Trigger Points is the release of the myofascia. The fascia is the soft tissue that covers structures, organs, muscles, nerves and vessels and in turn is covered by the myofascia. The myofascia can become stressed form overuse or trauma and can adhere together. Trigger point therapy is a skill used by the therapist to reduce the build up of muscle stiffness and tenderness, and ease the contracted muscle.
Anyone and everyone. This can be a painful process but the results are overwhelming. The therapist will work on the trigger point, pain will be felt but it will then disperse. Migraine and cluster headaches, low back pain and neck pain respond well with good success to Trigger Point therapy.
