Inevitably, one of the first questions many individuals will ask themselves shortly before their 1st injection is “where do I inject?” While there is no right or wrong answer, the most commonly injected muscles among first time users are the glutes and delts. Both muscle groups are relatively painless (potentially), do not have any major veins/arteries near the surface, and contain a lower density of nerves. Quads are another popular bodypart used for injections, although one does need to be a bit more careful when injecting in this area, as there are more nerves, veins, an arteries in the area.
I decided to follow the instructions given in The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook and began daily massage of the trigger points in the thickest part of the muscle at the top of my forearm. I found it was quite useful for relieving the pain but not a lot happened at first. It was only after several weeks of doing this, that I began to notice significant differences. In fact, by end September, this generalised RSI pain was largely resolved. This was a big breakthrough because until then, I was largely relying on the Powerball to rebuild weakness in the forearm muscles. But as Sara had explained with my other symptoms, the rehabilitation of weakened muscles was not enough: I also needed to deactivate the trigger points. Remember, trigger points cause muscles to be used inefficiently and shorten the fibres thereby weakening the muscles and exacerbating the problem. The rehabilitation of weakened muscles resolves part of the problem but the trigger points also needs to be deactivated.
