Chronic pain is pain that goes on for weeks, months, or even years. Trigger points in neck and back muscles are sore or sensitive spots in the body that are implicated in a number of common chronic pain complaints including low back pain, neck pain, migraines, frozen shoulder and sciatica to name just a few. And neuromuscular massage utilizes trigger point therapy to give you lasting relief.
When you’re injured, your nerves send a signal to your brain to let you know there is a problem. This is known as acute pain and it usually goes away within a short amount of time. Chronic pain is different. It sticks around. Some 100,000 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, and 1 out of 10 have experienced pain that lasts for 3 or more months. Worldwide, over 1.5 billion people suffer from chronic pain. And trigger point massage therapy is a great solution.
Chronic low back pain is the most common complaint, followed by headaches and migraines, then neck pain. More than three-quarters of those people report feeling depressed due to their chronic pain, and 1 person out of 5 says the pain disturbs their sleep at least a few nights a week. Over half of Americans who suffer from chronic pain say that they feel they have little to no control over the problem. The good news is you do have the power to do something about your chronic pain, and it doesn’t involve drugs or surgery.
There are several trigger points in neck and back muscles that contribute to these problems. The pain may stay local, meaning you feel pain right under the trigger point, or it may refer, meaning you feel it elsewhere, such as pain that radiates up into your head or down to your legs. Neuromuscular massage and trigger point therapy release the muscles and alleviate the problem, even if the condition has gone on for some time.
Many people experience relief after a single treatment of neuromuscular massage or trigger point therapy. While for some one session is all they need, others may find that regular appointments help to manage pain and stress due to their lifestyle, work or stress load. The massage and bodyworkers at Massage Revolution have been specially trained in trigger point therapy. We want to help you free yourself from chronic pain.
