Why Does Myotherapy Help?
Often pain in the neck is caused by myofascial trigger points. Trigger points, are painful spots in the fascia and skeletal muscle. They often feel like lumps in the muscle which is why most people refer to them as knots. These knots can cause pressure on nerves and produce pain. Myotherapy is able to release the trigger points and increase the blood flow to prevent them from reoccurring.
