“My back is killing me.”
If you’ve uttered this phrase or the thought has crossed your mind recently, you’re not alone. Pain is a serious problem. Somewhere between 50-100 million Americans suffer from some type of chronic pain, and about 25 million of those say they’re in pain on a daily basis. A whopping 80% of Americans will suffer from back pain at some point or other, and one out of every three adults say back pain has an impact on their everyday activities, including important stuff like sleep. The good news is that there is a drug-free, surgery-free way to get relief for your chronic back pain : trigger point massage .
While most of us have experienced back or neck pain, very few of us know what causes the problem. Stress, poor posture, a sedentary lifestyle, and injuries are common culprits, but a lesser known cause of back and neck pain are trigger points . Trigger points are tiny micro-cramps in the muscles. Sometimes, they’re a complication that happen following an injury. Other times, trigger points are the source of the problem. And plenty of times, they’re like the chicken-and-egg conundrum, a little bit of both.
Trigger points can cause pain anywhere, such as in back or neck muscles. This is called local pain, and it means you feel it right where the trigger point is located. Trigger points can also refer pain elsewhere, such as up into your head or down into your hips and legs. When you have a whole bunch of trigger points , this is called myofascial pain syndrome, or MPS.
Fibromyalgia is another common type of chronic pain. Some 10 million Americans have been diagnosed with the condition, but it is possible (and even probable) that the tender points doctors use to diagnose fibromyalgia may also be trigger points .
