The Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy for Headache Sufferers

The Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy for Headache Sufferers

Trigger points are tight areas within a muscle that cause pain in other areas of the body. Typically, they’re located in your skeletal muscles but can cause pain throughout your entire body. For example, a trigger point in your back may produce pain in your neck and head.

Though trigger points are sometimes the result of trauma (such as a sports injury or car accident) they can occur naturally over time.

What is Trigger Point Therapy?

Trigger point therapy can be thought of as an advanced form of physical therapy. Calculated cycles of pressure and release help locate the trigger point and eventually reduce tension in the muscles of the neck and jaw.

The Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy

Fewer Headaches

Because many trigger points are located in the neck and upper back, they can cause frequent headaches. When the trigger point is relaxed, it’s not as likely to cause headaches.

Decreased Pain

Because trigger points can cause pain in areas of the body far from where they live, they can cause radiating pain throughout a person’s entire body. Particularly in people with chronic pain, trigger point therapy can naturally reduce your pain levels.

Improved Mobility

By relaxing tight areas in the muscle, trigger point therapy relieves pain and can help you regain your mobility, particularly in your neck and jaw.
