Our holistic therapists are experts at manual trigger point therapy. Trigger points are more than just tender spots in muscles. They are painful, palpable nodules, that radiate pain to other areas of your body.
Trigger points can develop in any muscle, although most commonly found in the back, neck, and shoulders. They are caused by:
- Prolonged immobility
- Muscle overuse or strain
- Nutritional deficiency
- Low oxygenation of tissues
- Adverse environmental conditions
Our Tampa and St. Petersburg office provide trigger point therapy to de-activate, correctly stimulate, and effectively treat trigger points. Through proper treatment, you will experience improved range of motion, reduced inflammation and stiffness, reduced pain, and increased flexibility and muscle coordination.
Dr. Hermann will give you a thorough evaluation to diagnose the presence of trigger points. She then works very closely with our expert therapists to develop a treatment plan that targets those specific points.
