Trigger Point Therapy helps to Alleviate the Symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome
With myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles or trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. Dr. Derek Maul and his team of professionals at Charlotte Chiropractic and Rehab is experienced in alleviating this pain with specialized hands-on techniques.
Normal myofascial muscles should feel pliable and elastic. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies, sports or by stress-related muscle tension.
Symptoms of Myofasical Pain Syndrome:
- Deep, aching pain in a muscle
- A tender knot in a muscle
- Back pain and neck pain
- Sinus issues or allergies
- Immune system issues
- Numbness, tingling or pain in the extremities
Trigger Point Therapy for Myofascial Pain:
Dr. Maul and his team will find and target the more rigid areas as well as other areas affected by this tightness, utilizing hands-on manipulation to release the tension found in the body. The team will work with you to help you manage and release the tension that has been building. This tension would normally seem unrelated to other ailments, but this chronic pain disorder is due to sensitivity and tightness in certain tissues.
