The pain in the upper trapezius is one of the most common complaints that I treat daily in my practice. Patients usually complain of headaches with pain on the side of their head and behind the eyes and pain at the base of their neck. This pain can be dull, achy, sharp, and/or annoying! There is also a decrease in range of motion due to the pain. This is the pain referral pattern for the upper trapezius.
A recent study suggests that not only are trigger points, and the pain associated with them are decreased by needling, but overall function and mood are also improved.
