Headaches can be debilitating.  At the Centeno-Schultz Clinic we are experts at evaluating and treating head and neck pain.  Muscle dysfunction can be a major source of head pain and requires evaluation.  Tight, dysfunctional muscles in the shoulders and cervical spine often give rise to head pain.  In a previous blog I discussed referred pain.  Referred pain is a term used to describe the phenomenon of pain perceived at a site adjacent to or at a site away from the site of injury’s origin.

Tight, poorly functional muscles give rise to a pain in common referral patterns.  The trapezius and splenius capitus muscle are responsible for referred pain into the head as  illustrated below:

Treatment for muscle dysfunction is aimed at restoring  normal function through IMS and strengthening through MCU.
