About this Event

Are you a qualified sports, massage or physiotherapist? Are you currently a student studying in any of these fields? Are you in interested in trigger point therapy? Then this could be a workshop you would greatly benefit from!

Sports therapists, massage therapists and physiotherapists will come across and treat come trigger points and muscular tension on a very regular basis. A build up of muscular tension and/or trigger points can occur for many different reasons. Some of the most common reason include injury, overuse and poor posture. Trigger points are hyperirritable areas of contracted muscle fibres that form a palpable nodule. When trigger points are left untreated they can result in an array of negative effects such as chronic pain, reduced range of movement and reduced muscular function.

Trigger point therapy is a popular form of manual treatment used to directly treat trigger points. It is a highly effective technique that can often provide an immediate relief of symptoms.Trigger point therapy involves application of direct pressure to the trigger point which can break-up the adhesive collagen fibre connections within the active trigger point. The addition of soft tissue release techniques such as effleurage, petrissage and active release can help to further reduce pain, muscular tension and improve range of movement.

Massage.physio.co.uk are providing the trigger point therapy workshop aiming to give you the theory and practical skills required to feel confident performing trigger point therapy in a safe and effective manner. The workshop will begin with an interactive presentation focusing on the theory and prescription of trigger point therapy including contraindication, indications and benefits. The workshop will also include a practical element where you will have the opportunity to practice performing trigger point therapy with the guidance of our experienced therapists.
