What is a Trigger Point Massage?
Trigger point massage therapy is a one of our many Las Vegas Massage techniques. The technique was developed by a Doctor seeking alternative methods for treating patients without the use of pharmacological means. This therapy involves applying precise pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.
Also, this kind of massage therapy is called myofascial trigger point therapy. Muscle knots are but just one of the many types of examples of the strain caused by sore or pulled muscles.
Who can suffer from the pain associated with trigger Points?
Whether you are an Olympic athlete that just won a gold medal or you love to gamble in Sin City, almost everyone will suffer from the debilitating effects caused by Trigger points.
Muscular areas of the body that are tender are trigger points. There are two basic types of trigger points: Active and Latent.
1). An Active trigger point can cause muscular pain. Furthermore, Active points will often transfer pain and tenderness to other areas of the body when the stress and movements of your body are transferred to these easily compromised muscle areas.
2). A Latent trigger point can only exhibit pain when compressed because they do not relate your pain to other areas of your body. Latent trigger points are likely to be one of the causes of stiff joints and usually do not pose a a restriction in your range of motion.
Are Trigger Points different than Acupressure Points?
Yes, they are different from acupressure points. Acupressure points are concentrations of energy or blockages of the body’s energy pathways. And Trigger points are physical phenomena that can be felt by touching.
So What Causes Trigger Points?
Trigger points have several causes. Some of the common causes are: birth trauma, an injury sustained in a fall or accident, poor posture, or overexertion.
What is the Purpose of Trigger Point Massage Therapy?
The purpose of trigger point therapy is to eliminate pain and indoctrinate your muscles to perform in a way that is conducive to living pain free. Generally, after a few treatments, the swelling and stiffness of neuromuscular pain is reduced. Your range of motion is increased, tension is relieved, and circulation, flexibility, and coordination will improve.
In addition , the pain caused by trigger points is an especially significant cause of disability and loss of time in the workplace. Trigger point therapy and other massage techniques are often performed together to form a customized treatment that will work for you. Las Vegas Massage therapists will help you improve your natural ability to maintain an active lifestyle.

How can I avoid the pain of Trigger Points
There are many ways to reduce or avoid the pain associated with trigger points.
Keep the following in mind when starting a stretching routine as part of a program of back exercises:
- Wear comfortable clothes that won’t bind
- Stretching should be pain free; do not force the body into difficult positions
- Move into the stretch slowly and avoid bouncing, which may actually tear muscles
- Lay on a clean, flat surface that is large enough to move around on freely
- Hold stretches long enough (20-30 seconds) to allow muscles or joints to become loose
- Repeat the stretch, generally 5-10 times
If you already have low back pain or neck pain, it is best to check with your physician or physical therapist to discuss whether the aforementioned neck, shoulder, and lower back pain exercises should be done.
