Fantastic information for anyone that is having back pain.
The information is right on the money with the trigger points marked in red dead on to the location of my own naughty knots so much so, that the drawings could be of me. Even have the same hair cut. ;)
I have herniated C6,C7, T1. L4 L5 and S1, and just to keep it fun, 7 others bulging.
Using a rubber softball in the old sock, I have slowly been "squishing" those gremlins out a little at a time working from one trigger to the next starting away from the heart and working in. After each round of the ball, I pace until the pain dies a tad, then heat and rub all of the muscles in the treated limb. Make sure to drink LOTS OF WATER. I guess it helps to heal the muscles by flushing toxins and allowing proper blood flow. By the way, I am in no way a Dr, I'm just your average Joe that has been to so many Dr's with no real answers other to give me pills that should make me look and feel like Charlie Sheen after a good weekend, yet, the non-stop waves of differing pain seem to not only laugh at the drugs, but not even let them effect me in anyway.
Pressure points are painful to work out, but I believe it is the best way to release the tension in in each muscle allowing it to stretch back to normal and taking the pull and pressure off the spine, therefor, the disk. Once again, not a Dr, I just helping pay for their summer homes.
Use the net to find stretches, yoga, feel the muscle in pain, look up it's name and then the stretches and rehab for each one. I feel that it's all about getting the body back to it's normal flow, as painful as it maybe, most spine suffers know pain at a much higher level, to me the working out with the ball never hit higher than a 5 With a 10 being when you find yourself locked up in the middle of the floor, unable to move for 12 hours and tinkling on your own carpet. ;p
Peace and pain free days to you my back pain friends.
