Trigger points are sensitive areas in your muscles, and are both a cause and a result of pain in the low back and elsewhere in the body. While the pain is usually not dangerous, meaning it is unlikely to cause serious harm, the day-to-day misery of headaches or a sore back isn’t something most people want to live with. Pain killers may provide temporary relief, but it’s not good to take them over an extended time. Plus, pain pills are just a temporary fix. Trigger point therapy can offer lasting relief from your trigger point pain.
Trigger points can be found just about anywhere in the body, from your head to your toes. Due to the modern scourge of sitting and staring at screens, they are frequently found in the back, shoulders and neck. Trigger points may be the initial cause of your pain, or they may be a result of an injury, and increase your pain. Worse, trigger points are crafty little things that can mimic the pain caused by other problems. For example, trigger points in neck muscles can cause things like ringing in the ears, toothache, or sinus problems. They can also cause pain in the shoulders or down the arms.
Trigger points in back muscles might cause pain anywhere from the middle of you back through the hips and into the thighs. You might have trouble walking or sitting. Trigger points can cause numbness or tingling down your legs, and make you think you have sciatica. Trigger point therapy alleviates the problems caused by trigger points in neck or low back muscles, and elsewhere by releasing these painful micro-cramps.
Neuromuscular massage therapy involves pressing and rubbing these trigger points which are already tender, so open communication with your therapist is a must. While it may sometimes feel uncomfortable, the discomfort should not pass the threshold to pain because you are likely to tense up, undoing the work you need. But whether trigger points are the cause, result, or complicating factor, trigger point therapy can help relieve your pain, often in a single session.
