Dry needling is a very effective way in reducing tension to the neck muscles and even reducing headache pain. While this does not address the underlying cause of where the headache pain is coming from it can be a very effective tool. When you feel the back of your head and neck muscles do they feel soft and supple? Or do they feel tight and painful? If you have continued tension at the base of your skull, even when you are relaxed, dry needling can be a very safe option for you. Symptoms to look for...
Headaches starting in the base of your skull
Tension to the neck that does not get better lying down
Related symptoms such as ear pressure/plugging or dizziness
