Trigger Point Release

Trigger points are the small gritty little knots we often feel in our shoulder and neck area. These can often become pain generating. Physiotherapy can help to relax the tissue around this area encouraging blood flow into the ‘knot’; this is often achieved by applied pressure to the area, encouraging the muscle to relax and increasing blood flow. As the ‘knot’ releases the muscle can then be stretched to increase elasticity or its flexibility, this often becomes reduced when trigger points form.
