Trigger Point TherapyPain in your back, feet, legs or any other part of the body can prevent you from working, exercising and having fun. It can even make it difficult to walk or just relax after a hard day. The team at Transformation Wellness Center in Troy, MI can help  reduce and often eliminate your pain using a treatment called trigger point therapy. It is a non-invasive treatment that can provide relief through the release of pressure throughout the body.

Pain Relief
Patients most commonly report aches and pains in the back, neck, head (headaches), feet and shoulders. The pain can be caused by injury, arthritic conditions, health problems or general aging. Doctors explore many different methods of treatment for pain ranging from NSAID medications and cortisone injections to invasive surgeries. But some patients prefer to seek alternative, non-invasive solutions, like trigger point therapy.

What Is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger point therapy is a popular method of pain relief offered by Transformation Wellness Center in Troy, MI. Massage therapists use pressure on specific tightened muscles that may be causing pain in other areas of the body. For instance, a tight place in the back could be the cause of a pain in the neck. The qualified therapists at Transformation Wellness Center are educated about these pressure points and the various connections in the body.

Working Together...
You and your therapist must work together during a trigger point therapy session. The therapist uses varying levels of pressure directed to specific places on the body while you do focused, deep breathing. While this can, at times, be uncomfortable, your therapist is trained to deliver the most effective technique with the least amount of discomfort and will always work within your tolerance level.  In some cases, patients experience significant pain relief in just one session.
