Guys! I'm prepping for a presentation about acupuncture and trigger points and wanted to share some of this info with you all! So what exactly ARE are trigger points you ask?? Trigger points are those tight knots in your muscles that feel tender and possibly painful when you massage them. They reveal that a muscle has gone into "protection mode" or a holding pattern when your body sensed an imbalance happening. Some muscles overcompensate for others when there is a structural imbalance, injury or weakness. Normally this is temporary, but some of our walking, sitting and cell phone looking at habits set these overcompensation patterns into full ingrained ways of being. We don't want muscles getting trained to be in a protective holding pattern, so we work to release them back to their natural state. Also many muscles will have what is called a "Pain Referral Pattern" where the pain is felt in places other than where the tight muscle is. These referral patterns help us find where problem is. For example, a tight Illiopsoas muscle can feel like low back pain. If you look at the pictures posted, the dotted patterns in the picture show the referral patterns, while the X's mark where the common trigger points are in the muscles. Kinda cool, right?? How do you treat them?
We find trigger points in the muscle by palpating it until we find a tight & tender band. This area is the spot, that when activated, will prompt the muscle to spasm and release out of the holding pattern. Massage therapists do this by applying pressure to the trigger point area of the muscle to facilitate this release, while acupuncturists use a needle to facilitate the muscle release.
These trigger points were discovered by Dr. Janet Travell in the 1930’s and the photos come from her books “Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction the Trigger Points Manual.” Any questions you have about pain that you think might be trigger point related, I'd be happy to answer and treat 😊☯️💆‍♂️ Picture 1 muscle: Levator Scapula Picture 2 Muscle: Iliopsoas Picture 3 Muscle: Upper Trapezius Picture 4 Muscle: Piriformis

::Brachialis:: This muscle crosses the inner elbow attaching the upper arm to the forearm.
The brachialis muscle is the main flexor of the elbow.
Trigger points and dysfunction in this muscle can cause:
🔹Pain in shoulder 🔹Pain into the upper arm
🔹Pain around the elbow
🔹Weakness and pain into thumb
Activities that can cause pain and symptoms:
🔹Activities that impair the extensions of the elbow.
🔹Lifting heavy objects with your arm flexed 🔹Any activities requiring a pulling motion
🔹Pull ups, arm curls, chin ups, or rowing.

One of the most common ailments I see in the clinic are headaches, including tension, stress and migraines. Using trigger point therapy along the sternocleidomasoid muscles as well as some face, scalp and trap work can really benefit sufferers hugely. #headaches #migraines #triggerpoints #sternocleidomastoid #neck #head #shoulders #therapy #tensionheadaches #stress #pain #painrelief #massage #trigger #release

Przykład terapii mięśni prostowników grzbietu kręgosłupa lędźwiowego przy użyciu suchego igłowania. Igłoterapia stanowi dla mnie jeden z elementów lokalnej terapii tego regionu, która w połączeniu z dalszą pracą nad przywróceniem zakresów ruchów, odzyskaniu odpowiedniej długości tkanek miękkich, ruchomości stawów międzykręgowych, żeber i ogólnie całej klatki piersiowej, przepony, mobilności bioder, ma pozytywnie wpłynąć na wyrównanie globalnych wzorców napięciowych pacjenta. Zazwyczaj takie połączenie przynosi bardzo dobre efekty 👍😉 #dryneedling #sucheiglowanie #medicalacupuncture #medycznaakupunktura #erectorspinae #multifidus #rotatores #semispinalis #longissimus #iliocostalis #backpain #lowerbackpain #lumbarpain #lumbago #buttockpain #hippain #sacralpain #ribs #hipsmobility #diaphragm #rangeofmotion #triggerpoints #triggerpointstherapy #myofascialrelease #radiatingpain #referredpain #musclereferredpain #myofascialpain #physiotherapy #osteopathy

Triggerpointtherapie:

Regelmatig terugkerende hoofdpijn, maar ook nek-, schouder-, en rugpijn zijn lastige klachten die je in het dagelijks leven behoorlijk kunnen beperken. Veel mensen hebben zich hierbij neergelegd, ze stoppen met belasten, nemen pijnstillers etc, maar de klachten gaan niet weg. Weinigen weten dat deze klachten kunnen worden veroorzaakt door triggerpoints, hypergevoelige plekken in het spierweefsel. Triggerpoints zijn kleine verkrampingen die niet alleen pijn in de spier kunnen veroorzaken, maar ook in de nabijgelegen zenuwbanen en lichaamsdelen. Ze kunnen ontstaan door tal van oorzaken waaronder stress, overbelasting, verwondingen en ongevallen. Door op de juiste manier druk uit te oefenen op de triggerpoints kan de pijn worden verlicht en kunnen functies van verzwakte lichaamsdelen weer verbeteren. 📷: Kaj Hendriks #softtissuetherapie #sportmassage #vitaal #blessurevrij #massagetherapie #myofascialrelease #triggerpoints #ijsselstein #vooruitgang

Celý život se něco učíte, pracujete s tím, veříte tomu a pak zjistíte že je i jiná cesta. Cesta která je trochu protikladem toho co jste doposud dělali a čemu jste věřili. Musíte být naprosto otevření, zbourat své přesvědčení a začít skoro od začátku. Tedy pokud v té cestě vidíte smysl a pokud se vás dotkne na tom nejdůležitějším místě.❤️.
Nehodnotit, být otevřený, přijímat co přichází a vnímat to jako tu nejlepší možnost v danou chvíli.
V tom vidím smysl a základní kámen mé práce ale i mého života.

Bra jobbat allihop 🌟😎 Övningar för ökad rörlighet, förbättrad studs/fjädring i steget, avslappning och andningsteknik blandades med diskussion kring teorin om löpningens grunder och hur det moderna livet och de moderna skorna påverkar oss och hela rörelseapparaten. Varför är 8 av 10 löpare skadade och hur kan vi minimera risken för skador när vi rör oss? Och hur vi kan jobba med de fyra krafterna: ➰Gravitationen
➰GRF (kraften du stöter i marken varje steg) samt de inre krafterna:
➰Elasticitet
➰ Muskelkraft

24 maj startar nästa löpskola, säkra din plats eller få mer info genom att maila info@exactmove.se eller kom förbi butiken!
