Myofascial trigger point therapy is a safe way to help with muscle pain and improve range of motion.  Are you suffering from:

  • Migraines & Headaches

  • Bursitis
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Stress
  • Plantar Fasciitis, or
  • Chronic Muscular Tension and Pain?

Here’s relief. Even the pain of surgery or fibromyalgia can be addressed through myofascial trigger point therapy.
 
It’s a safe and drug free way to relieve the symptoms of these and many forms of pain related to muscles and body mechanics dysfunctions. 
 
How do you know if your persistent pain or limited muscle motion is related to myfascial causes?  It’s simple: if you feel better after treatment, the answer is ‘yes’!

How Does Trigger Point Therapy Relieve Pain?

Feeling good has never been easier.

Trigger Point Therapy, also known as myofascial trigger point therapy, involves stimulating myofascial (muscle and connective tissue) trigger points that often refer pain sensations to other parts of the body. This means pain is experienced in areas located away from the trigger point.  The ‘referred pain’ is often dull, aching, or deep.  A problem with a trigger point in a neck muscle, for example, can result in wrist pain similar to that of carpal tunnel syndrome.

The Goals of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy

Healing-HandsThe goals of myofascial trigger point therapy include reducing pain, improving muscle range of motion, and determining (and thereby helping mitigate) any perpetuating factors that are keeping you in pain.  Body mechanics at work or at home, posture, and poor nutrition are examples of perpetuating factors.
  
Myofascial trigger point therapy is an
interactive pain management protocol wherein postural evaluations and muscular pain patterns are taken into account.  Trigger point compression, myofascial release, and stretching exercises relating to targeted muscles are involved with this therapy.

Traditional Massage vs. Trigger Point Therapy?

Temple-MassageWhile some of the goals of massage therapy and trigger point therapy are similar or shared, there are significant differences.
  
Whether choosing traditional massage
therapy or trigger point therapy, every treatment session is individually tailored for you. Gentle touch and deep tissue work may be involved within the same session, dependent upon its appropriateness and/or your preferences. 

The goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment, within a clinical setting, to promote healing and relaxation.  Cancer-sensitive massage is also available.

Hand MassageTrigger Point Therapy typically employs manual compression of the trigger point after it is located within the muscle fiber. This therapy does not involve the use of lotions or oils. Instead, pain patterns are identified, and the involved muscles are treated.  Muscle range of motion testing, postural evaluation, active stretching, and myofascial release are some of the techniques and/or processes involved with trigger point therapy.  It is a more specific and clinical modality in its approach to acute and chronic pain treatment. 

Massage Therapy helps release chronic muscular tension and pain, improves circulation, increases muscle range of motion, reduces mental and physical fatigue and stress, promotes faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improves posture, and even aids in reducing blood pressure.  While it creates an overall sense of well-being, it isn’t necessarily as specific as trigger point therapy.  It is typically a less interactive form of treatment because one of its main goals is relaxation.  With traditional massage, oils and lotions can aid in releasing muscle tension and creating a feeling of relaxation.
