‘Trigger points’ are highly irritable localized areas of tenderness in a muscle which hurt when pressed. They are created when the muscle fibres become taut in areas, which in turn tighten the surrounding fascia, making it tight and inflexible.
Latent trigger points can accumulate over a lifetime and can be a major cause for joint stiffness and restricted range of motion as we age.They can sit inside muscles for years undetected. The constant muscle tension imposed by latent trigger points tends to overstress the muscles, sometimes causing potential joint damage. You may not know you have latent trigger points unless you put pressure on the appropriate area and feel the pain from it.
Regular massage treatments can help eliminate these potential inhibitors to your movement and sense of wellbeing, ensuring an optimum ability to move freely and without the pain caused from these hidden threats.
