Muscle-contraction headaches can be improved and/or eliminated in a surprisingly short amount of time. Migraine headaches often take longer to treat, but once the headache sufferer achieves voluntary control over muscle contraction and blood-flow constriction, relief from symptoms is often dramatic.
If you suffer from chronic headaches, learn how to lower your stress hormone levels and flush them out of your system. Stress hormones cause small muscle fibers to contract and spasm, and they also cause headache-triggering changes in blood flow.
