Trigger point therapy is a hands-on therapy that focuses on removing the SOURCE of your pain. It can work very quickly. Usually, after only 1 or 2 treatments you will experience significant pain relief. Trigger point therapy is also called Neuro-muscular therapy because this therapy can also take pressure off nerves and it restores blood supply to the muscles and nerves.
Headaches, muscle cramps and spasms, shooting, stabbing and sharp pains are often caused by “tight spots” located in nerve and muscle intersections. These “tight” and very painful spots are known as trigger points. A careful and detailed nerve/muscle/spine exam is needed to locate trigger points (which are often hidden deep in the tissues) so that your specific treatment can begin. Stress, improper and inadequate exercise, poor diet and injury can all cause trigger points.
Trigger point therapy increases circulation and range of motion, takes pressure off the spine and significantly decreases pain. Though pain relief can be felt quickly, it usually takes 12 to 15 visits to fully re-train the nervous system. Trinity Wellness Center specializes in quickly locating and removing those pain causing areas without using drugs or surgery.
