Trigger Points

Due to overstressing or injuries muscles often form some kind of muscle “knots” called trigger points, which are sensitive spots in soft tissue that cause pain and tightness. They are not only painful when pressed on, but have also a special property called referred or reflective pain meaning that a trigger point in one muscle can create pain in another area. That way pain that originates from the painful stimulus in one place can then flare up all over the body. In the Trigger Point Therapy the chiropractor applies pressure to those points in order to deprive them of oxygen and cause a reflex relaxation of those tight muscles.kann.
