Trigger Point Therapy
How it works
Trigger points are discrete, focal, hyperirritable spots located in the skeletal muscles, they produce pain locally and in a referred pattern and often accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders.
Acute trauma or repetitive microtrauma may lead to the development of stress on muscle fibers and the formation of trigger points. Clients may have regional, persistent pain resulting in a decreased range of motion in the affected muscles, these include muscles used to maintain body posture, such as those in the neck, shoulders, and pelvic girdle.
Trigger points may also manifest as tension to cause headaches, decreased range of motion in the legs, and lower back pain.
