Tightness in the head and neck fascia can cause pinching of the nerves in the neck that lead up into the head. This tightness is usually brought on by stress, fatigue or poor posture and is the leading cause of tension headaches.
A foam roller can be helpful in releasing myofascial adhesions and induces thoracic extension.
Knowing how to use a foam roller to relieve tension in your upper back, shoulders and neck can help reduce headache pain, especially if done before the head pain gets severe.
Try this foam roller routine next time you feel a headache coming on.
