Trigger Point Release: Definition & Treatment

What is Trigger Points?

Trigger points are palpable knots in the muscle tissue. Sometimes called myofascial trigger points (MTrP), their presence can cause pain and muscle shortening or muscle spasms.  These hyper-irritable spots can cause referred pain, or pain that is further away from the actual knot. To relieve pain from a trigger point, it will have to be released. 

How to Release Trigger Point?

To release a trigger point, a practitioner will palpate areas on the body that feel stiff with light manual pressure. Once a trigger point is identified, manual pressure is applied, along with stretching to release any tension within the muscle. Trigger points can be release at home using ASTR tools.
