Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are area known as "knots" or "muscular adhesion's" in a muscle. When a "knot" develops it can radiate pain or discomfort to other areas of the body. For example, a headache could be from a knot in the trapezius muscle in your neck, or you could have symptoms of sciatica but it could be a knot in your gluteus muscles. With thorough assessment trigger points can be treated. Trigger point therapy is a technique integrated into a treatment used the help break down a knot and decrease pain or discomfort in the body.

Research Study: Appraisal of treatment of the trigger points associated with chronic headaches. Relationship with anxiety and stress adaptation strategies.

Treatment by relaxation allows for a perceived increase in control of symptoms by the sufferer. Consequently, it reduces anxiety, improves the quality of life and behavioural responses to stress. In turn, the treatment improves the long-term prognosis for the headaches as well as the health of the sufferer in general. (Goffaux-Dogniez C, et al., Encephale. 2003 Sep-Oct;29(5):377-90
