Pain is usually a warning signal. Like the warning light on a car dashboard, it tells you that something is wrong, or a smoke alarm that is warning of impending danger. You only shut it off if you are aware and are dealing with the problem. Deactivating the warning signals means greater and greater damage and the repair bill just keeps on adding up.
Pain experienced in one area, could be a chain reaction to a problem in another one. Cracks in the walls, ceiling or windows of a house are often symptoms of problems in the foundation. Many of our aches and pains in the head, neck, shoulders, back, hips, knees, jaw, shoulders, etc. actually are related to problems wit poor postural alignment of the spine. It causes muscles to tighten and use excessive energy and produce myofascial pain or "contraction knots."
The knot locations are called trigger points.. According to Dr. Howard Makofsky, Professor of Physical Therapy and former co-director of the TMJ and Headache Centers at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, New York, "It has been demonstrated with microdialysis needle technique that active trigger points contain significantly higher concentrations of protons, bradykinin, CGRP, substance P, serotonin, interleukin-1 beta, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and norepinephrine than normal subjects and individuals with latent trigger points.
