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 Anderson Chiropractic Clinic.

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. Anderson 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.

What to Expect During a Trigger Point Therapy Session 

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

At Anderson Chiropractic Clinic 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. Anderson 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.

I went in with extreme pain in my neck and shoulder and down to my elbow. Afterwards I took some of the natural turmeric and drank lots of water. The same day I drove 2 1/2 hours to help my dad move and felt great!

I love this group of ladies they are always very sweet when I come in. They brighten my day and give me the little bit of peace that I crave on the toughest days. Originally purchased a Groupon to try them out for migraines and have purchased multiple sessions due to positive results. I love the fee...
