There are points between the thumb and index finger (in the middle of that big mound of muscle) that is good for anything dealing with the head and neck. This goes for headaches, sorethroats, neckaches, toothaches, etc... Also for headaches, try the points between the bridge of the nose and the brow of the forhead. They're just superior and medial to the eyes or just below the middle most portion of the eyebrows. For back pains, try behind the knees.

What things can be done to ease a headache?

The best thing i have found is washing the head with HOT water. It eases a tension headache by relaxing the muscles and a migraine by dilating the blood vessels. Also, drinking a lot of cold water will help. Pills such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and Advil are what some call "sugar pills", though they do ease some pain, water does all the real stuff. Another way to ease a headache (but temporarily unless done properly) is finding pressure points. There are two that are known to work best: The thumb joint on the left hand, and the back of the neck. The thumb joint's pressure point is right on the skin that looks a bit like webbing on the upper half of your hand. The neck's pressure points are just under the skull at the top of your neck on the softest spots. Thumb Joint: Simply squeeze the pressure point for about 2 minutes, and slowly release the pressure. Your headache should almost instantly go away. Neck: (you may need someone to do this with you) have a scarf or bandanna (or something that wraps around something) and this will need to be snug against your forehead and tied/held in the back. Have a friend hold it for you. Then have your friend gently begin to push their thumbs onto the soft pressure points, then stay that way for about 30 to 50 seconds. The headache should slowly go away.

What does it mean when a patient has a positive rebound?

It means that a patient's symptom was treated successfully, but then later returns. So if you have a headache and you take some ibuprofen to get rid of it, then the headache comes back, it is said to be a rebound headache. Another possibility is pain that is felt upon removal of palpation pressure. So if your abdomen is being palpated, and if, when the pressure of palpation is removed, it is painful; you are said to have positive rebound.

What causes a throbbing headache?

A headache is caused by the swelling of blood veins/vessels in the head, obviously. This excessive swelling causes pressure on the brain since the swelling is above normal. In turn, the more dilated your blood vessels are, the more pressure there is inside your head. Which causes the headache. Now, everyone is familiar with the drug caffeine. Caffeine is actually very effective in releaving headache pain. This is because the dilated veins are constricted back to a normal size by the caffeine, in turn decreasing the effects of the headache. Hope this helps..
