Trigger Point Therapy

Posted on July 11th, 2014 by Shari´ Parks

Trigger Points are extremely common. They can become a painful part of everyone’s life. The range of pain varies to incapacitating pain to restrictions of movement. It is thought that the pain producing trigger’s increase with age. As activity decreases or less strenuous in later years, individuals are more likely to be aware of stiffness and restricted motion in the body.

Trigger Point Therapy is an effective technique to alleviate chronic pain and dysfunction. Active trigger points exacerbate several syndromes as well as joint, muscle or visceral pain.

A few examples are:
* Headaches
* Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
* Fibromyalgia

It can be used in a variety of settings: a fulling clothed chair massage or an unclothed table session with oil.
The next time you visit your Massage Therapist inquire about this treatment and how it might work for you in your treatment sessions.
