Trigger point therapy is one of the fastest growing and most effective pain therapies in the world Medical doctors chiropractors physical therapists and massage therapists are all beginning to use this techniue to relieve patients formerly undiagnosable muscle and joint pain both conditions that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits This book addresses the problem of myofascial trigger pointstiny contraction knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked Restricted circulation and la This is a gold mine I have been using this manual since 2009 Trigger points came to my attention when I developed a tennis elbow I couldn't get rid of for nearly two years of various therapies and treatments I learned about TPs from the coach of the British Olympic sprint team My search lead me through multiple websites and eventually I got rid of the point in a minute It was so amazing that I though it was some sort of placebo effectThen I attended to a rotator cuff problem I had developed when a ski boarder pulled my arm when she couldn't control herself at very high speed That was also gone in less than an hour Multiple points had to be resolved and when I was done I was dancing on the ceiling But again I felt it was a fluke and didn't dare trying other TPs as I was afraid of losing my new religions if it stopped working Needless to say it never didLast year I discussed my years of experience with a neuroscientist who does cutting edge research at University of London I told him that in my view TPs don't get resolved because evolution has not provided us with the mechanism They are recorded in our minds and the mind has no way of knowing where the points are Yes our mind doesn't know where each part of our body is If you don't believe that try to feel where your middle toe is without wriggling it or touching it somewhere Worse try to feel the extent of your heart or stomach in fact any of the hundreds of muscle in your body You can't unless you flex them or touch them If you don't know it means you mind doesn't either It can send signals to their address but doesn't know exactly where they are It doesn't need to and that is the problem with fixing precise pain locationsWhen we press a trigger point we are showing our minds the location that needs to be repaired and that there is no reason for the location to remain taught The body knows how to release the knot but doesn't know where it is We have to show it and it is done That simple The memory of the trauma is wiped and the point is releasedMy neuroscientist friend felt it was a revelation Now he like me uses this manual to locate trigger points for the mind and show it that there is no reason to keep them going BTW we don't have an automatic system of resolving such points because evolution is very economical it doesn't develop a system unless it is crucial to our reproductive success As trigger points don't show up much until we are over the typical reproductive age there I no reason to resolve them automatically at very high energy and social cost But we have brains and we have found how this muscle saving mechanism results in TPs and how we can tell our minds to resolve them A great solution that only humans have developedI will be happy to share about my experiences Enough to say that at 67 I have managed to keep my muscle supple enough to reach the platinum level ski racing in NASTAR I am supple than when I was 40 This is very real in terms of science of the brain and evolutionAnecdotes Early in May '17 I stood in line to get some food at JFK on my way to work somewhere south Suddenly I had a feeling that my heart was palpitating with sparks of pain and tension What comes to mind first? 911 and a heart attack Well if you read the next anecdote you will know that I don't think medical help as my first resort But this was serious and the pain very unfamiliar I still didn't believe it would be a heart attack although the symptoms were nearly exactly what you read and hear about I started to breath deeply in an attempt to get enough oxygen etc Soon I felt like a fool succumbing to old tales of wow and panic I took our my massage ball with which I entertain myself on flights and found a half dozen TPs in the surface muscles around where my heart usually is Within minutes all the pulls pushes and bursts of pain and fear had gone T
