With myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles or trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. Dr. Paul Grimm is experienced in alleviating this pain with specialized hands-on techniques.
Normal myofascial muscles should feel pliable and elastic. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (and most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies/sports or by stress-related muscle tension.
Symptoms of Myofasical Pain Syndrome:
- Deep, aching pain in a muscle
- A tender knot in a muscle
- Back pain and neck pain
- Sinus issues or allergies
- Immune system issues
- Numbness, tingling or pain in the extremities
Trigger Point Threapy for Myofascial Pain (Joint Pain):
Dr. Grimm will find and target the more rigid areas as well as other areas affected by this tightness, utilizing hands-on manipulation to release the tension found in the body. He will work with you and help you manage and release the tension that has been building. This tension would normally seem unrelated to other ailments, but this chronic pain disorder is due to sensitivity and tightness in certain tissues.
