myofascial trigger point therapy

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (MTPT) is a specialized treatment for musculo-skeletal pain, also known as myofascial pain. "Myo" means muscle; "fascial" refers to the connective tissue that holds us together.  Myofascial pain can originate from trigger points in muscles and the fascia that is interwoven throughout the soft tissue.

Trigger points can be hypersensitive, tightened areas, referred to as taut bands and they can occur in muscles, tendons and ligaments. They may cause pain, tingling, burning, weakness and a variety of other symptoms. Often they will have a specific pain pattern called referred pain which means they may cause pain not only right where they are but in other areas as well.
