Unraveling the Connection: Psychological Stress and Muscle Trigger Points

Hello, everyone!

Paulius here from JANMI, your sanctuary of healing in the bustling heart of Marylebone. Today, let’s delve into a topic that resonates with many of us yet often goes unaddressed: the impact of psychological stress on our muscles, specifically how it can lead to the development of painful trigger points.

The Invisible Link

It’s no secret that stress can wreak havoc on our bodies, but did you know it can literally tighten your muscles? When we're stressed, our body's natural response is to tense up. This 'fight or flight' reaction was useful in prehistoric times, but in today’s world, chronic stress keeps our muscles in a constant state of guardedness. This can lead to the development of trigger points – hyperirritable spots in the skeletal muscle.

Why It Matters

Trigger points are not just ordinary muscle soreness. They are serious knots that can cause deep, aching pain, which often radiates to other parts of the body. Ever felt a neck twinge that somehow spiked a headache? That’s trigger points at work.

JANMI's Approach to Combatting Stress-Induced Trigger Points

At JANMI, we don’t just see the pain; we look at the person as a whole. Our approach is holistic – we understand that to treat the trigger point, we must also address the stress.
