Each day, 25 million Americans take pain medication. Some of these people take medication daily for chronic pain. Most of these people prefer to avoid the possible long-term effects of these pills.

Trigger Point Therapy (TPT) works to relieve chronic, muscular pain without oral medication. This is a universally well received combination of clinically proven methods for treatment of chronic, muscular pain anywhere in the body. It is particularly well suited for chronic upper and lower back, neck and head pain.

What is Trigger Point Therapy?

Trigger Points (myofascial pain) are small “knots” or areas of spams, within a muscle. They may be tender when touched, or cause shortening of a muscle. The shortening may then cause limitation of range of motion of the affected area (for example, in neck rotation). Trigger points may even cause “referred pain” – pain that is felt in a distant location when the trigger point is touched.

How does it work?

Trigger Point Therapy essentially loosens these knots, allowing improved blood flow to the chronically spasmodic areas. As a result, the areas begin to heal. As soon as the knows are relieved , there is often an immediate and remarkable reduction in pain, soreness, and discomfort, as well as the beginning of long-term relief. If pursued properly over a number of sessions, the muscles will heal themselves and the symptoms will be abated. The treatment is simple, minimally invasive and quick. Improvement is usually noted after each visit.
