This treatment can help relieve deep tissue problems that cause troubling ailments.
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes localised pain or pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. During other treatments areas of tightness and tenderness can be identified and these areas can then be worked upon and released via trigger point therapy.
