This question is impossible to give a definite answer. The reasons can be many: headache, high or low blood pressure, vasodilation, and pinching in the spine, the clips in the cervical spine, osteochondrosis, glaucoma, increased intracranial pressure, and more. But most people, every day sit for 8 hours working time at a computer, often a headache due to problems with the spine, and whiplash.
As an osteopath, I can tell you that to get rid of pain for good will not help any exercise. In order to fix the problem, you have to work with the skull and spine. However, to remove or greatly reduce the pain is quite possible on their own, without resorting to pain medication. To perform these exercises do not need any tools: simply being in a quiet room and not be distracted.
If the cause of the pain was the clip in the cervical spine, should help a simple exercise. It is best to carry it out as soon as you feel pain. Sitting on a chair, relax completely. Gently and slowly push your head back as far as possible. Important: to see the need in front of you and not up. Hold this position for a few seconds, then relax. The head itself will return to its original position. Head tilted back to the limit, you can put your hands on your chin and push the head.
If the previous exercise didn’t save you completely from pain, followed by make another. It is especially effective for pain in top of head extending to eyes. Also sitting on a chair, completely relaxed and slightly extended his neck forward, tilt your head, trying to touch the chin to the chest. Then put on the head, hands chained to the castle and relax them, allowing the elbow to droop. This will help to tilt your head to the limit. Hold for a few seconds and return to starting position. Repeat this exercise no more than 2-3 times for 6-8 times a day.
Another exercisethat can help ease pain in the head. It is performed both sitting and standing. Raise your hands to the head. Press both thumbs to the top of the zygomatic arches, clasping his other fingers back. Looking up, take a deep slow breath (about 10 seconds), while trying to tilt your head back, however, holding her hands. Put your eyes down. Exhale (6-8 seconds), the maximum tilt the head to the chest, stretching but not straining the neck muscles. Repeat the exercise 5-6 times.
If you have a headache mainly in the occipital part, it is possible to recommend the following exercise. Sit down, keeping your head straight or slightly tilted forward. Grasp it from above with the hand, as in the previous exercise. Between the skull and the first vertebra find middle finger pain point. Push on it with your finger for about two minutes. Repeat 3-6 times. If the pain will stop sooner, stop the exercise.
With this pain point is connected and the fifth exercise. Two thumbs feel sore spots between the skull and the first vertebra. Start a gentle massage with two fingers simultaneously: 15 a circular motion clockwise. Then you need the same as in the previous exercise, press on the point for 1.5-2 minutes.
Reduce high blood pressure and thus relieve pain following exercise will help. Lying down or sitting, close your eyes. Then push down with your fists forever and start breathing diaphragm. If this type of breathing takes you in deeper, put on the stomach a book or a bottle of water. This will allow better control of the process.
If to blame a headache vasodilation, try to work with the temples. Put the fingers of both hands to the area at the temples, where there is a pulse. Feel the moment of pulsation, of “push” and stronger squeeze whiskey fingers. Hold for a few seconds. Repeat at least 5-7 minutes.
