Triggerstick Portable Pain Reliever
Infamously known to most people as a KNOT!! Trigger points are hyper irritable spots in muscles and are responsible for a large variety of aches and pains all over the body. These spots are associated with nodules that can be "palpated" or felt in the affected muscles. These spots can either be "latent", and produce pain and discomfort in a localized area around the trigger point, or they can be "active" and refer pain and discomfort into other areas of the body. Trigger points are caused by a whole host of factors and include stress, poor posture, long hours in front of a computer, middle to long distance driving and certain sports that place strain on muscles.
How do we get rid of trigger points?
One very effective way of getting rid of trigger points is by lschemic Compression. lschemic compression can be defined as the application of slowly increasing, non-painful pressure over a trigger point until a barrier of tissue resistance is felt. Contact is then maintained until the tissue barrier releases, and pressure is increased to reach a new barrier to eliminate the tenderness as well as the tension in the trigger point. (Travell, Simons and Simons 1999 1:8). In essence what this means is that we need to apply pressure to the tender nodules in our muscles.
How do I use the triggerstick?
The triggerstick allows you to reach the trigger points in some of the most hard to reach muscles in the body. The back is home to many muscles that work day in and day out to allow us to perform our daily activities. Once you have located the trigger point that you would like to treat pressure needs to be applied to the trigger point, to a point where a mild discomfort is felt. Once the mild discomfort eases after a few seconds, pressure needs to be increased gradually to the point where the mild discomfort returns. After repeating this process a number of times the tension as well as the pain caused by that trigger point may start to dissipate.This process can be repeated several times throughout the day on several trigger points for maximum results.
