Trigger Point Therapy is practiced by Remedial Massage Therapists to relieve a number of conditions, Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI) , Reduced Range of Movement (ROM) Temporal Mandible Joint Pain (TMJ) ,Torticollis ,Neck Shoulder and Lower Back Pain, Fibromyalgia , Headaches and Carpel Tunnel.
Palpation of trigger point causes a pattern of referred pain at rest and or on motion that is specific to that muscle. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache.
Trigger Point Therapy Australia is growing in popularity from its origins in the US. Developed in the 1940’s, Trigger Point Therapy is helping people with short-term pain as well as long-term chronic pain and conditions.
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
What type of pain can Trigger Point Therapy Australia treat?
The most common body parts suffering from pain requiring Trigger Point Therapy treatment include:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Joint Pain
- Muscle Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
Often injured muscles can’t perform their usual range of motion, so other muscles are recruited to do some of the work of the compromised muscle. The extra strain on the recruited muscles can cause trigger points to occur within them. It is therefore important that the compromised muscle is treated to protect surrounding muscles.
What are Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs)?
Myofascial pain can be caused by either a muscle injury or repetitive strain. After an injury, muscles often form trigger points similar to muscle knots that can cause pain and tightness. The pain can be located within trigger points but also as referred pain in other parts of the body.
