How Does the BodyWellness™ Trigger Point CaneWork and Who is it for?
Whatis a trigger point?
Trigger points are tender spots that develop as a result of muscular injuries, strains, and trauma. When muscles, ligaments, and tendons become weakened, overstretched, or inflamed, tiny tears in the soft tissue can occur. As the tissue heals, it contracts, becoming twisted and knotted. These knotted fibers restrict the blood supply needed by the muscle. To protect itself from further injury, the muscle “learns” to avoid pain and guards against it by limiting the muscle’s movement. If not treated effectively, a cycle of increasing pain, muscle spasms, and loss of function can occur and develop into a chronic condition.
How the BodyWellness™ Trigger Point Cane Works to Relieve Pain
Pressure on a trigger point helps deactivate it, although the exact mechanism is not known. Most likely, the massaging effect performed using the “Cane” helps relax the knotted area, normalizing blood flow to the muscle.
