Detection of trigger points treated by ischemic pressure points

Trigger points are points of muscular tension found in the muscles. Trigger points are often formed following a muscle injury, repetitive movement or poor posture. They can create pain directly at the point or some distance from the trigger point. So, for example, a trigger point in the neck can create frontal pain or headaches.

The trigger point technique consists of detecting points of muscular tension and then treating them by applying pressure with the fingers until muscle relaxation is felt. This technique helps eliminate muscle tension, joint pain and improve the range and capacity of movements.
