Myofascial Trigger Point therapists work to support medical practitioners and specific condition-based outcomes in at least three ways:
- By being a good resource for the drug-free, least invasive and least expensive option. We look for the possibility of soft tissue/trigger points being a source or contributor to the patient’s pain or dysfunction. If it is found that the treatment at our clinic can or does eliminate the pain or symptoms, then no further surgical or testing measures need to be taken.
- If surgical/procedural intervention was deemed necessary, the manual trigger point therapy can be a post –operative support to help achieve post-op healing and fascial health along with full range of motion and strength.
- Into the future, regular myofascial therapy treatments can help the
patient retain a high level of pain-free function, even into a high
level of exercise or sports participation.
We strive to make our clients feel comfortable and well-informed throughout the entire treatment process, from the initial visit to our movement classes to ensure full soft-tissue recovery. In fact, our treatment approach can be broken down into four easy-to-follow steps:
We undertake a comprehensive review of our client’s physical condition and identify the most probable muscles harboring Myofascial Dysfunction and Trigger Points.
Through a detailed history, we uncover key factors such as: hyper-pronation and poor work/sleep postures that need to be changed in order to fully eliminate pain.
Using our hands-on Trigger Point Therapy Protocol, we treat and eliminate muscular dysfunction and reduce and eliminate pain caused by myofascial dysfunction and trigger points.
We believe “Education is Power”. As advocates of empowerment through self-treatment training, we teach our clients what to do at home and at work so as to prevent the problem from returning and thereby maintaining a high level of pain-free function as well as a high sports-performance level.
