Experience the sensation of trigger point massage. Stafford Physiotherapy Centre is offering this technique as part of a pain management and hands-on treatment plan. By focusing on specific areas of built-up tension, we aim to reduce pain in a lasting way. We can also teach you how to do this at home.

The Importance of Trigger Point Therapy

The current understanding of trigger point therapy involves an awareness of where the body carries stress, strains, and discomfort. Below are some common causes of this build-up:

  • Individual injuries can cause an adjustment in posture and muscle use as your body compensates. These adjustments build up the strain in specific parts of your muscles near the bone.
  • Repetitive strain can also cause this. Repeated motions or exertions result in an overuse that harms the muscle and reduces your body’s ability to release the tension.
  • Muscle weakness or tightness can also prompt your body to engage muscle groups unnecessarily. This may gradually add more systemic pain that needs release.

Some Approaches to Trigger Point Massage

Trigger point massage therapy does not need to be used in isolation. There are several other methods that can be incorporated for a holistic approach:

  • Clinical Pilates – The benefits in terms of strength and core stability is important. Once the tension has been released with trigger point massage, clinical Pilates can assist with re-ordering your body’s posture, strengthening weak muscles and reduce future instances of trigger point tension build up.
  • Pelvic Floor – For those encountering bladder issues, a consultation and follow up focused on a pelvic floor regimen can provide valuable and lifelong assistance.
  • General Physiotherapy – We combine decades of experience with ongoing training to keep up-to-date with the latest techniques and developments. Your physiotherapist will work with you to develop a regimen aimed at reducing recurrent pains on a long-term basis.
