Trigger points, those minuscule knots nestled within the myofascial tissue enveloping your muscles, can inflict significant pain and discomfort. These active trigger points exhibit tenderness and sensitivity upon touch, and they often give rise to referred pain—a unique sensation that emanates from a distant area in relation to the trigger point itself. Described as persistent, regional pain that spreads or radiates, trigger point pain can be quite challenging.
Several factors contribute to the development of myofascial trigger points. They may arise following acute muscle trauma or a series of repetitive injuries. Additionally, a sedentary lifestyle or lack of regular exercise can be conducive to their formation. Sleep disorders, improper posture, and inadequate nutrition also play a role in the creation of these distressing trigger points.
Understanding the complex origins of trigger points empowers you to address them effectively. By identifying the underlying causes and seeking appropriate treatment, you can embark on a journey towards pain relief, improved well-being, and a revitalized life.
The influence of trigger points extends beyond their localized presence, often leading to widespread discomfort and limiting your range of motion within the affected region. These troublesome knots can weaken the surrounding muscles, placing additional strain on unaffected areas as they strive to compensate for the resulting weakness.
The consequences of trigger points can manifest in various ways, including:

Our quick and convenient in-office procedure begins with a comprehensive examination, enabling our skilled physicians to identify the precise locations and intensity of your trigger points. During the treatment, you can expect the following steps:
