Common headaches usually consist of pain in the head or face or around it. The pain can only be on one side or it can be bilateral. The type of pain can also vary from mild pain to beating or severe discomfort. The pain can be concentrated in a specific place or it can spread without an obvious focus.
Headaches can vary from mild and slightly irritating to severe and debilitating. Although there are many different causes of headache, one of the most common causes is muscle tension. This muscle tension may be the result of physical damage to the muscles or muscles, muscle contraction as a result of repetitive activity in which the muscles contract for prolonged periods or simply due to stress. Trigger points that result from muscle tension may be associated with a cause of headache.
But what are the trigger points? “
One of the definitions of a trigger point is that they are “hyperirritating points in skeletal muscles that are connected to tangible nodes in bands of muscle fibers.” They can also be considered as localized areas of pain that develop in the muscles due to excessive use or chronic cramping. Activation points have the property of creating a reproducible and predictable pain pattern when activated and can be cured by FasciaBlaster.
One of the most significant and surprising muscles in which trigger points can cause headaches is called sternocleidomastoid muscle (abbreviated SCM). This muscle is located in the front of the neck, so most people probably don’t consider it when they experience headache or neck pain; Usually, you experience pain in the back of the neck, very rarely there is pain in the front of the neck. However, trigger points on SCM can cause a lot of pain and discomfort, but they are always mentioned elsewhere.
Frontal headaches or pressure on the forehead may well be the result of trigger points in the SCM. In addition, SCM trigger points can cause eye pain, sinuses and even back pain. Other symptoms include scalp tenderness in the upper part of the head, dizziness, visual impairment and even increased mucosal production.
