TRIGGER POINT THERAPY GREENVILLE
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger Point Therapy is the act of releasing or softening a muscle knot to reduce or eliminate the knot and associated pain. The LeJeune Integrated Medical Centers’ experts may achieve this through pressure therapy or trigger point injections with a saline solution to help break up muscle adhesions. The process of relaxing the trigger points is actually quite simple, although the map of muscle trigger points and referred pain is complicated.
How are Trigger Points Formed?
Damage to muscles and connective tissues can prompt trigger points in several ways, such as:
- Sustained loading or carrying of items for a long period of time
- Poor posture
- Mental and emotional stress
- Direct injury
- Prolonged bed rest
