Pay Attention To Your BodyPrint
It is important to pay attention to the responses our bodies produce when stressed or in pain and to follow-up with stretching, relaxation and other exercises which help to reduce discomfort and tenderness. In addition, strengthening and resistance exercises to build and tone the muscles, along with proper nutrition and sleep will produce noticeable benefits.
The goals of trigger point therapy are to reduce pain and stiffness, restore function, increase range of motion and improve strength, posture and balance.
