Neuromuscular Trigger Point Therapy addresses the problem at the source. A knot in the muscle, or "trigger point", is a continuously contracted fiber in the muscle that stops blood flow and starves that part of the muscle of nutrients and oxygen, metabolic waste and toxins build up causing pain, tension, and muscle spasms. The fiber with the knot is connected to the healthy fibers around it causing tension in the entire muscle. When the knot in the muscle is in contact with a nerve it can cause severe pain, numbness, and tingling in a completely different area of the body causing headaches, low back pain, upper back pain, shoulder pain, hip and knee pain, or foot pain. Often times referred pain from trigger points are misdiagnosed as Migraines, Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Bursitis and many other conditions. Trigger points often mimic the symptoms of a very long list of common and chronic ailments.
Trigger point therapy quickly and easily releases the knots and reestablishes circulation to the area of the muscle allowing the body to return to a healthy pain free state.
