One of my clients recently, told me that prior to coming to my clinic, she had been told.
“Everyone has back problems and you’ve just got to live with it”.
I believe that is a almost criminal comment. My question is why is this the case and why do we accept it.?
Pain comes in several different forms, from the dull nagging ,sharp and sudden, to the pain we have with Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis .
There are many reasons,but not dealing with muscular pathologies, surely is not the right way to go.
We should not just be expected to accept it and live with it.This is the field in which we work at Getfitstayfit Norfolk.
If a joint is out of out of alignment it will easily cause multiple issues, one being the lack of good blood supply, then concerns with the nervous system creating pain. Hyperirritable area’s in taut muscle are never a good thing.
Trigger points often appear, also known as trigger sites or muscle knots,( just for the record although called muscle knots a muscle can not knot as it has an origin and an insertion ) are described as hyperirritable spots sarcomeres in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taunt bands of muscle fibres
Research has improved considerably in the knowledge of what a Trigger Point Formation is, this is when a dysfunctional endplate occurs, commonly associated with a strain or the over building of muscle tissue that can then be damaged, stored calcium is realised at the site that creates a oxygen nutrient deficit.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is needed in order to remove the excessive calcium the problem is that ATP is decreased by the tightening of the tissue this then restricts the blood supply . The persistence’s of high calcium level resumes causing Acetylcholine (ACh), release creating a viscous cycle.
Why we can help You.!
The need is to stop the cycle. We specialise in muscle injury, with cutting edge equipment to deal with muscle injury from the use of the Hydrotherm Massage bed .
