What is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger Point Therapy deactivates painful points that maintain muscle spasm and shortened tissues. A trigger point causes "referred pain" in tissues supplied by nerves. Trigger points can occur as a result of muscle trauma (from car accidents, falls, sports- and work-related injuries, etc.), muscle strain from repetitive movements at work or play, postural strain from standing or sitting improperly for long periods at the computer, emotional stress, anxiety, allergies, nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, and toxins in the environment. A single event can initiate a trigger point.
