Trigger Point Therapy is a method within physiotherapy that is designed to speed up recovery from injury by removing micro-cramps within the muscles. By putting pressure on areas of muscle tightness or ‘knots’, it helps so relieve muscle tension and promote healing. As a result, oxygen and nutrients have access again within the muscle fibers.
Trigger points are micro-cramps within muscles that feel like a painful hardening or “knots”. Due to the micro-cramps, a shortage of oxygen and blood flow is a result. The lack of oxygen and blood flow causes a hypersensitive area. By exerting pressure on this area, this often gives a nasty pain with possible radiation to other parts of the body. The cause of these trigger points is often overload or trauma (accident or surgery). However, too little exercise, stress or a poor diet can also be mentioned as the cause.
