What is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger Point Therapy is an advanced treatment that intends to alleviate pain by removing trigger points in the body. It specifically releases constricted areas in the muscles, relieving the pain. The therapy is done with the patient’s active participation by breathing deeply and identifying the discomfort’s intensity and exact location.
What is a Trigger Point?
Trigger points, also known as muscle knots or trigger sites, are focal, discrete, and hyperirritable spots of pain and spasms in the skeletal muscle.
Trigger points develop when muscle fibers are strained due to a number of reasons, such as repetitive microtrauma or acute trauma, prolonged and overuse muscles, exposure to cold, etc. It is one of the most common illnesses affecting the muscles. They can be very painful and often trigger sensations of pain, tingling, or numbness in other parts of the body—hence the name.
Why Trigger Point Therapy?
Since trigger points cause pain and discomfort in other parts of the body, it is important to pay attention to them. If left untreated, they may get worse and might affect even farther points in the body. Thus, getting a massage or therapy curing trigger points will relieve all other distant pains throughout the body.
Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy
