Trigger Point Therapy Treatment:

Quick Info:      Trigger points are hyper-irritable electrically active palpable nodules in the taut bands of muscle fibre and fascia of muscle tissue.   Activation of trigger points can be caused by:  1) Acute or chronic overloading of a muscle or muscle fascia surrounding it.   2) Referral activation from other trigger points.   3) Disease and/or pschological distress   4) Direct trauma to the area of body.(eg trauma from car crash)   5) Health issues (eg. smoking)   6) Infections.

When I am doing a trigger point treatment, I firstly identify and then deactivate these trigger points by applying a strong direct pressure for a short period of time.   I also stretch and elongate the muscle fibres, in which the trigger points are clustered by, using deep longitudinal strokes( called rolfing), cross fibre frictioning, shiatsu, acupressure and muscle energy techniques.
