Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy is a method of chiropractic treatment that is typically used on patients with pain, discomfort, tension and “knots” in specific muscle groups and nerve sites of the body. These knots are called trigger points, and they often form in overused or injured muscles. At Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation this therapy is used for a variety of conditions.
Typically employed on patients with myofascial conditions or fibromyalgia, trigger point therapy focuses on patients’ individual trigger points, using static compression to gradually release the trigger points. Static compression involves pressure being applied in 10-second intervals to the area. This motion releases endorphins, which helps to release tension among the muscle fibers and nerves. It is a specialized technique designed to gradually release the existing trigger points and prevent the chronic tension and strain that creates these inflexible points.
Trigger points often present themselves with sharp pain, dull aches or sensations of pins and needs. Sometimes these points are latent and won’t be noticed until a stressor activates them. By combining chiropractic and physical therapy knowledge, our doctors are able to successfully treat and prevent painful trigger points and can help you restore your muscles to peak function. Schedule an appointment at our practice to treat and prevent these painful trigger points by calling 301-220-0496.
