What Are Trigger Points?

Trigger Point Release Therapy provides pain relief for back pain, shoulder or neck pain, headaches, sciatica or joint pain. Using a combination of skilled pressure release and stretches, this therapy program will reduce or remove pain, then retrain and lengthen the muscles involved to keep the pain from returning.

Trigger points are hyper-irritable spots in the tough tissue (called “fascia”) surrounding muscles as well as in the muscles.

An irritated trigger point can create “referred pain”, which means the migraine and headache tension you’ve been struggling with may actually be caused by an irritated trigger point in your neck or shoulder. Upper or lower back pain and sciatica pain or joint pain may come from trigger points in the hips or abdomen.

The trigger points themselves are not always painful so it is often difficult for medical practitioners or therapists to find the true source of the pain you are experiencing.

Trigger Point Release Therapy addresses the source of pain, relieves it, retrains muscles to prevent relapses and includes an assessment of activities that may cause trigger point irritation.

 

Testimonials

I have experienced incredible relief from the trigger point release. Myofascial pain is agonizing; the treatments provided by Christine work and the relief lasts.

Rebecca

I had intense hip and leg pain that went all the way down to my ankle when I started Trigger Point Therapy. Since starting therapy my pain level has decreased greatly. I am stronger and am able to walk for longer periods of time. My range of motion has improved. Christine is a very knowledgeable and devoted professional who works hard to help you.

Marilyn

I had so much back and hip pain that I had problems climbing stairs, walking and even sitting. I tried everything from doctors to massage to chiropractic and nothing helped. After my first appointment with Christine I began to feel better. Now I have my life back and can do all the things I love to do.

Barbara

I had back pain and migraine headaches. Christine understood my pain and by the end of my first therapy session I felt much better. She has given me a series of specific stretches to do every morning and they really help. I like that trigger point release therapy doesn’t involve taking medication. If you want your pain to lessen or even go away, I strongly recommend making a therapy appointment.

Kristy

I lived with chronic pain for 12 years, taking pain pills and muscle relaxers just to get through the day. With Trigger Point Therapy my life is improved and I am able to stay away from medication. I would strongly urge anyone who suffers with chronic or acute pain to set up an appointment. You will find the relief you have been searching for.
