What is trigger point therapy?

Trigger point therapy involves stimulating myofascial (muscle and connective tissue) trigger points that often refer pain sensations to other parts of the body.

See our Trigger Point Therapy page for more information.

How can trigger point therapy benefit me?

The goals of myofascial trigger point therapy include reducing pain, improving muscle range of motion, and determining (and thereby helping to mitigate) any ongoing factors that are keeping you in pain.

See our Trigger Point Therapy page for more information.

How is trigger point therapy performed?

Trigger point therapy employs manual compression of the trigger point after it is located within the muscle fiber.

This therapy does not involve the use of lotions or oils. Instead pain patterns are identified, and the involved muscles are treated.
