Trigger point therapy uses various techniques to eliminate painful knots of tissue that can develop in the body. Although trigger points are most often associated with the back, they can also develop all over the body, including in the shoulders, neck, arms and legs. Trigger points can lay dormant for some time, but when they are irritated, they can cause symptoms that include sharp pain, throbbing, tingling or other neurological effects that may disappear quickly, or linger for weeks or months at a time.
