Trigger Points

Trigger points are naturally distributed across our bodies; however, it is only when they become irritable and we start to experience pain or discomfort that we notice them!

These points are palpable nodules of taught muscle fibres which develop through muscular overload, imbalance, trauma or injury.

They can result in the referral of pain to different areas of the body; did you know that we can experience headaches, facial and jaw pain from active trigger points in our trapezius muscle?

Treatment includes the application of pressure as well as a variety of exercises and stretches to target and relieve areas of muscle tightness and spasm.
