What are trigger points?
Trigger Point are small knots that occur in the muscles due to overload or injuries. These hard spots, also called nodes, are very (pressure) sensitive and can lead to other symptoms like neck pain, headaches, pain in the lower back, tennis elbows and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Self Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (abbreviation SMR = Self Myofascial Release) is used to relieve pain by stretching and applying pressure to these trigger points. The use of SMR ensures that the sore spots are less sensitive and tense, so that the problems that are a result of trigger points will disappear as well. Additionally, SMR also has a positive effect on your mobility and muscle quality.
