Trigger Point Therapy with Electro-stimulation

Special thanks to Drs. Travel and Simon and Rick J. Bernard L.Ac.

Travel and Simon describe a trigger point as simply a small contracture knot in muscle tissue.  It will feel denser or tighter than the surrounding muscle tissue.  Often you can feel a taut guitar-like string in the muscle fiber harboring the trigger point.  The constant tension in the fibers of the trigger point itself restricts circulation of blood in its immediate area.  The resulting accumulation of the by-products of metabolism, as well as deprivation of the oxygen and nutrients needed for metabolism, can perpetuate trigger points for months or even years unless some intervention occurs.  It is this self sustaining cycle that needs to be broken,

Trigger points are known to cause headaches, neck and jaw pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, and many kinds of joint pain mistakenly ascribed to arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, or ligament injury.  Trigger points cause problems as diverse as earaches, dizziness, nausea, tennis elbow, sinus pain and congestion, as well as all sorts of back, leg, and arm muscle pain.

According to Rick J. Bernard L. Ac. who has treated 65,000+ pain  patients at Kaiser Permanente Hospital, even in cases when x-rays reveal some pathology such as degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, osteoarthritis. etc., the source of pain can usually be traced to tension in the muscular system via its trigger points.

In  Orthopedic acupuncture the benefit of using electro-stimulation with  acupuncture needles at the trigger point site is threefold:
    1.  It creates an anti-inflammatory effect.
    2. It creates an analgesic effect- an electrical wave form/biphasic             i       with  negative  spike.
    3.  It creates a regenerating and healing effect via an ionic current which  increases micro-circulation  and accelerates tissue regeneration and repair.

Most people have many trigger points accumulated due to prior experiences in sports activities, gym work outs, or just overextending themselves in day to day efforts.
