Best Neuromuscular Trigger Point Massages for Back Pain Bending or Twisting:If You Twist and Shout…in Pain, It Could Be This Muscle.
If your back is often stiff, and bending or twisting causes twinges of pain that make you want to yelp, there are quite a few potential causes. If you’ve gone through a normal regimen of standard doctor’s orders, and it hasn’t helped to any noticeable degree, a study from the University of Westminster suggests that the problem could be a number of trigger points in the erector spinae — the muscles that help you back to vertical after you’ve bent at the middle. Trigger points in these muscles tend to stack in bunches, and the pain often appears most strongly as you bend or twist. Talk to a neuromuscular/trigger point massage therapist about having any trigger points along your spine released — there’s a significantly good chance that it will help.

Pain Management Los Angeles: Trigger Point Pain Linked to Childhood Migraines.
Past research has demonstrated that dysfunction in your neck may contribute to the migraine headache process. In this study, researchers applied hands-on pressure to trigger points and non- trigger points in the trapezius muscle of 26 early adolescents with a history of migraine pain. Half of the people experienced a migraine headache when pressure was applied to a trigger point and none reported a migraine when researchers targeted a non- trigger point on the same muscle. The findings indicate that treatment aimed at releasing trigger points in the neck and upper back may decrease the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches. Neuromuscular Massage Therapists commonly treat trigger points with manual therapy techniques.

Health Alert (The best massage center in los angeles): Working the Night Shift May Increase Your Waistline.
An in-depth review of 28 studies revealed that, on average, routinely working a night shift increases the risk of being overweight or obese by 29%. Connie Diekman, the director of university nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis, believes that sleep disruption is to blame because it affects eating habits and metabolism. She explains, “When people are awake when they should be sleeping, the hormones related to hunger and satiety appear to be thrown off, resulting in changes in eating, changes in metabolism, and a tendency to eat more than we need.” The findings should raise concerns, as 20% of the global workforce currently works at night.

Exercise: How to Keep Running During Colder Months.
When cold weather approaches, you don’t have to give up jogging or head indoors to run on a treadmill. To keep your outdoor running on track in the chillier months, the American Podiatric Medical Association recommends the following: wear warm, light-weight, moisture-wicking clothing to keep yourself warm and dry, including a hat and gloves; shorten your running stride to increase stability and help prevent slipping on icy roads or sidewalks; stretch before and after each run to make sure your muscles are warmed up; and wear warmer appropriate running shoes that fit properly.

Wellness/Prevention: Risk Factors for Sepsis.
Bloodstream infections, known as sepsis, claim the lives of six million people worldwide each year. To determine risk factors for this condition, Norwegian researchers reviewed records of nearly 2,000 sepsis patients and found that smoking, obesity, and an inactive lifestyle are a significant threat for blood poisoning. When these factors are combined, individuals face nearly a five-times greater risk of sepsis than their non-smoking, normal-weight, and active peers.
