What is Trigger Point Therapy and How Can It Help You?

Trigger Point therapy is a type of non-surgical regenerative medicine used to treat musculoskeletal pain. It focuses on relieving chronic pain by releasing muscle tension throughout the body with massages, injections, or dry needling techniques. Using a sterile technique, the needle is inserted at a distance of 1 to 2 cm from the activation point so that the needle can move towards the activation point at an acute angle of 30 degrees with respect to the skin. This helps to open microcapillaries (extremely small blood vessels), increasing blood flow to break the trigger point and end the cycle of pain, spasms, and pain.

Trigger Point therapy can be used to immediately relieve headache pain or as preventive therapy to reduce the number of headaches you experience. It can also be used to treat plantar fasciitis, tension headaches, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain, decreased range of motion in the legs, and lower back pain. Myofascial release is another technique that may be useful for muscle knots and trigger points. Participating in an active postural correction and exercise treatment program is also beneficial for trigger points.

Trigger Point therapy is an effective way to reduce chronic pain and improve overall health. It can help relieve muscle tension and improve range of motion in the body, allowing you to move more freely and comfortably.
