You and your therapist will discuss relevant information including any discomforts you have such as pain, injuries, disorders and similar matters. Problems are noted and treatment begins. The goal is to provide safe and effective treatment that encourages your body to restore, realign and balance your myofascial system.
- NeuroMuscular Therapy aka Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point therapy is the application of an appropriate amount of light pressure to "trigger" the muscle tissue into a reset function which allows the tender tissue to return to its neutral and natural position thereby relieving the pain or lack of range of motion of a joint or appendage. I apply this therapy in unique ways to facilitate the increase in range of motion and the reduction and or remediation of muscular pain.
What are Trigger Points?
Trigger points are hyper contracted and thus partially dehydrated muscle fibers that are referred as areas of tenderness in a muscle. There are two basic types of trigger points: active and latent. Active trigger points cause muscular pain. Active points will often refer pain and tenderness to another area of the body when pressure is applied. Latent trigger point's only exhibit pain when compressed, they do not refer pain to other areas of the body. Latent trigger points are likely to be one of the causes of stiff joints and restricted range of motion.
Trigger points are different from acupressure points. Acupressure points are concentrations of energy or blockages of the body's energy pathways. Trigger points are physical phenomena that can be felt by touching.
What Causes Trigger Points?
Trigger points have several causes. Some common causes are: birth trauma, an injury sustained in a fall or accident, poor posture, low blood sugar, dehydration, or overexertion.
