A headache generally starts because you are either stressed out, or you may have a pinched nerve or tightness in your neck and shoulder areas.
In the chiropractic world they call this a “subluxation” which basically means that your spine is out of alignment. When this happens, throbbing pain is sent up the spine causing a headache.
When your back, shoulders, neck, and spine are sore or out of alignment, the result is a headache. If you can afford it, you definitely want to get a massage and see a chiropractor.
But for some of us, getting a massage can be too expensive. The good news is that there is a great product on the market that is called the Thera Cane.
The Thera Cane is a self-massage tool that allows you to pinpoint certain spots on your neck, shoulders, and back and get in there and do your own massage.
The great thing is that you do NOT have to be strong to get great use from it. You literally find a spot on your neck, back, and shoulders and add a little pressure and this will help release it.
Is it as good as getting a real massage?
Yes and no.
A real massage allows you to just lay down while someone does all the work.
But, a massage therapist sometimes won’t spend as much time as you want in a certain area and they can be VERY expensive. This product is a little less than $40.
