Trigger point pain is one of the more common ailments that affect the muscles in the human body. A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other areas of the body. For example, a trigger point in the back may cause pain in the neck. The neck may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and severe or a dull ache. Trigger points are the result of muscle overuse or injury, and because the pains are associated with moving parts, they are commonly mistaken for arthritis.
Thankfully, relief can be found in the form of a trigger point massage. This type of massage is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. During a trigger point massage, the patient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
The result of trigger point massage is the elimination of toxins in the muscles and the release of invigorating endorphins. A significant decrease in pain is commonly found after just one treatment.
