Maintaining Your “Guns” Requires Eliminating “Triggers”
Who are the delinquents getting “trigger happy” in your vicinity?
They are closer to home than you think. In fact, if you carry stress anywhere in your body, you are wearing them right now.
The menace? Trigger points! And they are driven to set you off with almost no provocation. What did you do to deserve it? The answer to that is also the secret to getting rid of them.
Let’s look at their composition, their causes and your options to handle them.
What are trigger points?
Trigger points are points in the muscles which, quite literally, trigger reactions in other areas, interrupting proper function and often causing pain and discomfort. This could be in the form of pain, numbness or tension in seemingly unrelated areas.
They are easily recognizable as the “knots” you describe you feel commonly in your shoulders and back muscles, and are what you target when you seek a relaxing massage.
While you may get some temporary relief from such measures, try as you may, you seldom find riddance of the condition. The reason is simple: it is not the trigger point that is the problem, but its source. What causes trigger points should really be the target.
So, what causes trigger points?
The interesting thing is that there is no one cause of trigger points, per se. In other words, sometimes a variety or combination of factors can be at fault.
For one, muscles have basic requirements to work.
To contract and relax to meet the demands of basic talks such as lifting, walking, sitting or standing, the muscles must be able to coordinate. Further, nerve energy flow and conduction must be sufficient to allow the brain to communicate with the muscles.
The blocks to these factors are actually, themselves, common sources of trigger points. Magnesium deficiency, for instance, causes an inability for muscles to relax after contracting.
Nerve irritation by displacement of the spine, or even lack of calcium and magnesium also makes it difficult for the brain to delegate either contraction or relaxation to the muscles.
What can you do about your trigger points?
It seems obvious that, by learning what trigger points are and how to locate them, you can open the door to doing something about them. In evidence, there is information all over the internet on how to “relieve” them.
So, while learning how to “massage away” your trigger points, though valuable, is of but limited use. Relief only implies that you must “live with them” when, in actuality, you need not have them in the first place.
Riddance and prevention are yet possible when their proper cause is located and targeted for correction. Care for their causes and you can possibly prevent reduce or eliminate them.
As for mineral deficiency, always make sure a proper balance of minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium, is maintained.
