in any number of regions of the spine from the coccyx
to the cervical vertebrae

within the fibres of the muscles, giving rise to the "trigger-point

For example whiplash in the facial muscles around the neck can result in pain across the shoulder blades and the lumbar region.
The injury can be treated with a combination of heat therapy, interferential therapy, intrasound therapy and deep tissue massage.
