Through years of not stretching i’ve found myself with less than the optimum range of motion about all my joints. Now this is becoming a real problem and causing injuries as well as other complications like a stiff neck and headaches etc.
I have included stretching in all my workouts pre and post for the last six months but i don’t seem to have made any progress with flexability.
Recently i have read about trigger point therapy and that trigger points can cause reductions in range of motion and make your muscles resistant to traditional stretching until the trigger points have been dealt with.
I'd like to believe this as it gives me hope that i can get back to full fitness but i wondered if anyone else has been in a similar situation or used trigger point therapy successfully?
Any help you guys can give would be great as i’m losing my motivation to train (haven’t trained for three weeks now) and the stiff neck, back and headaches are making everyday life a grind.
