Trigger points can cause pain either at the site of where the trigger point is, or quite often refer pain to places that you may not have thought possible. For example, trigger points from behind your shoulder blade are the most common cause of front of shoulder pain and restriction, and trigger points in your buttock muscles are often the cause of the pain associated with sciatica.
Trigger points can also cause muscle weakness, muscle tightness or movement restriction. If you have undertaken a strengthening program in the past and your pain or strength showed either minimal or no improvement, it is very likely that trigger points are the cause of that lack of improvement.
Our clinicians have been treating trigger points since they graduated from University – and have thousands of hours of clinical experience in diagnosing and treating them, to obtain the best relief possible for all of their patients.
