Everything You Need To Know About Trigger Points

What are Trigger Points?

Trigger points or ‘muscle knots’ are sensitive or achy spots in our soft tissue.These sore spots are quite common, especially around injuries, and can play a role in major back and neck pain.

Although it may feel like it, there are no actual knots under the skin. The usual explanation is that a trigger point is a small patch of tightly contracted muscle, afflicting a small patch of muscle tissue. That small patch of muscle can choke off its own blood supply, which causes more irritation and pain.

There are many possible explanations for persistent and unexplained aches and pains in the body, but trigger points and trigger point therapy offer some potential for relief.

What is Trigger Point Therapy?

Trigger point therapy provides relief through various techniques that rub or put pressure on trigger points. We at Bodyworks Bliss are skilled at diagnosing and managing muscular pain caused by trigger points.

We have found that most of our common aches and pains are caused by trigger points, or small contraction knots, in the muscles of the body. We work with our patients and cater for their specific needs while determining a treatment that will relieve the pain at its source.

Our Trigger Point Therapy reduces pain and helps heal the body using its natural anti-inflammatory properties. Our medical team uses Trigger Point Therapy as a natural way to heal arm, leg, lower back, and neck pain, as well as a range of other health issues.

Muscular Pain Matters

Muscular pain is a serious issue and can not be ignored. Even though aches and pains are common, they can play a key role in the onset of headaches/ migraines, as well as neck and low back pain. Trigger points can also complicate injuries and cause referral pain, which can negatively impact the healing process of an injury.
