What is trigger point therapy?
Trigger point therapy focuses directly on points of pain or tension, applying concentrated pressure on knots or adhesions to encourage release and relief.
Inflammation occurs when a muscle is injured. The body recognises this and this causes pain which makes you protect the muscle to prevent further damage. The pressure of trigger point therapy ‘reprograms’ the neuromuscular system so that pain decreases. This encourages the muscles to return to their normal state. This promotes healing as the inflammation decreases and the individual experiences reduced pain and tightness.
