Description

Trigger Point Therapy - 1 day – with Richard Hogg - Edinburgh

Course Cost - £125

This workshop provides an introduction to the identification and treatment of Trigger Points. A Trigger Point is best described as an area of hypersensitivity in a muscle from which impulses travel to the central nervous system, giving rise to referred pain. The point from which the pain arises is known as the Trigger Point. Causes of trigger points are many and varied - stress, injury, overuse, chemicals, alcohol, etc.

When trigger points are active, muscles remain tight, can restrict blood flow and cause nerve compression, which keeps the area in a pain-spasm-pain cycle. There are many ways of treating trigger points - one of the most effective is the pressure technique that you will be shown, followed by a passive stretch.
