Trigger Point Therapy for stubborn aches and pain - Wake Medical Massage The most frequent injury to a muscle is a trigger point. Generally, when one thinks of soft tissue pain, they think of injuries such as muscle strains and spasms. However there is a much more common muscle injury that everyone has suffered from. It is called a trigger point. If you are experiencing physical pain, the odds are great that you have not one, but several small muscle contractions (knots) restricting range of motion. Your Certified and Licensed Medical Massage Therapist at Wake Medical Massage specializes in treating trigger points in many muscle groups, especially those in the arms, legs, upper & lower back, neck, and TMJ. In addition, this drug-free technique is also used to alleviate myofascial pain syndrome (chronic pain involving tissue that surrounds muscle). Call Now 919.228.9559 to start your relief

Characteristics of Trigger Points (Knots):

Frequent pain spots that may be sharp and intense or a dull ache that generally occurs in the neck, shoulders, arms, back, hips, and legs.

Cause referred pain - pain that travels to another area of the body as a result of the myofascial compromise at the locus of the trigger point (See picture).

Palpable nodules found in taut bands of muscle tissue with symptoms that can range from intolerable agonizing pain caused by "active" trigger points, to painless restriction of movement and distortion of posture from "latent" trigger points.

A trigger point is a small muscle contraction (knot) and extremely irritable spot that is painful and restricts range of motion.

All skeletal muscles of the body have trigger points, and each and every one of them is capable of causing pain.

A trigger point on your back, for instance, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, which now acts as a satellite trigger point, may in turn produce an acute pain or a dull ache in the head. Trigger points in the suboccipital muscle group are the most common cause of tension headaches. Another most recognizable trigger point lies in the upper trapezius muscle, which lies atop of the torso resting between one’s shoulder and neck.

Your NC Board Certified & Licensed Medical Massage Therapist at Wake Medical Massage is experienced to address your stubborn trigger points using appropriate muscle manipulation and ischemic compression to deactivate them and increase function to the referred area. Left untreated, they cause restricted and painful movement. Most people experience the pain of trigger point massage therapy as healing -"Pain....that hurts so good!".

The results and benefits of trigger point therapy sessions are structured to release constricted spots in the muscles and as a result alleviate pain and improve range of motion. This treatment is highly recommended in cases of chronic pain, numbness and discomfort, such as headaches, low back pain, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis and carpal tunnel-like symptoms. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may want to get several sessions in close proximity and then periodically get a maintenance session.
