Cherry Hills 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.
As a qualified massage therapist, I am trained and experienced to identify the source of muscle pain and administer treatments to provide lasting relief from chronic pain to my Cherry Hills 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. At Clearbrook Healing Center, I apply effective treatment to release pain and physical tension at its source through massage treatment 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 Treatment Plans
Releasing trigger points increases muscle strength and flexibility and improves range of motion. Having undergone precise training, I know how to identify affected areas and provide lasting relief with professional massage therapy treatments. Many clients experience significant relief following one or two trigger point therapy treatments. The frequency of treatment varies and depends on your condition.
I invite the people of Cherry Hills to contact Clearbrook Healing Center to find out more about my many treatment options.
