DO YOU KNOW WHAT TRIGGER POINT THERAPY IS ALL ABOUT?
Here is a brief detail to give you a proper insight into it…
“Prior to treatment I regularly experienced discomfort and my sleep was affected. Now I don’t have any pinching at all and no lingering pain- very satisfied with that. I found the staff all very warm and attentive. My questions were answered easily and I felt heard. Thank you for the healing!”
“I found the staff here friendly, welcoming, kind and helpful. My therapist and support staff were knowledgeable and gentle. My condition improved quickly with the therapies I received.”
The trigger point release is a therapy that requires the use of hands to provide gentle but firm pressure to certain areas of your body referred to as trigger points. It requires the knowledge and skills of a well professional therapist to spot these specific areas.
The importance of trigger point release is to help normalize trigger points within the fascia. It is a widespread and fibrous tissue that looks like a sheath that helps to protect your musculoskeletal structures (muscles, tendons, nerves, ligaments, and bone). The fascia is usually flexible and pliant and allows movement between the musculoskeletal in a coordinated way. Poor hydration or nutrition, improper loading, injury, poor posture, or repetitive movement can make the fascia stiff and inelastic. Once this occurs, movement between the connective tissues becomes limited, resulting in pain, immobility, and injury.
When a patient begins to suffer from this, a trigger point is applied to help release the stress and tension in the fascia as well as other surrounding parts within the affected area. It helps to relieve pain, restore movement, and lower the possibility of further tissues damage.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR TRIGGER POINT RELEASE?

When you come for your first appointment, a licensed massage therapist will perform the required examination and evaluation. If you are curious about anything, feel free to ask questions along the way, this will help your therapist know more about your condition and assist them when recommending your treatment plan.
Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic always advise patients to be well-hydrated before, during, and after treatment.
