Undeniable Benefits of Trigger Point therapy

Trigger point treatment is a type of manual therapy that focuses on locating and eliminating trigger points. Trigger points are tender areas in the skeletal muscle that cause pain when compressed. Trigger points are commonly formed as a result of muscle fiber damage.

Trigger point treatment is also known as myofascial trigger point therapy or neuromuscular therapy and is typically used to treat pain-related problems. Massage therapy, chiropractic care, and dry needling are all options for releasing trigger points.

Trigger point therapy is frequently used as part of a patient’s entire treatment plan when they come to us for medical pain management. Consider some of the advantages of trigger point therapy:

·        Decreased Headache 

Trigger point treatment is a tried and true way of treating headaches caused by stiff upper back and neck muscles. When a patient presents with chronic headaches, we perform an assessment to determine the underlying reason. Trigger point therapy can be utilized to treat the muscles when the underlying reason is muscular, resulting in fewer headaches. In many circumstances, trigger point therapy can be more successful than medicine for medical pain alleviation, especially in the long term, according to pain management physicians.

·        Better Warmup

For a long time, static stretching was touted as excellent pre-workout injury prevention practice. According to recent research, pre-workout static stretching actually reduces muscle performance. Self-myofascial release is a more effective warm-up practice, particularly when combined with dynamic stretching.

·        Relive from Migraine

Migraines and tension headaches can make your head feel like it’s wrapped in a tight band of pain. Chronic headaches can have a big impact on your quality of life, and trigger spots around your head, neck, and shoulders can make things worse.

If you suffer from migraines or tension headaches regularly, trigger point therapy may be able to help. Trigger point treatment can be used to relieve headache pain right away or as a preventative measure to lessen the number of headaches you get.

·        Reduce Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness

We’ve all had the experience of going for a run or going to the gym for the first time in a few months. Our muscles are tight, aching, and stiff the next day, and it’s frequently difficult to walk down a flight of steps. Post-exercise muscle soreness is a term used to describe the discomfort that occurs after engaging in hard physical activity.

Micro tears (little tears inside muscle fibers), blood pooling, and stored waste products such as lactic acid cause this discomfort.

Stretching helps relieve the discomfort by stretching specific muscle fibers, boosting blood circulation, and eliminating waste materials as part of an effective cool-down.
