  1. 1. “The Number One (#1) Cause of Pain Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About!” by Perry Nickelston, DC, FMS, SFMAEver wonder what can be done to help headaches, neck stiffness, carpal tunnel typesymptoms, tennis elbow, bursitis, frozen shoulder, back pain, low back stiffness,sciatica, shin splints? Find a Doctor that is skilled with finding and treating trigger pointsand you just might find immediate relief for pain that has been afflicting you for years.Trigger points are accumulations of waste products around a nerve receptor. Often timesthey feel like nodules or taut bands of fibers within the soft tissues. Trigger points formin muscles that have been overused, injured due to an accident or surgery. Commoncharacteristics are increased muscle tension and muscle shortening. Increased muscletension is the primary side effect of trigger points and pain is the most commonsecondary effect.Trigger points can present themselves as referred patterns of sensation (pain thattravels away from the trigger points) such as sharp pain, dull ache, tingling, pins andneedles, hot or cold, as well as can create symptoms such as nausea, ear ache,equilibrium disturbance, or blurred vision. Trigger points can exist in two states, eitheractive or latent. Active trigger points are those that cause discomfort. Latent triggerpoints wait silently in the muscle for a future stress to activate them. Aches and painswhich began in the past become more frequent and severe in intensity as we age. It iscommon to attribute this discomfort to arthritis instead of our tight muscles whichharbor trigger points. Trigger points are not visible with traditional medical testing such as MRI or X-ray and are frequently over looked by most healthcare practitioners as the cause of your pain.80% of the trigger point locations are common with acupuncture treatment locations.When trigger points are not treated, they will create satellite trigger points in theaffected area.

The trigger point in the shoulder blade isthe most common cause of shoulder pain, especially when exercising. And, voilà! - acase of shoulder Rotator Cuff Syndrome.

Determining which “muscle knot” is the one causing the pain is where the specialty comes into play. Not all knots cause pain. That’s why traditional massages usually DO NOT work.Trigger point massage is not a relaxing, "fluff and buff" technique. It requires theparticipation of the client to communicate the presence and intensity of pain anddiscomfort. The doctor and patient work together as a team to maximize theeffectiveness of the treatment to ensure long-term relief. It is common to find greatimprovement after one treatment. Repeated treatment may be necessary for thosewith chronic trigger points. Stretching should be done as "home work" to encourage themuscles that have been treated to stay in a lengthened position. One reason why people may not have improved with traditional medicine, physical therapy or chiropractic is because these trigger points were neverreleased before treatment began. You cannot stretch, exercise, or rest away atrigger point. It must be actively removed by specialized treatment before any other type of therapy will help.Research lists nutritional deficiencies or inadequacies as "perpetuating factors." A goodmulti-vitamin supplement that is high in anti-oxidants and is in an encapsulated formcan help ensure that once treated, trigger points do not reform Have given up hope?
