Trigger point therapy for pain management and pain relief
Are you suffering from chronic pain? Is your mobility restricted? Are you constantly experiencing headaches and tension?
A poor posture or physical stress puts an unnatural strain on the muscles and, as a result, on the cartilage, bones and ligaments. Due to that, painful trigger points form in the muscle and peripheral triggers in the tendon insertion of the bones. These triggers are permanently tight, contracted muscles and thickened regions of muscle fibre. The medical term for this condition is myogelosis. Triggers can develop anywhere in the muscular tissue of the body – but regardless of where they form, they will cause pain. Often, a myogelosis forms far away from the causal, improperly strained region. This is why in some cases, only the symptoms, but not the causes are properly attended to. During trigger point therapy, about 2,000 pulses are put on the painful trigger points in 3 to 5 sessions.
With trigger point therapy, we can treat the following trigger point areas:
• Mandibular joint
• Thoracic spine
• Cervical spine
• Lumbar spine
• Upper arm
• Lower leg
Are there any side effects?
In general, trigger point therapy is a very gentle treatment. For a short time, disorders may increase, but there are no known side effects.
