Trigger Points are small nodules that can be felt in tight or spasmed muscles and can lead to muscle weakness and pain. Manual pressure over a trigger point will often cause local tenderness, a brief muscle twitch and possibly referred pain to other areas of your body. Muscle overuse, trauma such as a whiplash, poor posture, stress, toxins and many other factors cause trigger points to develope. To release a trigger point, mild to medium pressure is held over the point for about 7 to 10 seconds.
At Floro Chiropractic in conjunction with chiropractic treatment patients also receive trigger point therapy to speed their recovery time and allow their spinal adjustments to hold better. Other benefits trigger point therapy offers include: reduction in muscle spasms & pain, improved flexibility, muscle strength, balance and coordination. Automobile & sports injuries, slip and fall injuries, headaches, pulled muscles, tennis elbow, neck and back pain, and numerous other conditions have responded successfully with the combination of chiropractic and trigger point therapy that we offer.
