Trigger Point Therapy
Are you looking for Trigger Point Therapy in Clinton, Landover, Waldorf, and Washington, DC? A small muscular nod, or specifically a trigger point, can be responsible for pain in parts of the body that are quite some distance from where the nodule is itself. It is common for a trigger point in the low to mid back to radiate pain and discomfort into the shoulders and neck. This neck and shoulder pain is likely to cause pain in the head that can be a dull ache or a sharp, intense pain.
Understanding Trigger Point Therapy
This particular kind of therapy is designed to work on the nodule directly. There is specific, controlled pressure that is applied to the trigger point. After a few seconds of pressure, it is released. During the trigger point, the patient participates and communicates by identifying areas of discomfort as well as having controlled deep breathing.
Relieving the trigger points in a muscle, it is allowing the muscle knot to loosen. Patients often experience immediate relief following one treatment. Regularly scheduled trigger point therapy can give you the benefits of pain management from stress, injury, etc.
