suboccipital muscle. Tightness in these muscles can cause pain in the back of the head and also headaches. If this has been going on for a while try using a hot pack in conjunction with the chiro adjustments. Also, using a
pain relieving gel like biofreeze can help work out the trigger points in that muscle. - NJ
