The primary purpose of trigger point therapy is to reduce the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles. Trigger points are identified by gently pressing on the surface of the skin, sensing the texture of the underlying muscle.
A trigger point is like a knot the size of a pea, buried deep in the muscle tissue. It is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscular activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle as a result of physical, chemical or emotional stress.
Our practice employs many physical therapy methods, including ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and cold laser therapy to complement our other techniques.
