Trigger Point Therapy in Atlanta

Trigger Point Therapy is an effective treatment modality used to alleviate chronic pain through the identification and manipulation of specific points on the body known as trigger points. These points are often the source of intense discomfort and can contribute to a range of musculoskeletal conditions. At our Atlanta clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating these painful points through various therapeutic techniques, enhancing patient well-being and mobility.

What is Trigger Point Therapy?

Trigger points are tender or painful spots found in muscles. These knots form when muscles do not relax as they should. The tightness in the muscle can disrupt function, cause pain, and result in pain in other parts of the body—a phenomenon known as referred pain. Trigger point therapy aims to alleviate the source of the pain through direct pressure and motion, including:

  • Manual Pressure: Therapists apply direct pressure to points to relieve tension.
  • Massage Therapy: Uses broader massage techniques to address multiple muscle groups around trigger points.
  • Dry Needling: Involves inserting a small needle into the trigger point to cause a small twitch response and relieve muscle tension.
  • Heat Therapy: Applying heat to relax and soothe tense muscles around trigger points.
