Do you have signs and symptoms of a trigger point?
There are a number of ways that indicate the presence of trigger points. You may experience:
-Weakness in specific muscles
-Stretching causes you pain
- Muscles feel coarse, ropy, or knotty
- Deep tenderness and/or parasthesia (i.e., numbness, pins and needles, tingling, and/or hypersensitivity)
If you recognize one or more of these it could be a trigger point causing you a tender neck and shoulder.
What is a trigger point?
Recognizing that your tender neck and shoulders is caused by a trigger point is important to resolving your discomfort or pain. Trigger points are fibers of a muscle that are unable to release and are effectively "stuck" together.
Once the trigger points are located, the tender ares will be treated to promote structural change and balance in the muscles and posture. There is a slight discomfort that arises in treating the local area with direct pressure. In addition, the slow constant pressure causes the release of endorphins and enkephalins, which are morphine like substances that the body uses to mitigate pain and relax muscles.
Massage therapists at Precision Massage Therapy are highly educated and skilled in identifying these areas and help the stuck fibers separate and relax.
