Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a painful area within a tight band of muscle or fascia. These spots are painful on compression and can evoke characteristic referred pain. Trigger points can cause pain, restriction of movement and weakness in the affected muscle. They rarely exist singly, but usually in groups that create mechanical dysfunction manifesting as orthopedic conditions we commonly see. Trigger points form due to trauma, muscular fatigue, repetitive motions, acute overload (as in acute strain), emotional distress, as well as reactive or compensatory to many of the conditions below. They are also seen in most sports injuries and can be the frequently overlooked reason why rest, medication, physical therapy, and other forms of treatment fail.

Trigger Point Therapy helps treat:


Most importantly we treat the entire condition, not just the pain, to ensure a great result.


Elimination and control of trigger point pain is one our specialties. We use a variety of procedures including deep tissue ischemic compression, Active Release Technique®, Graston Technique®, Fascial Manipulation, as well as electrical modalities. As the tissues improve, appropriate exercises are given to strengthen the area.
