Whether trigger points within muscles become activated by injury, overuse, inflammation, electrolyte imbalance or infection, once provoked they can cause a host of issues, including muscle weakness, restricted mobility or tenderness in the affected muscle as well as referred pain to other areas of the body.
As an effective hands-on technique, trigger point therapy is designed to alleviate constricted areas of muscle tightness that are causing discomfort and referred pain. During trigger point therapy, direct pressure is systematically and repeatedly applied to specific tender spots within a muscle and then released. While patients may be aware of certain trigger points themselves, with muscle palpation by a skilled trigger point therapist, others may become apparent. Although, one treatment can significantly reduce pain, to naturally manage the pain and stress of chronic injuries receiving trigger point therapy on a regular basis can be quite helpful.
