Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy

In the world of myotherapy, there’s a fascinating technique that often takes center stage when it comes to relieving stubborn muscle knots and discomfort—trigger point therapy. If you’re seeking targeted relief from muscle tension, aching knots, or even referred pain, this technique might just be your ticket to a more comfortable and pain-free life.

Understanding Trigger Points

Trigger points, often referred to as muscle knots, are tight and irritable spots within a muscle that can cause pain, discomfort, and even radiate pain to other areas of the body. These points develop due to overuse, injury, stress, poor posture, or other factors that create tension within the muscle fibres.

The Mechanics of Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy revolves around identifying and releasing these tight muscle knots. The goal is to deactivate these trigger points, enabling muscles to relax, improving blood circulation, and ultimately alleviating pain. Therapists use manual techniques, applying pressure, and occasionally specialised tools to locate and treat these specific points.

Seamless Integration with Myotherapy Techniques

Here at Western Myotherapy, we’re strong advocates of a holistic approach to wellness. That’s why we integrate trigger point therapy into our range of myotherapy techniques, including:

  1. Remedial Massage: By incorporating trigger point therapy into a remedial massage session, we enhance the treatment’s effectiveness. This approach tackles both surface-level and deep-seated muscle tension, providing relief that goes beyond the surface.
  2. Cupping: Pairing cupping therapy with trigger point therapy promotes increased blood flow to the area. This assists in releasing toxins, speeding up healing, and easing discomfort.
  3. Dry Needling: Dry needling, which involves thin needles, can effectively target trigger points that are otherwise hard to access.
