Event Description

Allied Physicians & Rehab of Southern Illinois will host three, free Trigger Point Therapy workshops in the month of August in an effort to educate the community on how stress can affect your health in a variety of ways, and will teach participants how to locate their body’s own trigger points, as well as how to manipulate them to relieve pain or headaches, as well as a broad range of other symptoms.

Trigger Points themselves are simply areas of muscle fiber that have become knotted due to a multitude of possible causes from stress, trauma or acute muscle overload. These areas of muscle tightness restrict blood flow and removal of toxins from your muscles, causing acute pain or tenderness in the area, as well as radiating pain to another point in the body.

Stress can be a common cause of trigger point development, and too much stress can actually cause physical problems that can lead to more serious complications. Prescription or over-the-counter drugs are a common answer, but they have a menu of negative side effects, often work to simply numb your body to the symptom, and worse yet, the physical reaction to stress can continue to come back and possibly get worse.

Trigger Point Therapy offers a safe and natural solution to relieving stress-related problems like headaches, muscle or joint pain, digestive problems, or any other problems caused or aggravated by stress. Dalton Heath, D.C. will facilitate the workshops. Subway will be served to all participants. The workshops will be held at 1100 W. Main St. in Carbondale. Seating is limited to the first 15 callers. To reserve your seat, call (618) 529-0245. The workshops will last just over an hour and will take place on Tuesday, August 7th at 6:30 p.m; Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 11:45 a.m; and Tuesday, Aug. 21 at 6:30 p.m. All classes are free to attend.
