Trigger point therapy has been extremely effective in relieving pain and dysfunction with immediate results, when involved in the following conditions:
Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Sometimes massage and trigger point therapy are performed together. Trigger point therapy is also called myofascial trigger point therapy. It was developed by Dr. Janet Travel in the United States in the 1940s.
Trigger points are areas of tenderness in a muscle. There are two basic types of trigger points: active and latent. Active trigger points cause muscular pain and will refer pain and tenderness to another area of the body when pressure is applied. Latent trigger points only exhibit pain when they are compressed, they do not refer pain to other areas of the body. Latent trigger points are believed to be one of the causes of stiff joints and restricted range of motion of old age. Trigger points may be associated with myofascial pain syndromes or Fibromyalgia. Trigger points are very common. They are also referred to as muscle knots. The pain caused by trigger points may be the largest cause of disability and loss of time in the workplace.
