Common Trigger Point #7 — Shin Splints

All along the shin, but particularly in the upper third of the shin, are trigger points that can be sensitive even to the touch. Once these muscles become overused, the pain of shin splints appears.

Runners and weekend athletes are the most common to suffer from shin splints. Having a qualified massage therapist address this trigger point can ease the pain, so you can get back to the game.


Common Trigger Point #5 — Leg or Knee Pain

The lateral part of the leg contains a dominant muscle group that can be responsible for stiffness and fatigue in the upper leg but can also be a cause of “runner’s knee.”

Other people who may experience problems with trigger point #5 are bicyclists and horseback riders. A neuromuscular massage can relieve the pain associated with trigger point #5.
