What is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger points are areas of muscle where the fibres are bunched together and irritated. Sometimes they can cause intense pain or a pinching sensation where the trigger point is located, or may produce a ‘referred’ pain that may be felt in another area of the body. Active trigger points or areas of extreme tightness can cause discomfort and muscle spasm until they are released, usually by firm pressure on the area.
