Headache is defined as aching or pain in one or more areas of the head or neck. Both the frequency and pain level can vary greatly. About 90 percent of all headaches fall into three categories: tension headaches, migraines, and cluster headaches. The remaining 10 percent fall into the category of secondary headaches
Headaches and Trigger Points
When suffering from headaches, you may be diagnosed with general terms such as tension headache, migraine, or TMJ pain. But in most cases the true cause isn’t identified. And one of the most over looked cause is trigger points in one or more muscles, but most diagnosing practitioners are unfamiliar with trigger points. In fact, trigger points can play a very large role in most types of chronic and acute headaches, as well as temporomandibular joint problems (TMJ). This means you may be able to get a great deal of relief, or even complete relief, by working on trigger points and eliminating perpetuating factors.
