Nagging pain on the head, back of neck, shoulders, on back or down arms is a lot of the time caused by trigger points. Trigger points are hypershortened muscles that refer pain to other parts of the body. Trigger Points were mapped out in the 1940's by Janet Travell, MD (1901-1997). Dr. Travell trained as a cardiologist and pharmacologist. A journey with her own shoulder pain led her to explore myofascial pain treatment with her heart patients. She published Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual, in 1983.
It is from this manual and continuing education classes, Christine has learned how to relieve trigger point referral pain in her clients.
