• Non-invasive and drug-free
  • Can be used on a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions
  • Can be used alone or in combination with other treatments
  • May reduce the need for medication or surgery
  • Can improve overall physical function and quality of life.


The trigger point is a taut band of skeletal muscles inside a muscle group. Trigger points are tender to the touch and can refer pain to distant parts of the body. You may have regional, persistent pain resulting in a decreased range of motion in the affected muscles.

Trigger point therapy is a soft-tissue treatment that helps release tense, painful knots in your muscles and fascia (web of connective tissue).


  • Pain relief
  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved muscle flexibility
  • Improved tissue mobility

Inflammation occurs when a muscle is injured. The body recognizes this and causes pain which makes you protect the muscle to prevent further damage. The pressure of trigger point therapy ‘reprograms’ the neuromuscular system so that pain decreases. This encourages the muscles to return to their normal state. This promotes healing as the inflammation decreases and the individual experiences reduced pain and tightness.


Trigger point therapy can be beneficial for conditions including:

  • Muscle injury
  • Muscle tightness
  • Carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Repetitive strain injury


  1. Theragun
  2. Trigger releases ball
  3. Foam roller

 In general, these have been known to:

  • Reduce pain.
  • Increase blood flow.
  • Break up scar tissue.
  • Decrease lactic acid.
  • Release muscle spasms.
  • Increase lymphatic flow.
  • Improve the range of motion.
  • Improve body awareness.

Start with only a few knots at a time, the most painful area being first. The idea is to trap the knot in the muscle with the ball and apply gently to medium pressure until the painful sensation has faded.


  1. Reduce Muscle Soreness
  2. Eliminate Tension and Tightness
  3. Increase Flexibility
  4. Improve Blood Circulation
  5. Cultivate Relaxation
