If you have back pain, you know how much it can interfere with living how you want. You may struggle to walk, lift, sit, or even lay because of the discomfort. While pain medications can reduce your pain, even over-the-counter ones have their share of drawbacks. An option that may help you is trigger point therapy at Waterside Chiropractic.

What You Should Know About Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy is a specialized type of massage therapy that targets your trigger points — the locations of the origin of your pain. For instance, you may have lower back pain as a result of an issue with your legs. Therefore, the massage focuses on your legs.

Our chiropractic physicians massage the center around your triggers point to ease the pressure. The entire concept of trigger point therapy revolves around the fact that waste products build around your nerve clusters and stimulate nerve pain and other nerve-related symptoms. Sometimes, these symptoms spread beyond the initial site of the pain because the waste can cause bands or nodules that press on your soft tissue. The massage breaks up the clusters to ease your symptoms.

Conditions Treated by Trigger Point Therapy

Our chiropractic physicians may suggest trigger point therapy as either a sole treatment or complementary treatment along with other chiropractic treatments. Some examples of issues your practitioner may use trigger point therapy for include:

  • Sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sports injuries
  • Tinnitus
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Migraines
  • Tennis or golfer’s shoulder
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Fibromyalgia

What to Expect During a Trigger Point Therapy Session

During your initial appointment, our chiropractic physicians will ask you to fill out a medical history report. From this information, our chiropractic physicians determine if trigger point therapy is safe for you based on your current and previous medical conditions.

At Waterside Chiropractic your treatment starts on a sterilized table. You may go through breathing exercises first. Next, your therapist identifies the root of your problem based on our chiropractic physicians’ evaluation. Through your trigger point therapy, your massage therapist performs techniques that deeply stimulate the muscles around your trigger points. After the procedure, you should have minimal discomfort from the treatment itself; however, you may need several sessions to feel the full benefits of trigger point therapy.  Trigger point therapy helps with back and other neuromuscular pain and other symptoms. The procedure is safe for most, and the entire treatment process caters to your particular needs.

Our Phases of Care

Phase 1: Relief Care

Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms, usually requiring regular visits.

Phase 2: Corrective Care

In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms have been alleviated.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure your physical problems do not return and keep your body in optimal condition.
