Chronic Headaches are treatable! Get help today with Dr. Shannon

Dr. Shannon has a unique procedure to treat these conditions. Using a very small needle, injections are given just under the skin to block the pain nerves over the trapezius muscle – this causes the muscle to relax and pressure is taken off the head where the muscle attaches. Trigger points are a common source of tension headaches. If found these to will be injected to expand the trigger point and stop them from generating pain. Typically, a series of 3 injections over 3 weeks are needed.
