What is Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy?

MYO: muscle

FASCIA: connective tissue that wraps the muscles

TRIGGER POINT: hyper-irritable spot in a taut band of muscle which is capable of referring pain away from the trigger point

Based on the pioneering work of Drs. Janet G. Travell MD and David G. Simons MD, MTPT is a specialized type of bodywork which provides relief of muscular pain and increases range of motion through manual release of trigger points and lengthening of those shortened muscles through stretching. Additionally identification and correction of perpetuating factors is a key aspect to successful treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction.
