Benefits of Trigger Point Massage Therapy

If you are suffering from chronic pain or stiffness, chiropractic care can help. One method used for pain and stiffness is massage therapy, which includes trigger point massages. At West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic in Omaha, NE, we offer trigger point massage therapy to alleviate pain and help your body heal.

What Is Trigger Point Massage Therapy?

A trigger point massage is a form of massage therapy that is conducted by our licensed massage therapist. This form of therapy is focused on the detection and release of trigger points on the body. Certain muscles in the body can tense up and spasm, which causes severe pain. These knots or trigger points will not relax on their own. These painful areas can form from overuse, stress, and injuries. A trigger point massage helps release tension from these areas and promote healing by directly massaging a point on the body that has been injured or damaged. The massage is done manually or using tools.

Trigger point massage therapy is safe, effective, and non-invasive. This method allows you to avoid risky surgeries and pain medications, which often come with side effects and can be addicting.

What Are the Benefits of Trigger Point Massage Therapy? 

Trigger point massages can be beneficial for a wide variety of ailments. Trigger point massage therapy has been found to be especially beneficial for tension headaches. Trigger point massages have also been found to relieve pain from plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation in the bottom of the foot around the heel. More commonly, trigger point massages are used to alleviate back and neck pain. The muscles in these areas are prone to knots and can become tenses from everyday activities or even poor posture. Trigger point massages heal this pain in a natural way by reducing inflammation and promoting proper blood flow. Additionally, these massages reduce the chance of reoccurring pain.
