Trigger point therapy

Understanding trigger point therapy

Also known as myofascial release, trigger point therapy is the process of applying gentle pressure on certain trigger points. A specialist in trigger point massage may either use hand pressure or even include a certain device to apply pressure on the selected trigger points. The shoulder, hip, and back usually have the most trigger points.
