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
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.
