What is Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are also known as muscle “knots” which are tight area within muscle tissue. These spots can be sore, painful, and surprisingly, very common. Trigger point therapy we use a specialized type of massage to reduce neck and back pain. The goal is to reduce the tight muscle tension in these muscles. The use of trigger point therapy pinpoints the specific area that is being treated, that way you are able to resolve your pain without the use of drugs and over the long term more successfully. The use of trigger point therapy focuses on certain areas that are called trigger points. These are areas of the body where you can release muscle tension and experience a flow of chemicals called acetylcholine.
By focusing on these trigger point areas with massage, we are able to release the excess chemicals that are stored in the muscle fibers. When these chemicals are in the muscle fibers, this is what causes those muscles to contract or be tense. The sustained tension over the long term is where pain and inflammation are caused. Trigger point therapy as a part of a holistic regenerative medicine program offers a safe treatment that is drug-free and without invasive surgery.
The conditions treated using trigger point therapy are quite varied. We use this treatment modality here at Advanced Medical Solutions for alleviating pain for neck injuries, lower back pain, shoulder injuries, knee pain, joint pain, and fibromyalgia. The goal of this type of therapy is to help you manage your pain by pinpointing the injured area.
This type of treatment is beneficial for individuals who have chronic pain due to injuries, such as sports injuries or repetitive use syndromes. This includes carpal tunnel syndrome and rotator cuff syndrome. Other medical issues that can be resolved with trigger point therapy include muscle pain that you want to treat without painkilling drugs.
