What is trigger point therapy?



Trigger point therapy is a neuromuscular therapy designed to speed up recovery from injury, correct muscular imbalances and relieve pain. Your physiotherapist will stretch the muscle and then apply pressure to areas of muscle tightness or ‘knots’. This helps to relive muscle tension and promote healing.


Trigger point therapy helps to decrease tension and impovers the re-alignment of muscle fibres to impove circulation.Above: Trigger point therapy helps to decrease tension and impovers the re-alignment of muscle fibres to impove circulation.



How does trigger point therapy help?



Inflammation occurs when a muscle is injured. The body recognises this and this causes pain which makes you protect the muscle to prevent further damage. The pressure of trigger point therapy ‘reprograms’ the neuromuscular system so that pain decreases. This encourages the muscles to return to their normal state. This promotes healing as the inflammation decreases and the individual experiences reduced pain and tightness.


There are a number of trigger point areas situated around the upper back and neck area which are associated wth poor posture.Above: There are a number of trigger point areas situated around the upper back and neck area which are associated wth poor posture.
