Muscle is the most extensive organ inside our bodies, and it accounts for about 50% of our weight. We have over 400 muscles, and they can all develop trigger points that can result in pain and cause all kinds of dysfunctions.
Most minor trigger points are probably self-treatable, and you would be able to perform them yourself because you can get enough relief from this kind of discomfort with the help of self-massage. But, when the pain is stronger, and the issues are more extreme it is essential that you seek professional help because if you try to do everything on your own, you might end up hurting yourself and making things worse.
Everything started ten years ago when I injured my back while I was weightlifting. I had been having severe back pain usually a few times a month and even more. As I was getting older, I noticed that the frequency of the pain was definitely increasing and the recovery started to take weeks. I saw that my back was not getting any better and I decided to try out all kinds of massage techniques that I could find on YouTube and other places online. But this didn’t seem to help at all. I thought that maybe I’m not doing things right and I decided that the best thing for me at the moment was to see a trained specialist. So I called and made an appointment at the Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic.
The First Appointment
I met Dr. Ghaith for my first appointment at the clinic and after I told him all about my back and the almost constant pain he presented me with the solution: trigger point therapy. Of course, at first, I was quite skeptical because I had more doctor visits over the years and none of them seemed to help me. I found out that approximately 74% of the time, these trigger points are not even located in the area where you feel the symptoms, and that’s why working on that specific area remains without results. What I can tell you is that after the first session with Dr. Ghaith when I left the clinic I was already feeling better. I was looking forward to my next meetings with him.
My Overall Experience
Two days ago I had my fifth session of trigger point therapy with Dr, Ghaith and I feel amazing. Probably the turning point for me was between the third and the fourth sessions. Up until then, I must confess that I was still having my doubts about the therapy, but I kept following my doctor’s advice. After the fifth visit, I can tell you that my back pain and other symptoms that were associated with it are entirely gone, at least for now. I have been reading a lot of success stories involving Trigger Point Therapy, and I’m delighted I have become one myself. This is really efficient in restoring muscle efficiency and improving sports performance as well. So, if you have any health issues regarding your muscles don’t hesitate to visit Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic and meet Dr. Ghaith because you will never regret it. They also have the top specialist for acupuncture Ottawa has. He also deals with active lifestyle integration, and myofascial release therapy and postural rehabilitation. The clinic provides lots of techniques included in chiropractic and physiotherapy care.
