Trigger Point Therapy: Targeted Relief Of Pain and Stiffness
Trigger point therapy, discovered by Janet Travell, MD, (John F. Kennedy’s White House physician), has given non-surgical, non-drug problem resolution to many, many individuals. Skillfully applied, it targets the areas in the muscles that are actually triggering the symptoms and can provide remarkable results for those who thought surgery and/or drugs were the only options left.
Trigger points can be laid down in the soft tissue as a result of overuse, repetitive use, accidents, injuries, or strains and can later wreak havoc even years after their initial formation. By calming the irritated trigger points responsible for causing discomfort and restricted range of motion over a series of high-frequency sessions, an experienced massage therapist can work with you to achieve results from issues you may have given up on.
Even stiffness, that you may have thought you just had to live with, can be caused by trigger points. Relieve yourself from the pain and stiffness that can sap your energy, impact your mood, and take away from the enjoyment of life.
