The tension of the head skin rises sharply on the skull roof. The extreme values are in the area of the top legs and at the back of the head. In EMG (electromyographic) measurements 0.7 to 1.2 is measured as a normal voltage of Muskulus frontalis (to the forehead) about microVolt. Patients tension within the range of approx. 30 microvolts Trichodynie at, measuring up to 180 microvolts. Very often this tension even in relaxation exercises can be no longer brought microVolt under values of approx. 15-30.
Along with the increased tension, the scalp tight close over the head causes a clenching of running under the skin finest arterial (arteries, arterioles) and venous blood vessels. The narrowed blood vessels provide the affected scalp areas no longer sufficiently with oxygen and nutrients. The ongoing blood and oxygen deficiency in the tissue leads to the formation of unwanted metabolic products. From the muscle glycogen, glucose is burned incompletely, forming lactate (lactic acid”), which accumulates in the stressed muscles. This can lead to an acidification “the muscle, which can be very painful. (Not to be confused with Consumers Energy !). Also the finest micro cracks known from the soreness in the muscle fibrils can trigger the pain. Also through the muscle tension throughout and other receptors (sensor of the nervous system), such as chemoreceptors, aroused in the muscle, tendon, or even in the area of the skin. It comes to intense pain, also connected resulting in numbness (Formication, tingling feeling).
In addition, the permanent pressure of muscles leads to increased irritation of the nerves. The nerves that supply the muscle, Learn by muscle tension a continuous excitement and show an increased stimulation activity, which in turn leads to a gain of muscle tension through a not deliberately controlled reflex. Closes the circle of muscle tension and nervous continuous stimulation. The treatment of complex, which results from the tension of the cranial muscles and leads to the Trichodynie (hair pain) can be solved. This can be achieved by relaxation exercises or massages, or by means of muskelrelaxierende. Muscle relaxing agents inhibit the ongoing transmission of stimulus signals between nerves and muscles and have the advantage that they act within a few days. This effective and sustainable relaxation of the muscles of the scalp is target of AC-therapy hair loss. The effect begins after about 2 to 3 days (demonstrable muscle weakening) effect. The Trichodynie can be alleviated as a result almost always considerably or completely fixed. The duration of the total effect of this treatment can be individually over a period of approx. 4 7 months span. With 40 treated a significant improvement of the Trichodynie achieved a clinical examination at 100%. 74% of people treated were then passed to the treatment completely without symptoms. (see treatment results and experience reports) the effect of the drug free muscle relaxation is reversible. After a certain time the stimulus signals reach the muscle. The treatment can be repeated then. The renewed treatment is carried out at an early stage when re-inserting the tension, the total duration can be increased significantly.
