The Headache Hammock is a FDA registered orthopaedic traction headrest that is specifically designed to naturally relieve headaches and neck pain. Developed by a doctor it remedies headaches including migraines, as well as neck pain and muscle tension. It is patterned after a widely used therapy technique, the occipital lift. Practised by doctors and therapists for decades, this manoeuvre has been used clinically to release muscular tension held in the upper cervical region. Research has shown this muscular tension may be a leading cause of headaches, including migraines as well as neck pain. The patent pending design mimics this therapy enabling headache and neck pain sufferers to regularly and effectively treat their pain at home or while travelling. Why It Works: There are many different types of headaches ranging from tension headaches to migraine headaches. With each of these types there can be a common factor, upper cervical muscular tension. This muscular tension can cause restricted vertebra in the neck, inflammation and swelling of the joints of the upper cervical spine and surrounding muscular tissue. It can also lead to irritation of the nerves that supply the head and upper neck region leading to a variety of headaches as well as neck pain. The Headache Hammock can help relieve headache and neck pain by releasing this muscular tension using an occipital lift. By placing your head properly on the device, the specialised high density heatable or coolable foam will lift up the head and mobilise the back of the skull called the occiput, allowing the entire head to float free in space, while at the same time applying gentle pressure to the muscular tension in the upper neck. When this occurs, the muscular tension will relax and the head will settle into the hammock of the device. In many cases, both acute and chronic headaches as well as neck pain will improve rapidly and when used regularly the Headache Hammock may reduce headache and neck pain completely.
