Trigger Points

What is a Trigger Point?
Trigger points are tight and tender congested muscle spots filled with toxins and waste. They are hypersensitive parts of the muscle where there is decreased circulation, increased muscle contraction and spasm, and increased nerve sensitivity ranging from sharp pain to dull ache. Trigger points develop from:

a) overuse of a muscle
b) stress
c) trauma or accident
d) not stretching or
e) improper stretching before physical activity.

Latent trigger points can also lay dormant susceptible to spasm if not located and treated. These may not cause pain initially, but a massage with Healthy Body Ball simulates a therapeutic massage by detecting and releasing trigger points so prior to becoming problematic trigger points.
