Post-traumatic myofascial pain describes the majority of chronic head and neck pain seen in clinical practice. If conditions such as vascular headaches, neuropathic pain, degenerative cervical joint disease, and dental pain are excluded, myofascial tissues are directly or indirectly involved in all other forms of head and neck pain. The most common of these include temporomandibular disorders, neck pain such as whiplash-associated disorder, cervicogenic headaches, and tension-type headaches. The pathophysiology of these conditions is not widely understood; however, peripheral and central mechanisms appear to play a role.
