Rheumatoid Arthritis or Referred Pain From Your Neck?Print
When John started receiving trigger point therapy, it was after a long struggle with tendonitis-like pain in his hands. He had seen a doctor who told him he had Rheumatoid Arthritis. John went to a specialist at a prominent hospital who was considered to be one of the best in the country. This doctor ran some additional testing which revealed that John DID NOT have Rheumatoid Arthritis. He told John that what he had was Myofascial Pain.
According to John, what surprised him the most was that the pain in his hands was actually referred pain from a muscle in his neck! You might remember this muscle from a previous issue of Muscle News: The Scalenes... also known as "The Entrappers", due to their ability to pinch nerves going down the arm.
