Research by Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons, authors of “The Trigger Point Manual,” has shown that trigger points are the primary cause of pain at least 75 percent of the time and are a factor in nearly every painful condition.
Trigger points, a type of muscle stiffness, are the result of tiny contraction knots that develop in muscle and tissue when an area of the body is injured or overworked. Trigger points are something traditional doctors ignore, but they could be the one thing that has been overlooked in your case for years, if not decades. A hallmark of trigger points is something called “referred” pain. This means that trigger points typically send their pain to some other place in the body, which is why conventional treatments for pain so often fail. Many health care practitioners wrongly assume that the problem is located where the pain is and therefore fail to assess the body correctly to find the cause of your pain.
"I am an athletic female who loves to play all sports. About 15 years ago I had a major back surgery where they took part of my hip bone and fused it to my back to heal a broken vertabrae. The surgury was a success until about 4 years later I started getting horribe back spasms. I found myself depressed and mentally drained.. I honestly did not expect it work as I had grown tired of being dissapointed. In 6 weeks I was back to my old self the way I was before I hurt my back. I cant stress enough how Jessa turned my life around. I now play anything I want." -
