Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy
We have trigger points all over our body. A trigger point by definition is a tight area within a muscle that can cause pain in another part of the body. For example, a tight point in your back might cause pain in your neck. Trigger point therapy is meant to target those places in your body where you are tight to alleviate pain in other areas.
At the end of our classes at Root, you might notice that we always stretch and foam roll. This is the time of the class when one of our trainers is available to help guide each participant to alleviate any specific trigger point pain they might be feeling.
Trigger point therapy is a great way to alleviate chronic pain or soreness that arises from your workout or even your daily life. But we understand that you are not always going to be available to attend a class to get assistance for your pain. That is why we at Root have decided to host a Trigger Point Therapy class! Yep, you heard right. Each month we are going to offer Trigger Point classes that talk about the importance of trigger point therapy and inform the participants how to treat specific parts of the body. Our focus for our first class, which takes place NEXT WEEK, is the neck and shoulders. Feeling pain in these areas could be caused by how you sleep, stand or even sit during your day to day life, in addition to during your workouts. The classes are only $15 and space is limited, so sign up today!
