Trigger Points are a frequent cause of Muscular Pain.
People often talk of a “Trapped Nerve” when describing the pain they experience from a Trigger Point. The Pain can be excruciating, and left untreated, they can cause months of unrelenting Pain.
Treating a Trigger Point requires precision. Firstly to detect it, and then to accurately Needle it with an Acupuncture Needle. The relief is normally immediate, although an ache may linger for 24 hours after treatment.
I have used Acupuncture to treat Trigger Points very successfully. When a person does not like Needles, Deep Massage can be used. This helps greatly, but is not as effective as Acupuncture.
David Drysdale has worked as an Osteopath in the West End of Glasgow since 1996.
David combines a wide range of techniques when treating a patient, ranging from Osteopathic Manipulation, Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Nutrition and Exercise.
Treatments are tailored for the Patient. It is understood that some people simply do not like osteopathic manipulation, while others like Deep Tissue Massage, or benefit from Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
There are different ways of treating people who are in pain, and providing the treatment that works for you is very important.
Osteopathy is well known for treating Headaches, Neck & Back Pain, but many other conditions such as migraines, frozen shoulder and arthritis can all respond well to good Osteopathic treatment.
