Trigger Point Therapy

Taut tender bands found in a muscle are referred to as trigger points. Physicians Dr Travell and Dr Simons have defined a myofascial trigger point as a “hyperirritable spot in a skeletal muscle”. The spot is painful on compression and can give rise to characteristic referred pain and tenderness.

By applying pressure to these points, we can deactivate them, helping reduce pain and discomfort in the area.
