Stress, headaches, tension and depression are unfortunately common in modern life – and are usually deeply interconnected.
There can be purely physical causes of headaches. Migraine headaches, in particular, are often associated with specific chemical imbalances including hormonal changes, chemicals contained in particular foods, and medications like oral contraceptives and vaso-dilators such as nitroglycerin.
Similarly, what are often termed "secondary headaches" are generally the result of an underlying structural problem or problems in the head and / or neck.
But studies have shown that the vast majority of headaches are related to tension and stress, with as many as 90% of us having experienced what are termed "tension" headaches, which occur more frequently among women than men. Despite the fact that tension headaches are the most prevalent type of headache, there is no consensus on their exact cause and mechanism of expression.
What is generally accepted, however, is that tension headaches occur as the result of stress.
Physical stressors that can trigger headaches can include ubiquitous modern activities like sitting at a desk or computer concentrating on the screen for extended periods of time. Emotional stress is also closely associated with tension headaches.
The unfortunate reality is that modern life provides ample triggers for tension headaches, and often a viscous circle forms: stress triggers headaches; headaches amplify stress; chronic headaches become a component of depression which leads to more stress, more headaches and deeper depression.
Whether migraines or tension headaches, conventional medical treatments for headaches, stress and depression are almost always pharmaceutical based – over the counter analgesic medicines like aspirin or ibuprofen (or much stronger medications prescribed by a doctor) that attempt to deaden the pain of headaches, or mood altering / enhancing prescriptions for depression and stress.
Sometimes analgesics and mood altering drugs are effective, sometimes they aren't – but whether these pharmaceuticals work or not they are always invasive in that these drugs circulate throughout the body and often have unpleasant systemic side effects.
SCENAR can help break the cycle of stress / headache / depression with non-invasive electrotherapy!
SCENAR treatment for headaches, stress and tension utilize the intelligent and targeted electrical impulses of the device to stimulate C-fiber nerves directly over the tightly woven muscles in the forehead where headaches first manifest themselves.
Successive signals are only transmitted after the device has recorded and analyzed the body's response to the previous signal – as expressed in the measurable electrical properties of the skin – and the following impulse is designed to enable maximum stimulation of the immune system and relax tense muscles.
This non-invasive biofeedback electrotherapy approach to headache management has proven effective in countless cases – with patients often reporting therapeutic benefits immediately – and the benefits of SCENAR treatments for stress and tension are widely reported even by patients receiving treatments for unrelated joint pain!
