Tension-type headaches (TTH) are a very common condition. The most recent theories on TTH occurrences suggest that a myofascial component, through trigger points (TP), gives rise to pain signals from the periphery to the central nervous system (CNS). These nociception could lead to CNS sensitization and headaches. Studies show that identification and treatment of TP is a valid therapeutic option for TTH. Amongst the treatment techniques, dry needling (DN) and ischemic compression (IC) seem to be the most effective. These technics can be easily acquired and applied by any doctor.
