Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are small "knots", or areas of spasm, within a muscle. They may be tender when touched, or cause shortening of a muscle. This can cause limited range of motion or "referred pain"- pain that is felt in a distant location.
Trigger Point Therapy loosens these knots, allowing improved blood flow to the chronically spasmodic areas. As soon as the knots are relieved, there is often an immediate and remarkable reduction in pain, soreness and discomfort, as well as the beginning of long term relief. Over a number of sessions, the muscles will heal themselves and the symptoms will be abated. The treatment is simple, minimally invasive and quick. Improvement is usually noted after each visit.
Trigger Point Therapy is covered by most major insurance plans including workers compensation and no-fault.
The treatments are adminstered by Elvia Manrique, FNP-C.
