Trigger Points is a sports injury clinic based in Ponteland, Northumberland. Established in 2010, it has already become a mainstay of the local community, providing guidance and treatment for people of all ages.
What are Trigger Points?
Myofascial trigger points are tiny contraction knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked.
The defining symptom of a trigger point is referred pain; that is, trigger points usually send their pain to some other site. The reason some conventional treatments for pain so often fail is they assume that the problem is at the place that hurts! Research has shown that trigger points are the primary cause of pain 75% of the time and are at least a part of nearly every pain problem.
