    I came to this website by chance.I suffer pins & needles in my left foot & left arm. I’m wondering if trigger points help.otherwise I’m in good health

    Hello Muni,

    yes, trigger points can tighten the scalene and pectoralis minor muscles. This can cause them to impinge on the nerves that supply the arm – causing numbness and tingling. The same thing can happen in the leg if the piriformis muscle has trigger points and is very tight.

    Dear Jonathon, Thank you so much for your terrific website. I have suffered pain due to an awkward lifting of an elderly patient nearly 20 years ago. This mid back pain now involving my neck, knees and everywhere between is all encompasing and soul destroying. Thank you for your help. Mary

    I have been using this trigger point release technique and it has made a huge difference, when I have a headache coming on (caused by my neck) I can do 3 or 4 releases (this takes about 8 minutes) on each side of the neck and it can stop the headache getting worse. I also use it for over use of the shoulders and for glutes after running, it really helps to settle things down. As time goes by you get much better at finding and releasing the trigger points.
