Although it’s a highly effective form of treatment, trigger point therapy is not as well know as some of the others. In other words, your doctor may not know about the benefits of trigger point therapy but your chiropractor would. Nevertheless, a lack of popularity should not take away from the vast benefits of trigger point therapy. If it works for you then, by all means, do it. However, one has to ask the question of why this therapy is needed in the first place? It is known that trigger point therapy is an effective treatment, but what is actually causing the pain that necessitates therapy? In most cases, the answer is poor spinal
Understand, the moving parts of your skeletal system work together in unison to function optimally with minimal wear and tear (friction) when properly aligned. When misalignment occurs, as in poor posture, it increases the friction between these moving parts and causes muscles to have to work harder in order to overcome the increase resistance from misalignment. Muscle pain and knots (trigger points) are the result. Unlike the Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, the BODY-ALINE directly treats the root cause of most chronic muscle pain by realigning your entire body. Once your body is realigned and functioning optimally, your need to for trigger point therapy may go away. Many have asked the questions: “Does trigger point therapy work?” and “Does trigger point therapy massage work for back pain?” This analysis summarizes why, in our opinion, the BODY-ALINE is a better & more effective back pain solution compared to even the best back pain trigger point therapies, which the “Trigger Point Therapy Workbook” is. Although, they both could work very well together.
If vertrabrae are chronically out of alignment, the stressed placed on muscle due to tightness and pain can cause trigger points.

A Personal Review of the Trigger Point Therapy Workbook for Chronic Back Pain from BODY-ALINE Co-Inventor Jason Bowman…
I have personally witnessed the dramatic healing effect of trigger point therapy on others and I recommend it if it helps you – whether you need to buy the trigger point therapy workbook and do it yourself or visit a doctor. But the ultimate goal of any treatment program should not ONLY be to treat the symptom(s) but to treat the cause as well. The BODY-ALINE treats the root cause of most muscle pain by aligning your entire body so that all your musculature functions optimally and smoothly all the time. Use trigger point to recover, then use the BODY-ALINE to prevent it from happening again.
