Trigger Point Therapy is a form of remedial massage. It works by applying direct pressure to particular areas of the sore muscle. Pressing on the bit that hurts may sound like torture but it really does work. Better still, the discomfort is only temporary.
Finding the Trigger Point
Every one of your muscles contains trigger points. These are activated by overuse, trauma, infection and inflammation. Here's the tricky bit. The 'angry' trigger point may cause pain in situ or in a completely different part of the body.
The job of the trigger point therapist is to pinpoint the trigger point and treat it and relieve the associated pain.
Prevention is Better than Cure
Your first step is to find a qualified trigger point therapist in your area and book a consultation. Allow time for this as the therapist will need to go through your medical history and carry out a physical examination. This will determine how many sessions are needed to fix the problem.
Many people choose to continue with 'maintenance' sessions, especially if they are prone to muscle pain or work in a high-risk industry. As they say, prevention is better than cure!
