Believe it or not, shoulder and arm pain can be triggered by the condition of muscles in the neck, hand pain by a muscle under the shoulder blade, low back pain by a hip flexor, headaches by neck and back muscles, etc. That's why rubbing the sore spot may feel good at the moment, but only helps temporarily. In contrast, Trigger Point Therapy maps pain to its source, and involves finding and releasing small knots, known as trigger points, in specific muscles not necessarily at the site of pain. This simple treatment has been known to succeed where pills, shots and surgeries have failed. Client feedback and client-therapist dialogue is required throughout the session.
