Subscapularis Trigger Point in axilla

Subscapularis Trigger Point in axilla

1/31/2015   Summary of the first “Introduction the Self Treatment of Myofascial Trigger Points” class held January 24th, 2015.

It was Thanksgiving 2014 and we are watching the Seahawks demolish the 49 er’s . It was in the euphoria of the win (and a few beers) that I decided I needed to take the plunge and set a date to teach my first “real” class of the new year: January, 24th, 2015.

My first class went very well and it was a blast.  I couldn’t have asked for a better group, as we had clients, OT’s, PT’s, PTA’s, massage therapists, yoga teachers, and Pilates teachers all represented.  As a Physical Therapist, I’ve been an advocate for self Trigger Point work as a home exercise program for years as this can be a very simple, but effective method of helping daily, “vanilla” complaints of musculoskeletal pain.  It was from this belief that I decided I should make a 1 day class about this topic and cover common muscles that I treat daily.  I will be offering the class again March, 28th, 2015 and registration has opened.  Please call Darcy at 360 715-8686 to register.  Hope to see you there, Ed
