Trigger Point Therapy

Stress on the muscles from routine daily activities can cause damage that leads to pain and sensitivity throughout the body. These painful areas are known as myofascial trigger points. Pain from trigger points can impede everyday life, making even the most regular tasks uncomfortable. Trigger Point Therapy applies pressure to key segments of the body to release tension, relieve pain and rejuvenate blood flow.

About Trigger Point Therapy:

Our medical providers will first discuss key trigger points to target during a thorough initial evaluation. The patient also actively participates in treatment, providing feedback and deep breathing to identify the exact areas to target. Additional modalities including the Active Release Technique and the Fascial Distortion Model may also be used. Our Manual Therapist will also instruct the patient to perform exercises at home, using balls and rollers. Patients can relieve tension and spasms themselves by applying pressure for 3-5 minutes per muscle group.

Trigger Point Therapy is an effective complement to Physical Therapy and Chiropractic treatment at Austin Preferred. This is because the patients can play an active role in treatment, producing notable results from the comforts of home. This approach has made Austin Preferred a popular destination for Trigger Point Therapy in Austin, Texas.
