Trigger Point Therapy in Austin

Trigger Point Therapy

Everyday wear and tear from routine activities can lead to stress on the muscles and other soft tissues. This often causes damage which can lead to tension, referred pain, and sensitivity throughout the body. These painful spots are known as myofascial trigger points. The best way to alleviate the effects of trigger points is to break up the damaged tissues through mobilization, which is known as Trigger Point Therapy (TPT).

The healthcare providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine use multiple techniques for TPT, allowing them to use the most effective option for each individual. This approach has made us a trusted location for Trigger Point Therapy in Austin.

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 their own healthcare, producing notable results from the comforts of home in addition to treating in the clinic.
