Trigger Point Therapy

What is Trigger Point Therapy?

Trigger points or “knots” are sensitive spots in the soft tissue, sometimes described as micro-cramps. Often felt as small nodules in the soft tissue, releasing sharp pains when under pressure or during palpation.

These Trigger Points can often be the cause of typical nagging lower back pain, neck pain, and upper back and shoulder aches.

If left untreated, these Trigger Points can become very painful, often leading to tension headaches and painful sciatic symptoms, sometimes eventually causing muscle dysfunction!!

To release these sharp painful nodules, we recommend Sports Massage and Trigger Point Therapy. This mostly consists of running and compressing into the Trigger Point, which while feeling incredibly painful will produce an amazing relief after!

Our Practitioners at The Treatment Room, are very experienced with working with muscle tension and Trigger Points, so feel free to contact us if you are in need of relieving those lower back pains or neck aches
