Tension Type HA: Once a diagnosis of tension type headache has been made, effective management involves three specific strategies: 1) patient education, 2) nonpharmacological management, and 3) pharmacological (medical) management. See an orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation and professional TTH management.
