A technique used to treat muscle immobility and pain, by relaxing contracted, tight muscles. Fascia is a thin, strong and elastic type of connective tissue that wraps around most structures of the body. When it becomes restricted due to trauma or postural changes the muscle tension can cause pain and restrict range of motion. By releasing this tension through massage and trigger point therapy, we can reduce the pain and increase our range of motion. Trigger points (muscle knots) form as a result of trauma to the muscle fibers within the skeletal muscle. This could be due to direct trauma, sports injury or repetitive strain injury. Working out these trigger points along with chiropractic adjustments can help restore our body’s overall function.
