AdvaCare Clinics in Bloomington, MN: Headache Symptom Relief

Headaches, including migraine, tension and cluster headaches are one of the most prevalent and debilitating medical conditions and among the top 10 causes of disability with an impact similar to arthritis and diabetes.  Nearly forty-five million Americans suffer from chronic and recurring headaches.

Ninety percent of these headaches occur because of referred pain from myofascial trigger points.

Myofascial trigger point pain:

  • Does not follow typical patterns
  • May feel like something else
  • Mimic many other problems

Myofascial trigger points of the scalp, jaw, neck, shoulders and upper back refer pain to the head, face, and ear. These trigger points in the muscles under the back of the skull radiate pain to the back of the head, and around to the forehead.

Myofascial trigger points in other muscles in the back of the neck cause a slightly different pain pattern. Myofascial trigger points in the muscles of the scalp and forehead cause pain in other areas of the head.

Trigger point therapy is an option that can stop or greatly reduce the occurrence of headaches, even for the most difficult cases.

Trigger point therapy includes:

  • Trigger point injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic help

Trigger points can cause recurrent pain and inactivity, and can significantly lower your quality of life. Fortunately, the doctors at AdvaCare Clinic understand the burden of living with pain and are highly experienced in the treatment of pain syndromes.
