Anyone suffering from muscle pain will be looking for permanent muscle and joint pain relief. If at all possible!
Did you know that trigger points are often overlooked as being a possible cause of pain? I mean, after all, they often don’t bring even give pain near to where they are! But once you know what these trigger points are and how they work, you will never ignore them again.
When we have stiffness and pain nagging at us in our joints, the urge to find relief can be at the front of our minds every waking hour of the day. In another post what I explain is reiki relive from muscular pain, but for now I am more concerned with:-
The answer depends upon what is causing the pain.
When we have an acute pain, if we can locate and deal with the cause, whether it be an infection or damaged tissue, then the pain should go away.
However, if we have chronic or ongoing pain, the cause can be difficult to locate and treat. And, strangely enough, the pathways that the pain travels along, via its sensory receptors (nociceptors) can actually be difficult to turn off. In fact, these nociceptors can even continue giving the sensation of pain even when the original cause of the pain has been stopped. In these cases muscle and joint pain relief can seem to be impossible to find.
Pain relief in the muscles and the release of stiffness in the joints sometimes requires a combination of different treatments in order to deal with these factors and to finally enable the problem to be “cured”.
Is There A Best Way to To Get Permanent Muscle And Joint Pain Relief?
There is no “best ” way, but often a very effective way of relieving most pain is quite simple. We do it by causing the areas around the inflamed nerves to relax, thus allowing more oxygen to flow into the area and thereby bring an increased blood flow. This has the effect of causing the pain signal to turn itself off, which in turn gives the joint pain relief that is craved.
Essentially it is the lack of blood and oxygen in the painful area which causes the pain.
It can often be as simple as that.
In the past, when my clients have asked how to get permanent relief from joint & muscle pain, time limitations have often prevented me giving the detailed information asked for. But I recently came across a ground-breaking book where all the explaining has been done for me. The book explains will show you how to use “Trigger Points” to deal with joint stiffness and how to get that joint pain relief that means so much.
The technique involves applying short, repeated massage strokes to tiny contraction knots in muscle tissue (trigger points) where restricted circulation and lack of oxygen cause referred pain. (Referred pain is pain that is felt next to, or at a distance from, the origin of an injury). Trigger points create pain throughout the body. And they do this in predictable patterns, producing discomfort and pain from mild to very severe levels.
Deal with the trigger points and you automatically deal with the pain they are causing – all at the same time.
In actual fact, pain and stiffness in our joints can often simply be “referred pain” from related trigger points. And once someone knows how to find the points, and how to stimulate them, joint pain relief and stiffness can become an easily managed and straightforward process for many people.
Massaging the appropriate trigger points increases circulation and oxygenation in the target area. And this in turn can bring about permanent muscle and joint pain relief especially when it is done consistently.
When trigger points are the cause of the problem, trigger point therapy can be used to help deal with

Even when a hip or knee joint has suffered a verifiable physical injury, trigger points in associated muscles usually contribute a major part of the pain. And referred pain can be every bit as intense and debilitating as the “real” pain you can get from a damaged joint.
Permanent Muscle And Joint Pain Relief
Clair Davies, a nationally certified massage therapist, simplifies Travell and Simons’s extensive research into myofascial pain in The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook: Your Self-Treatment for Pain Relief (Trigger Point Therapy Workbook: Your Self-Treatment Guide for Pain Relief). He makes this powerful system easy to understand and shows you – in step by step process – how to apply it to yourself.
To be honest, there are some people who are suffering from a different type of pain, and in these cases, trigger point therapy will only bring limited joint pain relief. However, research is now showing that even all fybromyalgia patients have myofascial trigger points that contribute significantly to their pain problem. It can be surprising just how many of us are affected by trigger point pain without our realising it.
