McHenry Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points in the body, commonly known as “muscle knots” consist of tense and tight areas of muscle tissue that is frequently the source of pain. The source of the pain however, may actually originate in other parts of the body. A trigger point or ‘knot’ in the back for example, may cause debilitating pain in the neck area. Qualified Relaxation At Hand massage therapists are trained and experienced to identify the source of muscle pain and provide lasting relief from chronic pain for our McHenry clients.
Identifying Trigger Points and Associated Conditions
Trigger points on the body are classified as either active or latent. Active points are the source of muscular pain. Qualified Relaxation At Hand therapist apply effective pressure to release pain and physical tension at its source through massage in an alternate area.
Relief for Decreased Mobility and Fibromyalgia
Latent trigger points, on the other hand, do not always correspond to pain in another part of the body and may cause discomfort only when constricted. Frequently the cause of stiff joints and declining mobility as we age, latent trigger points are also associated with chronic pain syndromes that include fibromyalgia.
Trigger Point Plans
Releasing trigger points increases muscle strength and flexibility and improves range of motion. Relaxation At Hand massage therapists are trained and experienced to identify affected areas and provide lasting relief with professional massage therapy. Many clients experience significant relief following one or two trigger point therapy treatments. The frequency of sessions varies and depends on your condition.
