Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy releases ‘knots’ in muscles known as myofascial trigger points.
Trigger points produce localised tenderness and can give referred pain in other areas of the body. These points of tension are often responsible for unexplained pain throughout the body which causes a restricted range of movement and limits overall mobility and well-being. To address and alleviate these issues trigger point therapy uses isolated treatment to specific areas which include massage and dry needling in order to release the tight bands of muscle.
Trigger points can cause major discomfort and can seriously hinder your lifestyle. If you find yourself in this position, contact us today for a consultation.
