Trigger Point Therapy

Based on the extensive works of Dr Janet Travell and Dr David Simons, trigger point therapy involves a systematic de-activation of trigger points which are tight bands in the muscles, tendons or ligaments which refer pain to other areas. The treatment may be followed by stretches with ice, followed by heat and then movement. Trigger point work is often a part of Neuromuscular Therapy and is beneficial wherever chronic, aching pain is felt.
