There’s a powerful alternative treatment that may be able to help you get the relief you deserve – Trigger Point Therapy. This technique has the potential to provide a long-term solution to your chronic pain, and you owe it to yourself to learn more about it.
Trigger Points -What Are They?
Trigger points are small, tight muscle fibers that can cause significant pain and discomfort when activated. They can develop as a result of a variety of factors, including injury, poor posture, overuse, or stress. These knots can form in any muscle group, but they’re most commonly found in the neck, shoulders, back, and hips.
When a trigger point is activated, it can cause referred pain, meaning the pain is felt in a different part of the body from the actual trigger point. For example, a trigger point in your neck can cause pain that radiates down your arm, or a trigger point in your back can cause pain in your legs. The pain can be sharp or dull, and it can range from mild to severe, depending on the location and severity of the trigger point.
What is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger Point Therapy is a non-invasive, manual technique that involves identifying and releasing trigger points. The technique involves applying pressure to the trigger point using various manual techniques such as massage, stretching, and myofascial release. The pressure applied causes the trigger point to release, which in turn relieves pain, improves range of motion, and reduces muscle tension.
What Conditions Can be Treated with Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger Point Therapy is highly effective in treating a variety of conditions, including headaches, neck pain, back pain, and sciatica. Some studies have shown it to be beneficial in managing fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, and other chronic pain conditions.
One of the advantages of Trigger Point Therapy is that it’s a natural, drug-free alternative to traditional pain management treatments. Trained physical therapists can also develop treatment to help retrain the muscles to prevent relapses and can be used as a preventative measure to avoid the development of trigger points.
