Trigger Point Injections Expert?

For many years now, I’ve suffered from headaches and vestibular symptoms (dizziness and at times more severe vertigo). I believe that these symptoms could be a result of trigger points in my neck and shoulders. Trying to find doctors who are experts at treating trigger points in these areas has been difficult. My question is: Has anyone found a doctor with some expertise in giving trigger point injections, particularly in the neck area, and was your treatment successful? I’m looking for a doctor in the Ohio area, but am finding it difficult to know which doctors have really been trained to perform these treatments, especially for those with migraine and dizziness symptoms.

I would like to find a doctor for this as well!  I live in Ohio.  I found great relief from a medical massage therapist.  They worked solely on my problem areas. I was in a car accident over 20 years ago and drove a good deal for work and this was a life saver.  I've also heard that an ENT can do alads manipulation for vertigo if you have cervical vertigo. I'd consider looking into this.  Ever tried acupuncture for trigger point issues?  I have been told that most of us who have had some type of accident or even just all people, have a 'spot' that will tighten up when stressed or fatigued.  I definitely do.  And I will get a terrible headache when it happens.  The spot of the headache is right behind one of my ears.  And the massage therapist showed me how it is all interrelated as it travels up my shoulder to my neck to that spot. It all just tightens if you will.  Stretching helps me a lot.
