A trigger point is tightly contracted tissue affecting a small area in the muscle. This isolated contraction cuts off blood supply further exacerbating the problem. Trigger Points can cause intense pain and their symptoms can mimic many other conditions. Trigger Points can cause headaches, neck and jaw pain, low back pain, carpal tunnel symptoms, and joint pain. Trigger Point Therapy focuses on releasing this tension that can cause localized pain and/or referral pain to other areas of the body.
