Trigger Point Therapy

PARTICULARLY EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING OVERUSE INJURIES

Trigger Point Therapy helps relieve pain, stiffness and restricted motion by releasing contraction knots, which are also known as “Trigger Points”, that are located in the muscle tissue. These contraction knots form as a result of accidents or repetitive injuries, muscle overload, disuse or misuse of muscles, as a side effect of other physical conditions or illnesses, and much more.

Often times, pain may be felt in one location but the root of the pain lies in another. Headaches are a classic example of this type of pain, known as “referred pain”. Contraction knots in the upper back and shoulders are frequently the cause of chronic headaches, and treatment of this area proves particularly effective in providing relief.
