Why Trigger Point Therapy

For a more comprehensive explanation please check out Dr. Sasha’s Blog “Why Trigger Point?”.

Essentially, when you have sore or tight muscles, it is often from an abundance of lactic acid trapped in the muscle.

Lactic acid is a by-product from an over-worked or tight muscle – whether that be from exercise or muscle imbalances – and this is what can lead to chronic muscle pain. Trigger Point Therapy involves applying a specific amount of sustained pressure to a sore or tight muscle for 15-20 seconds, flushing lactic acid and other toxins out of the muscle.
