What Is Trigger Point Therapy?

A trigger point is a painful area in a muscle that occurs when you push on it or what most people refer to as a knot. You’ve probably noticed that bit of the muscle when massaging your tense shoulders that doesn’t feel quite right and hurts. Trigger point therapy is a commonly used technique in manual therapy to alleviate pains caused by knotted muscles. The trigger point is identified by careful palpation of the muscle from its origin to its insertion. When a sensitive trigger point feels pain without being touched, this is one of the most common causes of muscular discomfort.

The tightness in the muscle and fascia that you would usually get as a knot in the muscle can be relieved using this type of soft tissue therapy. Trigger point therapy may be achieved through various techniques, including soft tissue treatment, deep tissue massage, dry needling, and ischemic pressure.
