Trigger Point Massage Therapy
We all know that massages can be relaxing, but did you know that regular massage therapy helps relieve chronic pain conditions? Trigger point massage therapy in particular is a highly-focused form of massage therapy that identifies and manually treats various trigger points around the muscles that are compressed and causing pain.
At Lone Tree Chiropractic in Lone Tree, CO, we offer trigger point massages to improve our patients' overall health and wellbeing, both preventing pain and treating it right at the source. This technique is all-natural and drug-free, and will help your body heal naturally.
What Causes a Trigger Point?
Tigger points are areas of pain that are stiff, sore, or cause recurring pain. They are nerve clusters that waste products build around. These trigger points can spread and cause pain in your soft tissues. Trigger points can result from a variety of things, from poor posture and certain sleeping positions to injuries and lack of nutrition in your diet. They can also come from diseases or chronic pain conditions. These trigger points will cause tension, tingling, and sometimes numbness in the affected areas.
How Trigger Point Massage Therapy Works
When you visit our facility, our chiropractor will perform a physical examination to determine where your pain is coming from. We will also ask about your symptoms and pain history so we can assess the area that may be causing you problems. Once compressed muscle tissue is identified, the trigger point massage can begin. Depending on your specific needs, a variety of techniques can be performed to treat the compressed area, from manual manipulation with our massage therapist's fingers to using a massage tool. The massage will stimulate and break up the painful areas to alleviate pressure and tension. Once the treatment session is finished, we may provide you with some stretches or other things you can do at home to help keep the area limber.
These massages help to break up nerve clusters, improve blood flow, and promote natural healing in your body. Trigger point therapy will lessen your pain and improve your mobility. You will likely need numerous sessions with our massage therapist to get the full effects of trigger point therapy.
Many conditions may benefit from trigger point massage therapy, including:
- Headaches and migraines
- Back Pain
- Joint Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
