Skull Headache

When most people think of a skull, they think of something scary.  In all reality, this is a rather erroneous view of how a skull really looks and functions in real life.  In the first place, the skull is literally covered with a thin Fascia-like tendon called an APONEUROSIS. This is significant because most people — even practitioners who do not discount the role of Fascia and other Connective Tissues IN PATHOLOGICAL PROCESSES — tend to ignore this area of the body. 

Because most Fascia (excepting the PLANATAR FASCIA and maybe the THORACOLUMBAR FASCIA) do not show up with even the most technologically advanced imaging techniques such as MRI (HERE), Fascia-based problems tend to go largely unrecognized — even though they are the root cause of a vast array of CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROMES.  In fact, when I looked at the website of the American Academy of Pain Management, they had this to say concerning pain based in (or at least perceived) in the skull. 

When asked about four common types of pain, respondents of a National Institute of Health Statistics survey indicated that low back pain was the most common (27%), followed by severe headache or migraine pain (15%), neck pain (15%) and facial ache or pain (4%)“. 

Stop!  Did you catch that?  A whopping four percent of the 100,000,000 Americans with CHRONIC PAIN have FACE PAIN.  Folks, this is four million people that are likely being treated with all sorts of drugs (including psyche drugs and ANTIDEPRESSANTS)!  For many of you, there is a better way — a much better way that actually addresses the underlying cause(s) of your pain instead of simply attempting to mask it.  By the way, the picture below right shows the little-known muscle, the PLATYSMA, quite well.

FASCIAL ADHESIONS caused by CAR WRECKS, SPORTS INJURIES, horse accidents, fights, abuse, or any one of hundreds of other reasons, can wreak havoc on people’s ability to function and have any sort of quality of life.  If you suspect you have Skull Pain as opposed to CHRONIC HEADACHES, contact us today. 

You can also learn more by reading our PATIENT TESTIMONIAL PAGE.  Be sure to read Sandra Summers testimonial.  She had her scalp torn off in a seven (7) end-over-end MVA that required between four and five hundred stitches to re-attach.  Just read the testimonial.  For more posts on Skull Pain, you can go HERE or HERE.
