This is a collection of posts about trigger points that refer into the back of the head.
Remember that people usually feel only a portion of the pattern. Also, people usually feel the portion in darkest red but some only complain of the areas in lighter red.
These posts include:
- Trigger point patterns and how people describe the pain
- How you activate and intensify the pain pattern
- Self-care to show you how to get quick relief on your own
- Stretches and exercises that provide longer-lasting relief
- Brief anatomy review of the involved muscle
- Yoga poses that open this muscle
- Treatment notes for therapists
Note that we are in the process of converting these posts into a more informative and accessible format. Thank you for your patience.
This website is being revised, and some posts have not yet been converted to newer images and formats.
