Early research by myofascial pioneers, Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. David Simon, authors of "Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction, The Trigger Point Manual" indicate that acute trauma and/or repetitive micro-trauma to the muscle leads to the development of trigger points. They also believe that lack of exercise, prolonged poor posture, vitamin deficiencies, sleep disturbances, stress, infections, surgical injury and joint problems may all predispose us to the development of trigger points.
Acute trauma to the muscles can occur from things like auto accidents, falls or bike accidents. Micro-trauma comes from repetitive muscle overuse injuries from activities such as typing/mousing, handheld electronics use or any physical movement that is done over and over again.
That means that almost everyone has the potential to have some trigger points. When left untreated, trigger points can cascade into a chronic pain condition. Do you have untreated trigger points? Schedule your appointment today! 402-228-8955
