Neuromuscular Therapy (also known as Trigger Point therapy) focuses on identifying trigger points, resolving them, and releasing the affected structures (usually muscles) along their natural range of motion and length.

Trigger points are irritable nodules often found in taut bands of muscle fibers – they can be painful when compressed (latent), or when the affected muscle is in motion or at rest (active).

These trigger points can be the cause of headaches and commonly appear after injuries or as a result of poor posture.

Neuromuscular Therapy is a technique that flushes these taut bands with finger tip pressure and releases the points to decrease pain.

While releasing trigger points it is common to have “referral pain” – this is when a sensation can be felt elsewhere in the body, sometimes described as “traveling”.

A common example of referral pain is when you experience a headache that travels from the base of your skull to your forehead or eye. This is caused when the upper trapezius muscle is fatigued, weak, or too tight due to working out, poor posture or injury. These taut bands develop trigger points: once the neck is stimulated, the trigger points produce referral pains.

Pain is a signal that something is wrong – often resulting in a headache. Listen to what your body is telling you: Change your posture! Get those tight muscles back to fighting form! Phone the professionals at knead!
