Glen Cove 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. At Massage For Health I have experience to identify the source of muscle pain and administer treatments to provide lasting relief from chronic pain for our Glen Cove 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 Massage For Health 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. 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. At Massage For Health I will be able 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 Glen Cove to contact Lorraine Perillo to find out more about treatment options.
