Trigger Point Massage
Trigger points are a spot in your muscle that is tighter than the rest of the muscle. A trigger point can be caused by injury, postural imbalances, or an number of things. Trigger points are tricky because they can send referred pain to different parts of the body. An example of a trigger point would be a tight spot in your lower back that causes referred pain to your upper back, shoulder or neck.
Because the pain can be referred, it is often difficult to find out where pain is originating on your own. A good massage therapist can help locate the trigger points that might be referring pain to different parts of your body. Our therapists can provide trigger point massage to help relieve pain and imbalances.
