FEELING DIZZY? TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE CAN HELP
Trigger points are the cause behind pain in back and neck muscles.
But they are also the culprit behind many seemingly unrelated issues, including symptoms as wide-ranging as dizziness, blurred vision, chronic cough, sore throat, sinus congestion, and difficulty swallowing.
Trigger points are small areas of shortened muscle fibers.
Trigger points are tricky customers. They tend to fly under the radar of most doctors.
Trigger points may be tiny, but they wreak havoc throughout the body.
Research shows that about 80% of muscle pain is caused by trigger points.
Trigger point therapy and neuromuscular massage were invented to deal with this incredibly common problem.
The trigger points that cause dizziness are located in the neck muscle called the SCM, short for sternocleidomastoid (which gets its complicated name from the bones it attaches to).
The SCM is also known as the ‘whiplash muscle’ because it often gets strained in a car accident.
But you do not need to be in a car accident to develop trigger points in the SCM.
The main job of the SCM is to turn the head and flex it down in a nodding motion. It stabilizes that 10-lb. bowling ball aka your head when the rest of the body moves. The SCM also assists with chewing, swallowing and breathing.
As you can see, the SCM is an important muscle. When things go wrong with it, many issues may arise.
As mentioned above, whiplash can cause trigger points to form in the SCM. But any time the head is held in an awkward position can lead to the formation of trigger points.
Staring at a screen whether it be a phone or computer counts as an awkward position.
Other things that stress the SCM include overhead work, heavy lifting, scoliosis, and shallow breathing.
Trigger points are also notorious for sending aka referring pain to other parts of the body. Trigger points in the SCM can cause headaches, migraines, and even make you break out in a cold sweat.
Most doctors don’t understand effective treatment for trigger points. Many are not even aware of their existence!
Drugs and surgery are standard go-tos, but they don’t get at the root of the problem.
The good news is that trigger point massage and neuromuscular therapy reset muscles to their normal resting length, freeing you from pain and discomfort, and putting an end to those troubling symptoms.
Just one session can be life changing. This is true even if you’ve had the problem for years.
Regularly-scheduled sessions are advisable to work on recurrent issues, such as when work or other activities cause extra stress on the neck and/or other parts of the body.
