Trigger points are localised muscle hardenings in the skeletal muscles that are locally sensitive to pressure and from which transmitted pain can emanate. Around 80 to 90 % of pain syndromes are said to be due to such muscle hardenings.
Trigger point treatment is used to eliminate acute or chronic localised muscle pain. Through the concentrated pressure on the pain points (trigger point), a relaxation of the muscle region can first be achieved. Subsequent stretching of the area around the muscle can relieve pain in the muscles and release blockages.
Indication: for acute or chronic pain conditions of the muscels.
