Trigger Point and Sports Massage

Trigger point release therapy is a form of Remedial Massage Therapy in which direct pressure is applied to specified points (trigger points) to bring about reduction in muscle tension and pain relief.

Each muscle has potential trigger points which can become activated by muscle overuse, trauma, inflammation, injury or nerve pain. These trigger points can cause pain over the muscle or refer pain to other areas.

Sports massage and trigger point release is for almost everyone. Muscles with active trigger points are always weaker than other muscles and are unable to move through their full range of motion. If left untreated, it can become chronic, causing long term effects on the muscles, joints, and ligaments.
