What is Trigger Point Therapy?
The first thing we have to do is define what is a TRIGGER POINT:
A Trigger Point (TrP) is a hyperirritable spot, a palpable nodule in the taut bands of the skeletal muscles' fascia. Direct compression or muscle contraction can elicit many different responses, most of my patients have pain at either the point of the trigger point or pain referred from the trigger point to another area of the body
Trigger points develop in the myofascia, mainly in the center of a muscle belly where the motor endplate enters (primary or central TrPs). Those are palpable nodules within the tight muscle at the size of 2-10 mm and can demonstrate at different places in any skeletal muscles of the body. We all have TrPs in the body. Can be present even in babies and children, but their presence does not necessarily result in the formation of pain syndrome. When it happens, TrPs are directly associated with myofascial pain syndrome*, somatic dysfunction, psychological disturbance and restricted daily functions
What causes the myofascial trigger points:
-Injury- from car accidents, sport incidents and falls
-Quick Movements- Twisting the body wuickly to avoid or look at something
-Change in regular activity. Dr Julian always is busy on a monday after weekend warriors doing a years worth of gardening or spring cleaning :P
-Sustained postures. Prolonged sitting, study ( thats right students you have a right to whinge)
