I have been seeing Bill for Trigger Point Therapy. It has changed my life in more ways than one. Originally, I went to see him regarding bladder problems, and he found many other trigger points that needed some TLC. I had been struggling with my bladder for seven years, I had surgery twice and saw many specialists regarding it. After three sessions with Bill, it started to improve. I had so many trigger points in my abdominals, that it was referring pain (and symptoms) to my bladder.
I also suffered from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for 3 years, after about 2 months (8 treatments) all the symptoms I had were gone. By seeing Bill and practicing home self-treatment, to this day I am still symptom free. Again, I had tried medication, herbs, acupuncture and other methods and nothing seemed to work. All of the stress over the years had built up and caused a lot of my symptoms. Being a personal trainer I am very active and so a lot of my muscles had endured high impact and the stress of over-training. I also used to suffer from PMS, severe cramps and headaches – by regularly seeing Bill and doing home self-treatments, my monthly encounters are almost symptom free. It is such a great feeling.
We underestimate the power our muscles have over our bodies, after all, we are made up of so many tiny and large muscles that we have no idea what they can do under stress.
I have learned from Bill, to listen to my body and how to prevent trigger points. As mentioned above, stress (emotional and physical) plays a huge factor in myofascial trigger points, and they can be hiding in places you least expect. I now know how my body works and how to keep on top of things.
I hope that even one person will read my story and be able to get some help for themselves. I truly believe that trigger point therapy (bodywork) can help with many symptoms, and if you have patience and have tried everything else, it will work with time. Remember, it didn’t take overnight for your symptoms to appear, so it may take time to alleviate them.
