Trigger points are tender spots on the body - usually within a muscle - which feel painful when touched and can sometimes feel sore throughout the day.
Trigger Point Release, or Ischemic Compression, is a therapeutic technique used in physical therapy whereby pressure applied by the clinician causes an interruption in the nerve signal to the muscle and a temporary reduction in the blood flow to that area. This releases trapped tight muscle and allows it to return to its normal resting tone. A resurgence of local blood flow will occur as the pressure is reduced, which aids the healing process of an injury.
We have highly qualified therapist situated across our London clinics who are skilled in this form of therapy to ensure you receive the very best of treatment to aid your recovery and relive your pain.
