Trigger Point Therapy


Trigger Point Therapy

  • Trigger points are hyperirritable nodules or knots in skeletal muscles' fascia.

    • Active trigger points are exquisitely, have referral pain patterns, and twitch when pressed down upon

  • Trigger point therapy is performed by placing direct pressure over the "knot" known as ischemic compression

    • This temporarily cuts off circulation to the tissue;

    • By cutting off circulation to the tissue, this increases a chemical called nitric oxide;

    • Nitric oxide signals your body to open up microcapillaries, thus bringing in more blood flow and breaking the pain-spasm-pain cycle.

  • Please contact our office if you have any questions.
