According to the US Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) such as carpal tunnel syndrome are the most common occupational health hazard in the nation. They affect hundreds of thousands of Americans, and cost an astonishing $20 billion each year in workers’ compensation. Whether or not these statistics surprise you, an even lesser known fact is that trigger points are often the culprit behind repetitive stress injuries. The good news is that trigger point massage therapy can relieve RSIs and break the cycle of carpal tunnel syndrome pain treatments and other pain, without resorting to surgery or drugs.
Tiny but hypersensitive, trigger points pack a punch. While they often appear in back and neck muscles, they can show up anywhere in the body. What makes trigger points even trickier is that you may not feel the pain at the site of the trigger point.
About two-thirds of work-related injuries and illnesses are a result of trauma to the upper body, which includes the back, shoulders, and arms. Carpal tunnel syndrome, golfer’s elbow and frozen shoulder are just a few examples of RSIs that are frequently caused by trigger points, but plenty of other problems occur as a result of trigger points in these areas, including issues as varied as allergy-like symptoms, irregular heartbeat and digestive woes.
A typical course of treatment for RSIs might include medication, physical therapy, surgery or a combination of the three, but before you sign up for anything drastic, you may want to give neuromuscular massage a try. Trigger point therapy may be exactly what you need because it goes to the source of the problem. Neuromuscular massage can not only relieve your RSI, it also helps to improve your range of motion, sleep quality, and overall quality of life.
Here at Massage Revolution’s Back & Neck Relief Center, we specialize in neuromuscular massage and trigger point therapy. Depending on your particular injury, one session may be all that it takes to solve your problem, but if your job requires repetitive motions, it might be a good idea to book regular sessions or get a membership to keep your body running on all cylinders.
