So the saying goes, ’tis the season to be jolly, but shorter days and year-end pressures to shop, attend parties and travel can all add to your stress level rather than relieve it. At this busy time of year, your back or neck might be letting you know they’ve had enough, and that they could use a little TLC. If you’re looking for an all-natural, drug-free way to alleviate your stress, you may want to consider trigger point massage therapy.
Stress can provoke all kinds of negative effects on the body, from headaches and muscle tension to anxiety and insomnia. Another thing prolonged periods of stress can do is cause or exacerbate trigger points. Trigger points are tiny cramps in the muscles that are extremely sensitive. It is estimated that 75% or more muscle aches and pains are due to trigger points.
Trigger points in back and neck muscles may be due to an injury such as a car accident or other trauma, but quite frequently they are the result of stress. This could be postural stress, such as from sitting in front of a computer screen for long hours or performing repetitive motions, and they can also appear as a result of mental or emotional stress. Poor eating habits are a different kind of stress, but they too can cause trigger points.
If tiny micro-cramps don’t sound like a big deal to you, think again. These little-known problem areas can interfere with the way you sit, stand and move, causing further stress on joints and organs, and adding up to dysfunction that you feel throughout your whole body. Headaches, low back pain, sciatica, ear aches, allergies, even digestive issues can all be caused by trigger points. So if popping pain relievers isn’t working or wasn’t your bag in the first place, you might want to give neuromuscular massage and trigger point therapy a try.
