Let's Make Trigger Point Pain Go Away

trigger points in milpitas

 

Trigger points are a great source of pain, but what exactly are they? 

The fascia is a layer of tissue that covers the muscles and spreads uninterrupted throughout the body. Following injury to a muscle, there is often an accompanying epicenter of sensitivity. This is called the trigger point; the important distinction is that trigger points are not areas of scar tissue within the muscle, but rather an area of increased sensitivity that causes discomfort and pain when pressurized. Often this pain can be felt in other parts of the body, seemingly unrelated to the injury, in what is known as referred pain

Chiropractic treatment for trigger points and myosfascial pain in Milpitas

Trigger points can develop in any skeletal muscle, (those that provide stability and movement to joints and bones) and because of referred pain, it is important to know exactly where the pain is originating from. Because myofascial pain does not show up on X-rays, MRIs or CT scans, we use a more hands on approach to detect trigger points. At our office in Milpitas, we use manual pressure to search for trigger points in the muscles that correspond to your pain. From here, we use treatment methods including:

  • Myofascial release
  • Active Release technique
  • Heat and Ice
  • Electric stimulation and ultrasound
  • Specific stretching and strengthening

Are you suffering from recurrent trigger point pain in Milpitas?

Trigger points also develop due to deficiencies in lifestyle; repetitive trauma, poor posture and high levels of stress contribute to heightened muscle tension which often translates into trigger points. We help you identify behavior that leads to heightened muscle tension and give you ways to dispel it in the moment. Give our office a call to find out more about what we can do to help detect and defeat your myofascial pain.
