Hicaps massage cairns – Trigger points – the focus of remedial massages – Only adequate, focused, specific palpation techniques allow the practitioner to identify trigger points within a muscle. Through palpitation we identify generalized tightness of the musculature within the vincinty of the suspected trigger point. As we palpate we locate the specific muscle that is shortened and then locate the specific band within the muscle that is taut. Continued palpation will reveal an area along the band that is particularly tight and then a point within the area that is exquisitely tender. Here we have located the trigger point. Direct manual pressure to that trigger point elicits what Travell called a local twitch response – that is, a literal twitch of the muscle that is sometimes visible (depending on the placement of the muscle) and is often experienced by the patient. In additions, there may be a ‘patient jump sign’ – that is, the patient jumps or cries out in pain. The pain that the patient expresses is often greater than the practitioner may expect given the degree of pressure applied. With extended pressure to the trigger point, the referred pain pattern may be felt in its entirety by the patient.
Hicaps massage cairns – Once located, the trigger point must be reduced. This is accomplished primarily through remedial massage techniques. Also depending on the specialty of the practitioner, needling may also be used (both techniques found here in this clinical practice also). Needling may include acupuncture needling or dry needling.
Remedial massage therapy for trigger points may require compressing the trigger point for 15 to 20 seconds, followed by manipulation of the surrounding bands of muscle tissue to reduce local constrictions and taut muscular bands.
Hicaps massage cairns – Once there is sufficient reduction of the trigger points and associated constrictions, the patient is instructed in stretching techniques specific to the involved muscles. The stretches aimed at keeping the muscle from returning to the shortened state. Repeated stretching throughout the day is unquestionably one of the most important aspects of treatment.
Finally, depending upon the degree of weakness of the muscle, after it is clear that the muscle is not readily returning to a contracted state the patient is instructed on specific strengthening exercises to help him return to optimal activity levels and to prevent the muscle from tending to return to a state of disability.
Hicaps massage cairns, Australian unity remedial massage cairns along with NIB remedial massage cairns – It is important to note that the conditioning of a muscle is ultimately dependent upon the conditioning of the whole body. It is vitally important to help each patient attain an optimum level of health with a program that includes exercises that will generally strengthen both the musculature and the cardiovascular system. Every part is only as viable as the whole. To view and treat a single muscle or muscle group without consideration of the whole is insufficient treatment. An expansive view of the whole body must be integrated into the care of each patient.
