Trigger Point Therapy

 

 

Trigger points are exquisitely painful knots in an already taut band of muscle. They are sore to the touch, but when active will refer pain elsewhere in the body. For example, headaches are often the result of active trigger points in neck muscles.

In certain muscles, trigger points can be the hidden cause of dizziness, nausea or even tearing of the eyes. Toothache, when there is no obvious sign of decay, and unexplained jaw pain may well be the result of trigger points.

Trigger Point Therapy uses knowledge of predictable pain referral patterns to find and deactivate the trigger points which are the sources of the pain.
