Trigger points are reduced muscle fibers that are painful spots in the muscle. Here body waste accumulates, which is supplied with blood and causes significant pain.
Chronic overuse, injury, or trauma of the muscles
Continual physical or mental tension
Long-lasting continuous movements
Several triggers in the same muscle lead to complete tension, which limits the muscle’s freedom of movement, and, due to the trigger points, a pain trigger point is formed.
The trigger points can be limited and treated effectively.
A trigger point treatment can be applied, among other things, for:
Pain in the head, neck, or shoulder area
Pain in the hand and elbow (e.g. tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome)
Back pain (e.g. lumbago, sciatica)
Pain in the hip/knee joint
Pain in the calf/foot area (e.g. heel spur, Achilles tendonitis)
Poor posture and movement restrictions due to chronic muscle tension
