What is Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger point therapy involves stimulating myofascial (muscle and connective tissue).
- These trigger points often refer pain sensations to other parts of the body, away from the trigger point.
- This “referred pain” is often dull, aching, or deep.
- For example, a problem with a trigger point in your back can result in an aching shoulder.
Trigger point therapy employs manual compression of the trigger point within the muscle fiber.
Muscle range of motion testing, postural evaluation, active stretching, and myofascial release are some of the techniques involved with trigger point therapy.
Myofascial trigger point therapy is a specific, clinical approach to the treatment of acute and chronic pain.
