Trigger points in the neck, headaches and Chiropractic

Neck pain and headaches are a common condition that causes people to seek Chiropractic care. Neck pain can often be referred to the back of the head and the area above the eyes. This type of headache is called a tension headache. One of the most common features of tension headaches is trigger points or tight and tender areas of the muscles of the neck. The most effective Chiropractic technique to treat trigger points in the neck is myofascial release. Acupuncture is also effective in treating painful muscles of the neck. Acupuncture combined with electronic stimulation of the trigger point can often break up the trigger point. Chiropractic adjustments can relieve pain in the joints of the neck which are also associated with pain referred into the head and face.
