What is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger point therapy (TPT) is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of manual therapy, you actively participate utilizing deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of your discomfort.
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. Referral pain is pain originating in one location and being felt in another. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head.
The results and benefits of TPT are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving TPT on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
