Trigger Point Therapy for Headaches

About the Course
The vast majority, of commonly reoccurring headaches are of muscular origin. Current research will be presented, using a full-color power-point presentation on trigger point development and referred pain patterns, showing the contribution of an active TP to the typical headache experience. This course will itemize all muscles that contribute a referred pain pattern to the head, face, and jaw. Trigger Point development will be explained and demonstrated using a 3D model of a sarcomere, the contractile unit of a muscle. Migraine headaches will receive special attention and, also what differentiates a migraine from any other type of headache. Each muscle has its own unique and documented pain pattern. Multiple, active TP’s at the same time can produce wide ranging and sometimes overlapping symptoms. Treatment protocols will be demonstrated. After this class, each attendee will be able to specialize in the treatment of muscular related headaches for a more successful office practice.
