, Trigger point therapy can be performed in multiple ways, with the least invasive one is where chiropractors apply direct pressure or carefully stretch any affected muscles. The deliberate pressure placed with a thumb, elbow, or hand instrument can release the muscle, flushing out blood and toxins. All in all, this approach is an all-natural way to relax muscles while restoring flexibility and strength.
Trigger points can feel like small marbles and knots under your skin, which can be uncomfortable. However, generally, pressing on these shouldn’t generate any pain or discomfort. But sometimes, chiropractors can discover trigger points becoming sensitive, resulting in immense pain when pressed. Therapy can help identify these as safe as possible.
Prime Health and Wellness offers Trigger point therapy which can help reduce pain due to hypersensitive muscles.
Chiropractors locate trigger points by gently pressing on the patient’s skin surface, carefully feeling the texture of their underlying muscles. Besides identifying the affected areas, applying constant pressure using thumbs, elbows, or hand instruments helps muscles relax—reducing the overall pain.
