Trigger point therapy involves the application of gentle yet firm pressure to specific areas along the body known as pressure or trigger points. This pressure is provided by the hands of a skilled physical therapist trained in pressure point release.
Our professional team of therapists use specific techniques to relax and normalize trigger points within the fascia, which is a widespread fibrous tissue that encases your musculoskeletal structures. Fascia, which is normally flexible, is important for protecting things such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and nerves and helps them move together in a coordinated way. When things such as stress, injury, poor posture, repetitive movement, or poor nutrition are imposed on the body, the fascia can become stiff. Stiffness restricts the normal movement of the connective tissues beneath, leading to pain, immobility, and an increased risk of injury.
The primary goal of trigger point therapy is to release the tension and stress in the fascia and other structures within targeted treatment areas. By achieving this we are able to restore normal movement, relieve pain, and reduce your risk of further tissue damage.
