Trigger Point Therapy
When muscles become fatigued from overuse and other muscles become weak from disuse, the nervous system functions in overdrive. This can cause a cycle of pain leading to
dysfunction and trigger points. Myofascial trigger points are extremely common and become a painful part of nearly everyone’s life at one time or another.
The severity of symptoms caused from trigger points range from agonizing and incapacitating pain caused by very active triggers points to the painless restriction of
movement and distortion of posture caused by inactive trigger points.

of motion. Masking the pain with medications does not solve the issue, it just masks the problems. Start permanently correction the issue with massage therapy.
