Beschreibung der Methode "Trigger point massage"
Was ist „Trigger point massage”?
In the trigger point massage we look for the trigger points in order to process them with pressure and "milking" short massage strokes. When the trigger point dissolves, the pain can also go. Trigger point massage can be combined very well with other treatments.
What are trigger points?
Trigger points in the musculature, also called myogeloses, are hypersensitive areas in hardened muscle strands, glued fasciae or too much stressed muscle. They are (pressure) painful and usually radiate the pain to other parts of the body. The trigger points and the resulting pain are caused by
- Overuse of the muscles during prolonged tension
- longer lasting uniform movements
- in case of malposition
- for athletes also due to lack of regeneration between two training sessions.
Why a trigger point massage?
Trigger points disturb the flow of body fluids (blood, lymph) as well as nerve impulses and vital energy in the tissue. Muscle tension increases more and more. The patient often gets into a cycle of tension and pain. A regular therapy in the form of a trigger point massage or trigger point therapy or Rolfing can help at this point.
