation of tension-type headache.
