Trigger Points are tender sensitive areas usually found in tight muscles. They can come about from any one of a number of causes, such as a trauma or accident, exposure to cold, muscle overuse or muscle imbalance. Any of these causes can be a reason for a muscle to contract and get tight. If it then stays contracted, rather than releasing as it should, one or more trigger points can develop.

Many common aches and pains are actually created by trigger points, as they may radiate, or refer, pain to other  areas of the body. They can also cause weakness and restricted range of motion. The symptoms of trigger points are frequently mistaken for other conditions.

Trigger Point Therapy is a general term used to describe a technique that specifically focuses on reducing the source of the pain created by Trigger Points. This is done by ‘deactivating’ any that are causing pain, or other sensations, such as headaches.  

Once a trigger point causing pain is located, a controlled pressure is applied to it until a resistance point is reached or the pain has reached a certain level on a pain scale that you will have discussed with me before the treatment begins. Pressure is maintained on the point until the tissues relax and/or the pain drops. This is repeated several times until the pain has reduced or gone and the muscles have relaxed.

This may sound like magic but it’s a powerful and effective technique. A variety of conditions can be caused or made worse as a result of trigger points, including low back pain, tight neck and upper back pain and all types of muscle pain, as well as limiting the easy movement of joints.  

I frequently incorporate Trigger Point Therapy into my treatments and it is also available as a single therapy treatment.
