A Trigger Point is an area of elevated neurological activity located in fascia and the bellies of muscles that may refer pain in a localized or peripheral manner. Trigger Points occur when a muscle is in constant contraction from how you hold yourself. Generally, stiff holding patterns occur in the shoulders due to daily stress. These holding patterns go undetected to our conscious state because they are so slight that the contraction is on the fibril level of the entire muscle.
If one fiber begins fatiguing, it will spasm and if it is wrapped around a nerve, the effect is wretched. When a trigger point is active, it can cause a substantial increase in a client‚Äôs myofascial pain locally or, in what seems to be a totally unrelated area of the body. Many people get shooting pains down either arm or up the neck. Also, this may produce numbing in the fingers, migraines, or even simply, a sharp, annoying pain in any specific area that prevents movement. If left untreated, a Trigger Point can prevent muscles from fully healing and ultimately have adverse long-term effects on other systems.
This pressure therapy will be combined with teaching of body awareness and Trager therapy, an oscillation treatment designed to rid the body of holding patterns. This is treatable. Trigger points can last years without treatment. Typically 5-6 treatments will rid you of the full onslaught of pain, but this too depends on how long you have had the condition.
