If you often feel pain in your neck, back or elsewhere but cannot figure out the cause of the problem, trigger points may be the culprit. Trigger points are tiny, painful spasms in the muscle and they can cause stiffness, tingling and other sensations, not just at the site of the trigger point, but all over the body. Trigger points are not well understood by the medical community, so if you’ve searched in vain for a solution to your back pain, look no further. Neuromuscular massage can free you from trigger point pain.
A primary trigger point is a place where the pain starts, but left untreated other trigger points may develop, including satellite trigger points. A satellite trigger point, as the name implies, happens close to the primary trigger point, usually in the same muscle or in the ones nearby. Satellite trigger points may occur as a result of overuse or inactivity.
For example, if your job involves a lot of sitting in front of a computer, you might develop trigger points in neck muscles from poor posture, leaning forward, or just from staring at the screen for too long. Satellite trigger points can cause a whole series of painful spots throughout the neck, up into your head and even down the arms. Too much sitting can also cause trigger points in low back muscles, sending pain through the back, hips, and down into the legs.
Sometimes a structural problem, such as scoliosis, may cause multiple primary trigger points. This in turn can create multiple satellite trigger points, resulting in pain over an entire section of the body. When this happens, it is what is called diffuse trigger points. Satellite trigger points often resolve once the primary trigger points are released, but sometimes the satellites must also be treated in order to get complete relief.
The therapists at Massage Revolution’s Back and Neck Relief Center are specially trained in trigger point therapy. We know how to find trigger points, whether primary, satellite or diffuse, and release them, often in a single session. Give neuromuscular massage a try and you could be pain-free today.
