Trigger Point Therapy & Myotherapy in Bondi

Trigger Point Therapy Massage in Bondi

Trigger points are hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in bands of muscle fibres. These can be acute sources of pain or latent, unnoticed by the client until pressure is applied by the practitioner. Trigger points are manifested as small contraction knots in the muscles, that control the state of contraction and active ones may cause muscle spasm and referred pain. Treatment consists of physical therapy, manipulation and stretching. A firm digital pressure is applied to specific points areas of a muscle that refers pain sensations to other parts of the body. These points may often be located in places different to where the client actually feels the pain.
