What Is Trigger Point Therapy?

Trigger point therapy is a specialized type of massage therapy that targets your trigger points, or the area you are experiencing pain. For instance, you may have lower back pain resulting in problems with your legs. If this is the case, we will massage the center around your trigger point to ease the pressure.

The entire concept of trigger point therapy revolves around the fact that waste products build around your nerve clusters and stimulate nerve pain and other nerve-related symptoms. Sometimes, these symptoms spread beyond the initial site of the pain because the waste can cause bands or nodules that press on your soft tissue. The massage breaks up the clusters to ease your symptoms.

What to Expect

During your initial appointment, we will ask you to fill out a medical history report. This information will help us to determine if trigger point therapy is safe for you based on your current and previous medical conditions.

To begin treatment, we start on a sterilized table and patients may go through breathing exercises first. Next, we identify the root of your problem based on your evaluation. Through your trigger point therapy, your massage therapist performs techniques that deeply stimulate the muscles around your trigger points. After the procedure, you should have minimal discomfort from the treatment itself; however, you may need several sessions to feel the full benefits of trigger point therapy.
