Trigger Point Therapy

trigger point image 4What is Trigger Point Therapy?

Trigger points are sore spots that occur in a muscle. They are big enough to feel and most people know them as “muscle knots”.  Trigger points can be caused from poor posture, trauma or overuse. Trigger points lead to an increase in muscle tenderness and stiffness which decreases your range of motion.

Trigger point therapy uses pressure applied to the muscles to relieve pain and correct areas of dysfunction in the body.trigger-point-therapy3
