TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger Point Therapy is something that our myotherapists and remedial massage therapists specialise in. A Myofascial trigger point (MTrP) is a hyper-irritable spot found within a taut band of muscle or the muscles fascia. It is most commonly referred to as a ‘knot’.
Essentially part of the muscle stays contracted whilst the rest of the muscle relaxes. Our aim is to return the whole muscle to its normal resting length.
Releasing trigger points can:
Decrease local pain and referred pain
Improve muscle function
Lengthen muscle fibres
Promote healing to the area
