You may refer to a trigger point as a muscle knot. It describes an area of tightness and tenderness in a muscle. These points can develop due to overuse, muscle strain, or poor posture, and they may cause referred pain or discomfort in other parts of the body.
Trigger points restrict blood flow and cause muscle fibers to contract, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.
Trigger point therapy is a technique that applies pressure to these specific points, releasing tension and promoting muscle relaxation.
Dr. Shemansky uses a hands-on strategy to relieve trigger points. He applies sustained pressure to these specific points to restore proper muscle activity.
Trigger point therapy is highly effective in treating various musculoskeletal conditions, including:
Trigger point therapy is also beneficial for relieving discomfort caused by repetitive strain injuries, fibromyalgia, and myofascial pain syndrome. By addressing the root cause of pain and tension, trigger point therapy offers relief and improved overall well-being.
Dr. Shemansky often incorporates trigger point therapy into his chiropractic treatment plans to complement the overall care provided. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore proper spinal alignment and nerve function, while trigger point therapy targets muscle imbalances and tension.
The combination of these treatment strategies offers a comprehensive approach to address your condition’s structural and muscular aspects.
