Pankaj Kumar Sharma*

ABSTRACT

Tension Headache is very common type of headache with a lifetime prevalence in the general population, and it has a very high socioeconomic impact. Tension Headache also known as Tension Type Headache which is type of primary headache. Although this type of headache was previously considered to be primarily psychogenic, Headache is a common public health problem and one of the most frequent reasons for visits to general practitioners and neurologists which place a great strain on the quality of life of people of all ages and countries. Tension-Type Headaches account for nearly 90% of all headaches. Tension Headaches affect about 1.4 billion people (20.8% of the population). There is no satisfactory treatment available in modern medicine Moreover, the management of headache disorders represents a drain on national health systems and results in significant socioeconomic costs (reduced or lost productivity). Tension-Type Headache is classified into three subtypes according to headache frequency. It is characterized by recurrent episodes of Headache lasting from few minutes to a week where in pain is typically pressing or tightening in quality, mild to moderate in intensity, and bilateral in nature in the head, neck and behind eyes. Ayurveda is a philosophy of life with holistic approach which plays an important role in prevention of tension headache. Though headache is the hallmark symptom of the Shirorogas, but most of the symptoms of Tension Type Headache show some correlation with Vatik Shirashool. The main objective of the study to evaluate the causes of Tension type headache, examines the contributing factors and some conceptual approaches of Ayurveda for the treatment of Tension Type Headache.

Keywords: Headache, Shirashool, Shiroroga, Tension Type Headace.
