Trigger points in many neck and upper back muscles can refer pain to the head. The pain pattern sometimes indicates trigger points in the face, mouth or skull. CranioSacral Therapy is also used for these conditions.
It is also worth noting that 90% of headaches are caused by dehydration, so the minute you feel a headache coming on, grab a glass of water and drink it down in one go. Remember we should all be drinking at least 8 glasses of water or herbal tea per day to keep our bodies hydrated. Sometimes we mistakenly confuse thirst for hunger, so if you feel hungry, have a glass of water first!
