When the doctors can’t figure out why you are in pain

I’d like to start this post by apologizing for being away for so long. I recently sent my horse to an equine therapy barn, where handicapped kids and adults have the opportunity to ride. It was a difficult decision to make, I was very attached to Phantom, but he was not a good fit for me, so instead of continuing to force it, I did the best thing for him and hopefully he’ll love being a therapy horse. Now I have the daunting task of finding another horse, I certainly learned a lot from my mistakes the first time around. I look forward to a very happy relationship with my next horse.

Now, to the subject at hand. I have been seeing a theme with some of my new clients lately and it’s this; they are in pain and they’ve had MRI’s, x-rays, other tests and even seen a variety of doctors. The results are always the same, they can’t find anything wrong. Some doctors even imply that the patient is making it up, or make them feel like they have a screw loose. Luckily, these patients don’t give up easily and opt for cortisone shots or pills, they do some research and learn that they may have Trigger Points. There is great book on Trigger Point Therapy, called, "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook" by Clair Davies.

The majority of clients I see that have had this experience with their doctors do in fact have Trigger Points, and I have been able to give them a tremendous amount of pain relief through this massage technique.
