Our Chiropractic office near Washington is available for trigger point therapy.

If you have back pain, you know how much it can interfere with living how you want. You may struggle to walk, lift, sit, or even lay because of the discomfort. While pain medications can reduce your pain, even over-the-counter ones have their share of drawbacks. An option that may help you is trigger point therapy at Washington Chiropractic Center.

What You Should Know About Trigger Point Therapy 

Trigger point therapy is a specialized type of massage therapy that targets your trigger points -- the locations of the origin of your pain. For instance, you may have lower back pain as a result of an issue with your legs. Therefore, the massage focuses on your legs.  

Dr. & Dr. John Livingston massages the center around your triggers point to ease the pressure. The entire concept of trigger point therapy revolves around the fact that waste products build around your nerve clusters and stimulate nerve pain and other nerve-related symptoms. Sometimes, these symptoms spread beyond the initial site of the pain because the waste can cause bands or nodules that press on your soft tissue. The massage breaks up the clusters to ease your symptoms. 

Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy at Washington Chiropractic Center

Dr. & Dr. John Livingston relieve muscle tension and shortening. It assists in relieving pain as well. Additionally, trigger point therapy can help with the following:

  • Tingling 
  • Numbness

Conditions Treated by Trigger Point Therapy 

Dr. & Dr. John Livingston may suggest trigger point therapy as either a sole treatment or complementary treatment along with other chiropractic treatments. Some examples of issues your practitioner may use trigger point therapy for include:

What to Expect During a Trigger Point Therapy Session 

During your initial appointment, Dr. & Dr. John Livingston will ask you to fill out a medical history report. From this information, Dr. & Dr. John Livingston determines if trigger point therapy is safe for you based on your current and previous medical conditions. 

At Washington Chiropractic Center your treatment starts on a sterilized table. You may go through breathing exercises first. Next, your therapist identifies the root of your problem based on your Dr. & Dr. John Livingston evaluation. Through your trigger point therapy, your massage therapist performs techniques that deeply stimulate the muscles around your trigger points. 

After the procedure, you should have minimal discomfort from the treatment itself; however, you may need several sessions to feel the full benefits of trigger point therapy. 

Trigger point therapy helps with back and other neuromuscular pain and other symptoms. The procedure is safe for most, and the entire treatment process caters to your particular needs.
