Have you found that TPs always come back in the same location, or different places in the same muscle? ThanksReply
Thank you very much for these videos. This is the first time I’ve heard that you can do it pain free, I just assumed you needed to “tough it out” and put all the pressure you could on the trigger point to get it to release. I use the term “mashing it” and while that works, it’s very hard to do on yourself due to the pain.
I really appreciate what you’ve described and will surely share with others.Reply
Dear Dr. Kuttner:
I have a pain at the inside part of my left elbow. Supposedly golfist elbow (not tennis elbow)…haven’t been golf player in my life! I think it started once I begun exercising with a large fit ball, making pushups on top of it.
I can feel a little bit hotter and spongy than the other elbow, the string that crosses just below the point of the elbow is a little thicker than the right elbow and it hurts when I press the inside bone of the elbow. It seems to be something on the tendon and not a muscular pain.
Good day to you and thanks for the generosity that you have shown by making this level of info free. I am experiencing pain when I move my left thumb and I am unable to identify the Tps and hence shut it off. Can you send me anymore addittional info that will help ; thanks.
thank you very much for sharing your knowledge …..very useful…at the moment because my TPin the neck is active the pain like you said goes up my ear ….and tooth….my question is …do you think there is a possibility that food intolerance, can activate trigger points?….thank you ever so much….bye eleonoraReply
