Trigger Point Therapy

If you’re suffering from chronic pain or restricted movement due to trigger points, Dr. Phil Lozano at Lozano Chiropractic in Norco, CA, offers trigger point therapy to help you find relief.

Quick Guide to Trigger Point Therapy

There are many musculoskeletal issues that can cause chronic pain and suffering – one of them is known as a trigger point. Trigger points can be tender, sensitive areas that restrict movement and create various other symptoms. Below, Dr. Lozano and the team at Lozano Chiropractic of Norco, CA, explain trigger points in more detail and how trigger point therapy can eliminate them.

What Is a Trigger Point?

Our soft tissues – especially our muscles and fascia – go through a lot each day. Every move we make can damage the soft tissues if we are not careful or do not take care of our bodies properly, and tension often builds up.

When injuries and tension are not treated promptly, they can cause painful knots to build up in the muscles and the fascia. These are known as trigger points.

Sometimes, you can tell they are there because when you touch the area, you get a jolt of pain. Other times, they are not so close to the surface, but you might notice it hurts to move in a specific way.

How Does Trigger Point Therapy Work?

This technique is utilized specifically for releasing trigger points in the soft tissues, but it can be applied in many ways. In some cases, the chiropractor will apply consistent pressure to the area for a set amount of time. In other cases, the pressure is combined with kneading and other movements.

Once the trigger points are released, blood will flow better to the damaged area to stimulate healing. You’ll begin to notice less tightness and be able to move more freely.

Like other chiropractic techniques, releasing trigger points is a highly customized treatment. Sessions may only last a few minutes but can take up to an hour when needed. Additionally, some people need only a few sessions, while others need several. The number of sessions and length of each depends on how many areas need to be treated, how well your body responds to the treatment, and other individualized factors. 

Typically, trigger point therapy is combined with other techniques to speed up recovery and enhance healing. Additional techniques can include adjustments, therapeutic stretches, ice and heat therapy, and more.
