What is Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy?
Myofascial trigger points (commonly known as knots) are the most common cause of tight, aching and weak muscles. Healthy muscles don’t have trigger points in them. You develop them by overloading muscles (Heavy lifting), quick jerk (Whiplash), Frequent lifting (Lifting your Kids), tensing muscles (Stress), postural stress (Desk work), or by fatiguing muscles (Scrubbing / cleaning).
Remedial Massage & Myotherapy frequently gets rid of trigger points. If the ‘knots’ are stubborn, massage ‘calms’ the trigger point pain and stiffness but doesn’t actually get rid of the trigger point. This may be enough relief for the patient but if not, the best method of getting rid of stubborn trigger points is dry needling of the trigger point.
