Fear No More The Painful Trigger Points

 

Everyone has heard of trigger points. Whether you are a sports figure or a grandmother – trigger points are one thing in the human body that can bring you a great deal of pain in literally seconds. These are major hyper-irritable spots found in every human being’s skeletal muscle; taut bands of muscles that create unexplainable agony.

Medical practitioners throughout history have studied, researched and have come to identify these particular areas and the ‘patterns of pain’ that are released by each one. If pulled or compressed, these trigger points can do many things. They may begin with a muscleMassage LuXe  3 twitch or simply explode in pain that is far worse than a muscle spasm. And the only thing that seems to alleviate trigger points comes in the form of massage therapy.

The ‘massage’ facet of the medical world is now being seen as the rehabilitation avenue for trigger points. Experts from all areas – osteopathic to chiropractic medicine – are sending their patients to massage experts for help.

In addition, it’s no longer a secret that osteoporosis is a painful illness that over 60% of humans are suffering from as they reach their Golden Years, which is making them anything but ‘golden.’ And the muscles being broken down, allowing trigger points to become even worse, has made massage therapy become one of the highest-rated forms of aid there is to treat this particular condition.

Make no mistake, trigger points are the enemy when it comes to skeletal issues. From the categories of potential to active to latent, what many are most surprised by is the fact that there are more than 600 potential trigger points that are possible within the human body. They always appear in the same places in absolutely every person which means that pain can be diagnosed when it comes to these trigger points both quickly and accurately.

An active trigger is one that creates pain and transfers that pain along nerve pathways. Whereas a latent trigger is one that exists but does not yet create pain in the muscles and nerves. In fact, it is basically just lying in wait for when pressure or strain is applied to the area. Latent trigger points, although not painful immediately, do have the ability to bring about poor muscle coordination as well as balance issues – so they still cause problems!

Anything can cause a trigger point to be activated; acute muscle overload, activation by other trigger points, psychological distress, trauma from an accident, infections and more. These trigger points will form only in muscles, however these little bundles can actually pull on tendons and ligaments associated with the muscle causing deep, intense pain within a joint.

With all of this information already written in stone, so to speak, it is a blessing that massage treatment has evolved to include all styles of therapy and muscle energy techniques. But as with all things in life, an expert is needed with a high skill level so that these trigger points can be taken care of and relief can be found. The staff at MassageLuXe knows that if trigger points are pressed for too short a time, they may activate or remain active; if pressed too long, they may become irritated which results in more pain. Therefore, MassageLuXe is the one to head to in order to get the job done correctly and be able to live your life in a more pain-free way.

So when your doctor, chiropractor – anyone who is watching out for your health and well-being discusses the power of trigger points and how to alleviate the pain, head to MassageLuXe to feel better!
