You may have heard of the term Trigger point massage therapy before, perhaps you have not. You are certainly interested in what that is in either case now. Trigger Points are small muscle stiffness areas (around the size of a pea or mustard seed). These are the product of the tiny knots of contraction that form in the muscle and tissue when a part of the body is injured or overworked. Trigger Points are something most typical doctors’ neglect, but they might be the one thing that has been ignored for several years, if not decades, in your case. A characteristic of these frustrating points is so-called “referred” pain.
Which means they usually send their pain to some other position in the body, which is often the reason why conventional pain therapies fail. Most healthcare professionals mistakenly assume that the problem lies where the pain is and are therefore unable to accurately assess the body to get to the cause behind the pain.
Trigger points can occur as a result of muscle trauma, muscle strain from repetitive on – the-job or playing movements, postural strain from standing or sitting inappropriately on the computer for prolonged periods, emotional stress, anxiety, allergies, nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, and environmental toxins.
Headaches, neck and jaw pain, low back pain, sciatica, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome may be caused by trigger points-you name it. These are the cause of joint pain in the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and the ankle usually associated with arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, or damage to the ligament. Many of these unpleasant effects can be diminished or prevented by a professional Trigger Point Massage Therapist Brisbane with proper long-term therapy.
Only one incident may cause a trigger point, and if that point is not addressed properly, you will suffer the effects during your lifetime. The instinctive reaction the body makes to a dangerous “case” is to defend itself. It does this by altering the way you walk, sit or stand, which in effect puts undue stress on your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. It, along with postural dysfunctions in the body, creates strength and endurance imbalances in your muscles.
Simply rubbing the skin’s surface with a massage lotion, a vibrating massage therapist or using heat will not harm a single point’s tissue. What it requires is ample deep continuous force to the “knotted-up region.” This stimulation of the deep tissue is known as Trigger Point Massage Therapy Brisbane. When you stimulate the small points the body will go through the release of soft tissue, making it possible to increase blood circulation, reduce muscle spasm, and break up scar tissue as well. It will also help remove any accumulation of harmful metabolic waste. The time it will take to trigger a point will depend on a number of variables, one of which is how long you have had your Trigger Points.
Certain considerations include the number of points you have, how effective the current care is and how reliably medication can be delivered or obtained. Your Trigger Point Massage Therapist Brisbane will help you set the best plan to get the maximum benefit for your treatments. The body will also experience a neural relaxation, through the brain pain signals and re-establishing the neuromuscular system to restore its proper function. Which means, everything will work the way it should again.
