Chronic pain is but one of several reasons you might find massage therapy. Still, as more and more health professionals start valuing the role massage therapy can play in helping people deal with conditions that have pain as a major symptom, you might looking to massage therapy for some relief.
And knowing ways you can get help is going to be key.
Trigger points can be implicated in a wide range of common conditions that involve chronic pain, including sciatica, plantar fasciitis, low back pain, trigger finger and frozen shoulder, to name a few.
When people are alleviated of their pain and discomfort due to trigger points by use of pressure point therapy, they are often able to return to an increased activity level in life and are elated to feel pain free again. People often experience improved range of motion in their body, less or no tenderness to palpation of the trigger points, and improved quality of life. Deep tissue pressure point therapy is non-invasive and does not produce negative side effects; therefore, it is quite safe for the client. Pressure point therapy is a great option over medication-use or surgical intervention, and has a high outcome of success in reducing pain associated with trigger points and muscle tightness.
What are Trigger Points?
Trigger points are defined as “a focus of hyperirritability in a tissue that, when compressed, is locally tender and, if sufficiently hypersensitive, gives rise to referred pain and tenderness.”1 In other words: a trigger point is believed to be a localized spasm or knot in the muscle fiber that may cause pain to be referred to other, more distant parts of the body.
According to Steve Jurch, Director of Allied Health Training at the Community College of Baltimore County, USA, trigger points are typically caused by three types of muscle overload: acute, sustained and repetitive. “These types of muscle overload can occur in a variety of settings, including occupational and athletic settings, and can also result from underlying pathologies,” he explains.
When left untreated, many trigger points can lead to myofascial pain syndrome, which is a chronic muscle pain condition. Muscular pain is a leading complaint of many people, and can feel like a variety of sensations, such as: sharp, dull, constant, intermittent, and radiating pain. This muscular pain can often affect people in daily life and can cause dysfunction with work, social life, sleep and can be quite intrusive.
Quick checklist: classic trigger point symptoms
Although there are many causes of pain, confirming a trigger point diagnosis is simple enough for most people, most of the time. Check all that apply — if you have more than half of these, and no other apparent explanation for your pain, you probably have a trigger point or two.
- You have sore spots, sensitive to pressure, primarily in muscles. (Pain where tendons attached to joints is probably a different problem.16)
- Your pain is primarily dull, aching, and nagging.
- Your pain feels more like it’s in muscles than joints, and seems deep.
- Affected limbs may feel a little weak, heavy, and stiff.
- Your pain mainly occurs in a specific area with a fairly clear epicentre.
- There is no clear mechanism of injury, but flare-ups often occur in response to extremes of position, exercise, or temperature.
- Your pain is mostly (episodic), but episodes can last a long time (weeks or months).
- Your pain may move around a bit…even to the other side of your body! While uncommon, it’s a distinctive symptom of trigger points.
- You crave massage, but it usually provides only temporary relief.
- Hot showers and baths are also appealing and almost always at least briefly relieving.
- You usually feel better with activity and exercise.
- Your pain is not strongly or sharply linked to movement (as an ankle sprain would be).
Some examples of interesting referred pain of triggerpoint
Trigger points may explain many severe and strange aches and pains
Got a bizarre pain that just flared up one day? Sure, it might be something scary or rare. But in many cases it’s probably just a trigger point — about as serious as banging your funny bone. But it can feel worrisome.
This is where trigger points really get interesting. In addition to minor aches and pains, muscle pain often causes unusual symptoms in strange locations. For instance, many people diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome are actually experiencing pain caused by an armpit muscle (subscapularis). Seriously. I’m not making that up.
This odd phenomenon of pain spreading from a trigger point to another location is called “referred pain.” Here are some other examples of interesting referred pain leading to misdiagnosis
Trigger Point Referral and Sciatica
Sciatica :(shooting pain in the buttocks and legs) is often caused by pain in the piriformis or other gluteal muscles, and not by irritation of the sciatic nerve. Many other trigger points are mistaken for “some kind of nerve problem.” (And, some kinds of nerve problems can be mistaken for trigger points!)
Trigger Point Referral and Headaches
Headaches :We have clients all the time who come in complaining of headaches. The most common thing we will do is look at their range of motion of their neck and upper back and check the tightness in the muscles of their neck and shoulders.
If you have a look at the one of diagrams these are an example of why!
Your Sternocleidomastoid(SCM). The big chunky muscle on the front of your neck that pops out when you turn your head refers to your forehead.
By releasing these muscles we can often significantly decrease headaches for our clients.
Trigger Point Referral and Shoulder Pain
Shoulder Pain :Do you ever experience pain in the front of your shoulder? Sometimes your infraspinatus (a muscle on the back of your arm) or your Subscapularis ( a muscle that sits on the inside of your shoulder blade) can cause you pain at the front of your shoulder as well as some radiation down your arm. When you look at the referral pattern of both muscles below it is easy to understand why your remedial massage therapist will look at these muscles when you complain of anterior (front) shoulder pain.
How Triggerpoint therapy can Help
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of massage therapy is that it’s noninvasive and fairly easily tolerated by the client. Second, is that other forms of treatment may not address all of the necessary areas. Meaning, again, that some of your clients may be feeling pain in one area whose source is actually in another. A trigger point therapist can understand the relationship between each of the muscles that have an impact on a joint. Knowing which muscle needs to be released first in order for subsequent muscles to be effectively treated is immensely helpful.
The technique of using pressure point therapy is often very effective in treating trigger points. This technique involves skilled palpation to find the trigger point, and then application of a certain amount of pressure for a given amount of time until the trigger point “releases.” The client may feel discomfort initially when the trigger point is palpated and may even exhibit a twitch response or what may seem like an exaggerated pain response due to discomfort. Because referred pain is often common, the client may even notice an initial increase in pain in other parts of the body related to that particular trigger point. As deep tissue pressure point therapy technique is applied, the client will experience less pain and the therapist may notice that the trigger point feels less tight or smaller in size.
While doing this work, clearly communicating with our clients is imperative, as they may experience some pain and they need to be able to adjust pressure when necessary. “ trigger point therapy can be uncomfortable while applying the direct pressure on the trigger point the clients week.
But no problem. if the pain is not tolerable so the therapists can adjust thier pressure.
