In this February issue of Muscle News, we will talk about the fascinating and often more debilitating problem of visual disturbances such as blurred vision and severe pain on the back of the eyeball itself.

In this issue of Muscle News, we will address the irritating, painful and sometimes disabling condition of a nerve being compressed in our bodies. With even just a brief instant of compression on a nerve, such as when we hit our "funny bone" in the elbow (the Ulnar Nerve), we can experience shooting pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. When prolonged compression of a nerve occurs, such as a pinched nerve in the neck or low back (for example, sciatica), it can be extremely painful or even debilitating. A nerve that is commonly compressed and creates serious pain, numbness and weakness in the forearm, wrist, hand and fingers is called the Median Nerve, and it can be tricky, evading proper diagnosis and thwarting attempts at treatment. Its tendency to get trapped and compressed at multiple places from the neck to the wrist earns it the nickname the "Pinch Me" nerve.

But could this be yet another case where Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy has some answers for us?
